9781522711414: Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard (A Zoe & Zak Adventure) (Volume 1)

Some say all children are born with magic inside of them. Zoe Guire is about to find out if that's true. Zoe doesn't believe in ghosts. She doesn't believe in mythical creatures. And she definitely doesn't believe in magic. But it's amazing how quickly everything you think you believe can change when you're confronted by the impossible. When Zoe finds herself lost, halfway around the world, her first thought is that she needs to get back to where she came from. Fast. But her friend Zak has other ideas, and when a peculiar snake charmer directs them deep into the Himalayan Mountains in search of a mythical leopard, what began as an accident soon takes on a life of its own. Zoe isn't worried. Not at first anyhow. Sure the talking elephant is strange, and the snake charming yogi is stranger, but she's a big girl. She figures she can handle it. But then, somewhere between the living statues and the screeching monkeys, Zoe realizes that what is happening to her and Zak is no accident. It's the result of something Zoe has deep within her, an energy so powerful, yet so personal, that she alone can right a deadly wrong. But nobody said confronting an ancient evil would be easy. And Zoe and Zak will have no chance at all unless they put aside their differences and believe. Discover the magic inside of you. Join Zoe and Zak on their Himalayan adventure today.

From the Author:

I've been asked why I wrote Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard a bunch of times, so I thought I'd share...

The story takes place in India where two kids, Zoe and Zak, end up going on a magical adventure. Wait a minute, did I say India? Yeah, India. It's kind of far away from North America, or Europe for that matter, so you might wonder, given that I'm not Indian, why I set it there?

The answer is that I had the good fortune of having my parents send me off to boarding school in the Indian Himalayas when I was kid, There wasn't exactly a logical reason for this, given that I was already going to a perfectly good school and I'd never been to that part of the world, but through a strange and convoluted series of events it happened, leaving me to attend a crazy old boarding school perched high amongst the clouds in the tallest mountains on Earth.

Now it seems to me that a lot of the things in life that blindside us with their utter randomness, also tend to have a pretty big impact. It was like that with me and India. The things I saw there were so amazing, the impact on my life so profound, that I decided to write a book set in a magical approximation of that far off place.

Granted, the India I write about is in no way the whole picture - it's not some kind of fancy cultural study of the country and it's not meant to be. What it is, is a whimsical adventure to an enchanted place, where the bounds of reality are pushed to a point where quite literally anything, and I mean anything, is possible.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you read the book, don't expect a social studies report, because you won't get one. What you will get is a magic carpet ride straight into the imagination. If you're a kid who loves magic and adventure, dreams of going to new places, and hates being bored, then take a chance and check Zoe & Zak out.  I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

Over and Out,

Lars Guignard
