Yes. It was a fun and entertaining listen. The narrator was great.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator is great. She captures the “voices” and personalities of the characters perfectly. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of middle grade fantasy.
a Fun, Educational, Fantasy Adventure
Three words to describe Ghost Leopard by Lars Guignard: Fun, Smart, Adventure
The main characters of this story are Zoe and Zak. Zoe is a smart and regimented eleven year old. She sticks to the rules and enjoys learning new things. Zak is the complete opposite. He is impulsive, immature, and seems to find trouble wherever he goes. I loved both of these characters. The Mom part of me cringed at some of the predicaments they got themselves into and wanted to give them a stern lecture on all the dangers of wandering a foreign country but my inner child cheered them on and gobbled up all their antics and names that they made up for the bad guys… “Rhino-Butt”…I loved that one.
The story is set in India and I’m not ashamed to admit I learned a lot from this middle-grade book. I now know what a rickshaw is and several other words that I need to look up how to spell. The book does a great job of weaving culture, fantasy, and magic into a fun and educational read/listen.
Zoe and Zak's personalities are the best. I love the Zoe's dry humor and Zac's positive outlook.
I really enjoyed how the Elephant Egg of Life was brought into the story.
Sonja is a terrific narrator. She does an amazing job of capturing the personality of these two young characters.
I laughed out loud several times at some of the name's these kids come up with and the dry humor is great.
This is a great series for readers of all ages to enjoy. It offers adventure, mystery, culture, magic, and a coming of age tale as Zoe and Zak both struggle to accept their places and roles in this amazing world that Lars Guignard has created for them.

This story is about my home - exactly as it was when I was growing up there. I am from a small town that was split down the middle by the neighboring reservation to the one in this story. I was thrilled by the way Mr. Alexie wove the story of this amazing young man into the fabric of my own memories so seamlessly. This goes into my top 5 of all time. If you are searching for a sure-thing, a book that guarantees laughter, tears, joy, brutal honesty, amazing insight into a world few have glimpsed - then you need to get this book.
