Puss in Boots by John Cech


Puss in Boots by John Cech

This title is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. When a poor miller dies, he has nothing to leave his son but a cat. Fortunately, it's a very smart cat. With just a pair of boots, a feathered hat and a cloth bag, the wily Puss changes his master's luck, transforming him from a peasant into a prince. John Cech and Bernhard Oberdieck have teamed up once again to present a clever and enchanting retelling of one of the oldest fairy tales of all.
