Charles Perrault

Puss in Boots

A miller died and his three sons inherited him. The oldest got the mill, the middle one got a donkey and the youngest got a cat. The poor boy thought the fate was unfair to him as he could not do that much with the cat he received. But the cat was not an ordinary one. If the boy was willing to get a pair of boots for the cat, then it was going to make its master rich. How you may think? Well by lying to the king that its master is actually Lord Marquis of Carabas. Do you think the king would believe this lie and how will the cat and its owner end up? Find out in “Puss in Boots”.

Charles Perrault (1628–1703) was a French author. He is known for being a pioneer of the fairy tale genre, deriving his stories from traditional folk tales.
