"This mother-daughter author pair, writing under their charming pseudonym, know how to create a fast-paced and adventure-packed novel. Thanks to the gift of "catspeak," Charlie has solved a kidnapping mystery and befriended lions. Separated yet again from his family, Charlie has to call upon all his creative powers and technical know-how to facilitate a reconciliation of multiple forces. Simon Jones's narration brings authority and precision to each twist as he maintains the fast pacing that such a story merits. His characterizations distinguish animal from man, friend from foe, and love from hate. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
