Tiger, tiger

From Publishers' Weekly:

British actress Francis gives a crisp and skillfully shaded reading of this thought-provoking story about love, political intrigue and nature vs. nurture set in ancient Rome. Her accent and generally bright delivery help balance the accessible themes and exotic background. Two lion cubs snatched from the jungle are taken to Rome where one becomes a brutal fighter in the Colosseum and the other becomes the pampered pet (called Boots) of Aurelia, daughter of Caesar. As Aurelia's 12th year progresses she explores her feelings for Julius, the slave and keeper of Boots, and comes to understand the mighty power her father holds. When Boots escapes and Julius is falsely blamed, Aurelia must face some awful truths-about humans and lions, too. Francis gives Aurelia the kind of authentic emotional depth that will keep listeners hooked on this exciting drama. Ages 12-up. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
