This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I received this book for free from Early Reviewers.

This book was great and the characters were awesome and well liked. I adored the alien cat and him seeing Earth for the first time with wonder. All the adventures he was on during his month on Earth were funny and cute. Good ending.

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. ( )

What a delightful story! For his 300th birthday fieldtrip, an alien gets to spend a month on Earth as a human. Alas, his flight goes awry and he finds he is a house cat instead. Then, he meets a young girl named Olive and the two of them try to sort out his predicament, while "Leonard" learns about humans (and about being a cat) along the way.

The book is an easy and fun read. We learn about what Leonard is as an alien but without getting bogged down with too much information, and the house cat perspective is both amusing and cleverly points out the little things that humans have that we often take for granted.

Leonard and Olive's relationship is endearing and the special things they do for each other makes this a heartwarming book about connecting with, and finding, family. ( )

To celebrate a 300th birthday in a distant galaxy where beings are immortal, one is allowed to travel to earth and assume any form for one month. One of these beings chooses human form, specifically a park ranger at Yellowstone National Park, an idea picked up from watching I Love Lucy that is used for preparation purposes. However, something goes wrong while he daydreams on the journey to earth, and he arrives as a cat in South Carolina. He arrived up a tree during a rainstorm where, fortunately, he is rescued by a girl named Olive. The return trip home after his month on earth poses some problems because the pickup is scheduled at Yellowstone on a specific date and time. A monumental task for a cat and an eleven-year-old to secretly arrange.

The description of the alien world - the hive - was unique, and the cat viewpoint highly entertaining especially to anyone familiar with cats. Recommended for middle grades but anyone will enjoy this story. I doubt many of the target audience are familiar with Lucy, or Jimmy Buffet, another reference, who is unknown even to me. Half a star off for that oversight. Still, this story is utterly charming and highly recommended. ( )

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 ( )
