(back cover)
There are pusses that purr and pusses with fur. But a puss wearing boots-- could there be such a thing?

Meet Puss in Boots, a fine cat indeed, and with many a curious trick up his sleeve. Puss has a plan that will turn master Peter from lay-about loafer to prince of the land. Follow this tale of the cleverest of cats, with surprises at every turn . . .


Turn the wheel to see the watermill in action

Open the flaps to peek inside the royal carriage

Read the legend of the shape-shifting ogre

Pull the tab to see Puss defeat the ogre

Join the fun of the pop-up wedding celebration!

The very popular cat from the animated Shrek film series comes vividly alive in this brand-new book. Scheduled for publication this Fall to coincide with the November 4, 2011 release of the latest Shrek spin-off movie, Puss in Boots, it's the story of a quick-witted, feline--the pet of Peter, a good-natured but shiftless orphan boy. As the story begins, Peter's father, the village miller, has died, and he has bequeathed his son nothing more than a pet cat. But clever Puss is in fact a blessing in disguise. Puss wastes no time concocting a scheme in which he will go to the royal palace, befriend the king, and convince the king to transform young Peter into a fine nobleman, fit to marry a princess. But first, Peter must give Puss his very best pair of boots. Thus begins a new, funny, and fast-paced rendition of the classic children's adventure. It's retold in this beautifully illustrated edition by Stella Gurney, with Gerald Kelley's dynamic color illustrations on every page. Better yet, the pictures are enhanced with special features that add to the story's excitement. They include--

  • A wheel to turn that sets the watermill in action
  • A flap to open for kids to discover the contents of Puss's sack
  • Another wheel to turn that makes rabbits appear in their holes
  • A flap to open that shows the interior of the royal carriage
  • A miniature booklet recounting the legend of the shape-shifting ogre
  • A tab that opens a flap showing Puss catching the mouse
  • Another tab that unwraps the fine gifts for the king
  • A final pop-up illustration that shows the glorious wedding celebration

    Kids will be delighted as they read this lively new version of a famous fairy tale, and they'll be enchanted by the action-filled illustrations on every page.
