Product Description

Synopsis

Make way for the Marquis of Carabas...and his cat, Puss in Boots! This beloved fairy tale about a clever cat and his young master gets an exciting new life through the art of Steve Light. With bright collages featuring patterned papers and fabric, this lively retelling will be a favorite with youngsters everywhere. When an old miller dies, he leaves everything to his three sons - and the youngest just gets the cat. But Puss persuades her young master to buy her a sturdy pair of boots - and then she swings into action! Soon she is visiting the king and presenting him with gifts of fresh game, presents from "the Marquis of Carabas," as she has renamed the miller's son. Then one fateful day, the king mentions that he will be taking his beautiful daughter for a carriage ride through the countryside. Puss quickly arranges for them to rescue the Marquis from "drowning" in the river. Then, running ahead of the carriage, she convinces all the peasants to tell the king that he is traveling through the lands of the Marquis. At last, Puss outsmarts a diabolical (but very rich) ogre to obtain a suitable home for the Marquis - and not a moment too soon, for here comes the king's carriage!

5.0 out of 5 stars We thoroughly enjoyed this delightfully illustrated tale! 19 Mar 2010
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Both my kindergartner and I love fairy tales and folk tales. We saw this title at our local library and promptly checked it out. The story is a retelling of the classic tale of Puss in Boots, written and illustrated by Steve Light. The pages open to reveal vivid and bold collage art with the text of the story displayed at the bottom of each page. The retelling is quite faithful to the original, but the highlight of this book is the wonderful, eye-catching illustrations which had my kindergartner falling in love with the adorable puss! We will definitely be checking out more titles by this author/illustrator.
5.0 out of 5 stars mixed media packs a punch 15 Mar 2011
By M. Heiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The pages of this book are candy-colored and delicious. Steve Light combines painted backgrounds with sketches, cut paper, and fabric to create a visual treat.

It's fun to have your older children mimic the style of these illustrations - magazine pages and stamped motifs and sketches do the trick.
5.0 out of 5 stars Puss In Boots as Retold by Steve Light 22 April 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I think it is a special classic. The art work is dramatic and makes you feel like you are really there. I think all children would enjoy this tale of a talking cat.
