Calico Rae's summer was a lonely wash-out before she came face-to-face with a hungry leopard! But rather than becoming the big cat's lunch, she discovered a magical power to control the beast. When her brother is kidnapped, Calico is forced to travel across the ocean in a desperate attempt to rescue him.

Good grammar interesting plot lines. I enjoyed the playfulness of the main characters. Children will definitely enjoy reading this book.
We really enjoyed this book. The children (who range from 5 to 14 ) all equally enjoyed this story. It has enough adventure and excitement to hold all of them with interest. The human / animal connections were delightful and loved by the youngest of our family (who is even now trying to bond with next doors cat). The main characters were so well written that we all were rooting for them.
