Charlie Ashanti is the son of two scientists who are kidnapped as the result of a dramatic discovery they've made (the cure for asthma, which is rampant in this near-future world). Ten-year-old Charlie decides to go in search of them, and uses his ability to speak Cat (which he's had ever since he was scratched by a leopard as a baby) to gain helpful information. The local cats of London point him in the right direction and even deliver messages from him to his parents and back. When Charlie finds himself aboard a floating circus that's heading to Paris, he befriends the circus lions, who become his further accomplices. He'll help them escape the circus as this first book in a trilogy draws to a close.

The book was very enjoyable to listen to. It’s execution of the speaking to cats idea is very unique and well done in my opinion. Got two minor points of critique: First being that the pacing seemed a little bit weird every now and then. The book has this moment but then the pacing is just off. Second is that further in the book the underlying emotion got a bit repetitive. There were only three main feelings I got from it listening to it, and tho they were well distributed, I was missing a little bit of variation every now and then. The narrator was very good, and tho completely irrelevant, I liked his accent. Nothing much to say about the narration besides that. It was just simply good.
