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.
