Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard Blog Tour and Giveaway

The Tour is being Hosted HERE

About the Book:

Move over Percy Jackson.
Find out what everybody is talking about!
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 bestselling author Lars Guignard comes the kids' magic fantasy
adventure... GHOST LEOPARD.

Zoe and Zak are lost in exotic India, where gods and magic still exist. Before they can find their way home, they just have to do one little thing...

...Save a mythical creature from an ancient evil that
wants to rule the world.

When Zoe Guire goes along on her mom's business trip to India, things get very weird, very quickly. An elephant god speaks to her from the bottom of a swimming pool... She and her classmate Zak get locked in a trunk and shipped off to a strange city near the foothills of the Himalayas... and a crazy snake charmer tells them they've been chosen to protect a mythical creature called the Ghost Leopard from an ancient evil that wants to take over the world.
As they travel deeper into the majestic mountains known as the Realm of the Gods, things get even weirder. If she and Zak want to make it back to their parents, they're going to have to tap into powers they never knew existed.
Because if they don't, things will never be the same for any of us ever again.

My Review

Elephant gods, a map, villains, and secrets are just a scratch in the adventure Zoe and Zak find themselves discovering in India.

Zoe and Zak are young, but not short on courage and spunk.  This story is a wonderful middle grade adventure that will trap you in their world, and take you on an amazing journey.

Zoe and Zak are constantly getting themselves in difficult situations  However, they find help where they least expect it, and these guides help them along the way for the ultimate goal, protect the Ghost Leopard.  The story instantly starts with a heap full of action, and never slows down.  It's a colorful story, with humor thrown in, and the personalities of Zoe and Zak were captured beautifully.  The culture of India makes the imagination of this fantasy come alive.

Don't think this story is only for the young, think of it as a story for the young at heart.  It's an amazing story that the whole family can enjoy together.

I believe this is just the start of the amazing adventures Zoe and Zak will become involved in, especially with Zoe's newly found power and Zak's huge curiosity.

Guignard has wanted to write Indian stories for kids ever since he attended a boarding school in the majestic Himalayas. The time he spent in the “school above the clouds” affected him
profoundly, and once he returned home to North America he was struck by the lack of children’s stories from India available in our culture. Since India is such an incredible country, he decided
