If you loved Harry Potter, if you couldn’t get enough of Percy Jackson, if you’re wondering what to read after The Mark of Athena – from, Lars Guignard, the bestselling author of Lethal Circuit, comes the brand new, kids’ magic fantasy adventure… GHOST LEOPARD
Imagine you’re totally lost in a strange city with no idea where you are and no way home.
Now imagine that elephants and snake charmers start telling you that you’ve been chosen to save the world.
Would you even believe them? What would you do?
Zoe Guire isn’t sure. Having that elephant talk to her was really 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, the world will never be the same again.
Join Zoe and Zak as they journey high into the Himalayas to a place few have been and even fewer have returned to tell about it.
Live life beyond the edge.
First of all, let me say that I LOVE the cover of this
book.It appealed to me so much that it
tipped the scales for me when it came to my decision to read Ghost
Leopard. Early on, though, I was appalled that parents would leave two
eleven-year-old children in a strange country in the care of a babysitter for
four or five days.Further, the
rent-a-nanny was not even expected to be with the children 24/7.Putting that aside, however, the kids did end
up on quite the adventure and they were guided and watched over during most of
their travels by some unusual and cool characters.I loved the mythology, scenery, and cultural
differences since the adventure takes place in India.This book should be quite appealing to the
target age group. I believe my ten-year-old granddaughter will enjoy the story
and I intend to buy it for her as a birthday present.
I received a free digital copy of this book from the author in return for my honest review.
