A walk in the woods turns into a funny, philosophical and irresistibly charming mini-adventure.In this witty tale of insistent parents and talking animals, a child questions his purpose. In the country, there’s nothing to do, except: admire. It’s the same as being bored, but with your eyes wide open.The hilarious story of grumpy city-child Leonard, forced to go for country walks with his greenery-loving mum and dad, is a wonderful reminder of what use we may be to the world. What do we know? What can we do? And is any of it of real value?The Pointless Leopard is a charming tale for all, about the parts we play in the lives of others.
“Overflowing with love and humor.” — Le Monde des Livres“Joyful.”– Notes bibliographiques“[Delphine Perret’s illustrations are] by turns hilarious and moving.” — Parol“The hilarity of juxtaposing the issue of the purpose of one’s existence with discussing philosophy with country animals carries us through what actually could have been a pretty dark tale! . . . [an] entertaining journey of self-discovery.” — The Book Wars
