Publisher's Summary

If you loved Harry Potter, if you couldn't get enough of Percy Jackson, if you're wondering what to listen to after The Kane Chronicles - from, Lars Guignard, the author of Lethal Circuit, comes the brand new, kids' magic fantasy adventure....
Ghost Leopard
Zoe Guire just talked to an elephant. Well, technically speaking, the elephant spoke to her, but either way it was weird and, as a rule, Zoe doesn't do weird. Except the thing is, when Zoe goes along on her mom's business trip to India, things get very weird, very quickly. Soon after she arrives, Zoe finds herself tagging alongside a kid named Zak, lost in a crazy city, with no money and no way home.
And those are the least of Zoe's troubles. Because if she's to believe the scary-looking snake charmer guy sitting in the corner, she and Zak have been chosen - chosen to protect some kind of mythical animal called the Ghost Leopard from who knows what.
Now, the further they get into the mountains, the more crazily impossible things get. Carpets fly and statues talk and if either Zoe or Zak want to make it back to their parents, or the sixth grade, or anything even close to normal, they're going to have to make some new friends, learn some new tricks, and listen, really listen to that talking elephant. Because if they don't, nothing will ever be the same again.

Three words to describe Ghost Leopard by Lars Guignard: Fun, Smart, Adventure

The main characters of this story are Zoe and Zak. Zoe is a smart and regimented eleven year old. She sticks to the rules and enjoys learning new things. Zak is the complete opposite. He is impulsive, immature, and seems to find trouble wherever he goes. I loved both of these characters. The Mom part of me cringed at some of the predicaments they got themselves into and wanted to give them a stern lecture on all the dangers of wandering a foreign country but my inner child cheered them on and gobbled up all their antics and names that they made up for the bad guys… “Rhino-Butt”…I loved that one.

The story is set in India and I’m not ashamed to admit I learned a lot from this middle-grade book. I now know what a rickshaw is and several other words that I need to look up how to spell. The book does a great job of weaving culture, fantasy, and magic into a fun and educational read/listen.

Fun adventure

Any additional comments?

Elephant gods, a map, villains, and secrets are just a scratch in the adventure Zoe and Zak find themselves discovering in India.

Zoe and Zak are young, but not short on courage and spunk. This story is a wonderful middle grade adventure that will trap you in their world, and take you on an amazing journey.
