Puss in Boots: The Adventures of that Most Enterprising Feline

Front Cover
Picture Corgi, 2001 - Children's stories - 24 pages
6 Reviews
An action-packed story in which Puss helps his master, Jacques, to find happiness and fortune, and in the meantime, lays to rest sleepless ghouls, cures a hermit's aches and foils the nasty Ogre. A glorious re-telling of a favourite tale, based on a script Philip Pullman wrote for a successful production at the Polka Children's Theatre. Illustrated with characteristic humour and aplomb by Ian Beck's pen-and-ink with watercolour artwork, peppered with amusing speech bubbles.
