Summary

An alien visiting Earth incognito is accidentally transferred into the body of a cat, not into that of a park ranger as intended. In this form he meets a young girl and they set out on a journey together.


Leonard has never had a name. Or a body. Or a best friend. But he is excited to try being a human.

On their three-hundredth-birthday, every alien from Leonard's home galaxy gets to spend a month in the body of an Earth Creature. Leonard was supposed to become a forest ranger in Yellowstone National Park - but there was a mix-up.

And now he's stuck as a stray cat.

Luckily for Leonard, he meets a young human called Olive - and together they set out on a journey to find home.

Book of the week

This is a wholly fresh take on some familiar tropes with hugely likeable characters and a cracking road trip mission for a finale. A really enjoyable read with some emotional punch as well! And the observations about life on Earth from our alien tourist hero are pretty spot on and shot through with a warm, wry humour. Think a modern version of 'ET' but with a bit less Spielberg schmaltz!
