Leonard (My Life As A Cat) by Carlie the Sorosiak is one of the best children's books I've read in a long time. I chose to read this to my granddaughter and found myself struggling not to read ahead when she wasn't around. The author has a wicked sense of humour and a profound sense of humanity. We laughed out loud more than once.

Leonard is actually an alien who meant come to Earth as a human and spend one month in Yellowstone Park working as ranger. Unfortunately, something went wrong and he arrived hundreds of miles away, in the middle of a flash flood and in the body of a cat. He was rescued by a ten-year-old named Olive who is also a unique individual and going through tribulations of her own.

Leonard can type to communicate and can understand every species on the planet. It becomes Olive’s mission get him to the rendezvous point within a month's time so that he can continue his immortal, hive-like, logical life. Olive tries to enrich his stay by fulfilling his unusual bucket-list, unusual that is, for a cat. However, a lot can change in a month. Both Leonard and Olive develop deep feelings for each and as the date approaches, we also find ourselves torn.

There are complications galore included the near impossibility of getting to the rendezvous point on time. Sorosiak builds the suspense and our angst over how this story will end. But she handles it like a master.

This story is about family, friendship, acceptance, love, courage, and sacrifice. My granddaughter and I were in tears when it was over, realizing that there could never be a more perfect ending. ( )

After reading Leonard (My Life as a Cat) I will never look at a cat the same way. In fact, I just might have encountered an alien or two in my life time. Knowing the cats that have owned me, they no doubt think I’m the alien!
Leonard has an immortal life as a corporal being on a planet far from Earth. He has been anxiously awaiting his 300th birthday. Three hundred is very special to his species as they are allowed to travel across the cosmos to Earth and for one month assume the body of any creature. Leonard chooses to be human and wants to be a park ranger at Yellowstone National Park. He have been planning everything out, down to the smallest detail.
Then in the briefest moment of inattention on the trip to Earth, his well laid plans go awry. He crash lands in a tree during a tropical storm in South Carolina. He is miles and miles away from Yellowstone which is his drop off and pick up point. How will a cat get to Yellowstone? Fortunate for Leonard Olive rescues him and he embarks on an adventure more exciting and fulfilling the one he planned for himself.
This is a delightful, middle grade story. The plot is about what happens with things don’t go as planned. However, the message of the story is one of love, friendship and how they save us. The character of Leonard was quirky and perfect. His desire to experience things like movies and bowling made for some humorous moments. It also contains some excellent life lessons, such as it is okay to be different. I ask you, what is wrong with a cat walking on a leash?
I was originally drawn to this book because I am an animal lover. Yet, it is a story for all types of readers. I highly recommend this one for everyone who wants a funny, feel good story full of life lessons.
I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. For more of my reviews, and author interviews, see my blog at www.thespineview.com ( )

Adored this.

Leonard, an alien, has a once in a lifetime opportunity to embody any creature on earth for one month. He has his heart set on being a park ranger, however, a mix-up on his path to earth turns him into a cat. Almost immediately Leonard needs rescuing and it just so happens that eleven year old Olive is in the right place at the right time and she’s desperately in need of a friend.

The book is told from Leonard’s point of view, an intelligent and kind alien who is very much sensitive to Olive’s feelings and not only is he pretty ingenious when it comes to communicating via crayons and laptops, he can talk to other animals as well (pretty much every conversation with Stanley the dog is a gem thanks to Stanley’s obsession with birds). There is also plenty of cat behavior going on which you don’t need to be a cat person to find entertaining, that along with quirks like Leonard’s list of human activities he wants to try, and his fascination with cheese sandwiches and I Love Lucy, sprinkle levity throughout the story.

I loved Olive, she is just such a sweetheart with her warmth, her thoughtfulness and her daisy barrettes. Unlike her mom’s awful boyfriend, I found Olive’s habit of talking about animal facts charming and it speaks to the level of writing that even without Olive having her own POV, I had such a strong sense of her emotional life, my heart frequently went out to her, dipping and lifting right along with her.

I fear that the alien/cat thing might have some readers thinking this will be too odd for them and that would be unfortunate as it’s a mostly down to earth story, if you give it a try, Olive and Leonard’s friendship might just win you over within the first couple pages.

I received this ARC through a giveaway. ( )
