About the Book:
you're totally lost in a strange city with no idea where you are and no way
imagine that elephants and snake charmers start telling you that you've been
chosen to save the world.
you even believe them? What would you
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.

My thoughts about the book:
Zoe and Zak and the Ghost Leopard was a delight to read. The author did a great job of weaving action and humor along with interesting facts about the history and culture of India into the story. The author does a great job of describing the scenes that I feel like I'm there with Zoe and Zack.
Once I started reading the book I had a hard time putting it down. I know this story is geared towards children but I think adults would enjoy it as well. I know I did.
