«IMAGINE YOU COULD SUDDENLY SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF CATS AND DOGS!»

That’s Leonard’s story.

One morning, he wakes up to find Loulou the cat sitting on his bed and starts talking to her. Leonard opens up and shares his fears of going to school and his experience of being bullied by his peers. In response, Loulou takes Leonard to the cats’ world and it’s there that Leonard learns what it’s like to be treated with respect. In exchange, Leonard teaches the cats and dogs how humans express their feelings.
