Reading a book about a World where a boy can speak “cat”. A World where cars have recharge stations, those who have petrol cars, are either very rich of have a license to use/sell the commodity. A World where allergies are rife and there is a strange place where all those who live there are extremely cheerful and un-naturally living with a notion that they should be doing something else, but not sure what. A World perhaps not that far from our own ?

Lionboy The Chase by Zizou Corder Book Jacket

Lionboy The Chase by Zizou Corder

A book called Lionboy The Chase by Zizou Corder. A fantastic read whether you are eight or ninety eight. (I don’t care that it says it’s for 8 to 12 year olds !)

There is a a chapter in the book where the main caracter Charlie is overlooking Venice from a window above the roof tops of the City and what came to mind was this print from Mairi Aitken and her outlook on Sorrento.

How did I end up reading this book, you may ask ? That’s another story, but I may have to find the other two in the Trilogy !
