Puss in Boots (Sterling Classic Fairy Tale Collection)
|Series:||(Sterling Classic Fairy Tale Collection)|
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.
John Cech writes plays, poetry and fiction for both children and adults and is a professor of English at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He has served as a judge for The New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year, as well as the Boston Globe/Horn Book Awards. Bernhard Oberdieck has illustrated numerous books, including The Princess and the Pea and enjoys international acclaim. He uses a variety of media, including coloured pencils, pastels and acrylics, to create his fine, detailed work.
