A bright, illustrated retelling of the classic fairy tale!
Long before appearing as the swashbuckling character in Dreamwork’s Shrek, the dashing Puss in Boots was told as a moral tale throughout Europe. The cat, given as the only inheritance to a poor miller’s son, promises to bring riches and prosperity to his new master, if he’ll only give him a beautiful pair of boots. With nothing to lose, the young man complies, and the cat sets off to the palace. Every day, the suave cat catches a creature and brings it to the king, claiming it a gift from the Duke of Carabas. The king is very pleased with his new presents. One day, the cat finds out that the king will be driving by with his daughter. He persuades his master to remove his clothes and jump in the river, soon setting into motion the rest of the clever cat’s plan for his master to become wealthy and powerful.
