Puss In Boots

Jerry Pinkney

Jerry Pinkney’s new version of Puss in Boots has sumptuous watercolor illustrations with a straightforward retelling of this classic tale. A dapper Puss is featured in scarlet boots and a hat brimmed in colorful plumes. His mischievous personality radiates through dramatic gestures and amusing expressions. Pinkney’s clever cat tricks a king and a sorcerer in order to gain a princess and a castle for his master. Caldecott-Award winning Pinkney (The Lion and the Mouse, 2009) studied over twenty versions of the story before he created this– a splendid retelling filled with wonderful details and entertaining scenes. Beautiful. Ages 6-9
