The story for children from 5 years is about a gingery cat Leonardo, who was thrown away and abandoned during Christmas, and about his funny adventures. The author knits into the story kindness, patience, and ability to understand the little creature, to create harmonic environment and at the same time not to loose a sense of playfulness and fun. Author's natural, dynamic, and modern language gives to the book a spark and vividness. It becomes actually a guide not only to maintain the attention, but to highlight the message of the piece as well. Leonard's master does not try to re-educate his little joker into an elegant obedient darling. Since the first moment, he loves him as he is.  The book is supplemented by Timotea Vráblová's guide Reading with Comprehension. The book was awarded The Most Beautiful Children's Book and The Best Children's Book of the Winter 2013. The book is a recommended didactic tool for elementary schools with the clause of the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic.
