A new book by Michael Ruffo


Leo Travels To Italy is the second adventure book where Leo is confident and mature enough to venture on his own. With his cousin Tommaso as a guide, Leo visits various Italian cities and towns along the beautiful countryside. He gets an education in history, art, architecture, and indulges in fine Italian cuisine as he learns of his ancestral heritage. As Leo grows into an adult cat, he doesn't leave the kitten that will always be inside of him far behind.
