9780147515759: Puss in Boots

A beautifully illustrated retelling of the beloved fairy tale from Caldecott Medal-winning author Jerry Pinkney

 
For generations, children have been enchanted by the tale of the clever cat in fancy boots who outsmarts a king and a sorcerer to win a castle and a bride for his penniless master. The humor, the magic, and a lush Renaissance setting are all on glorious display, and a well-placed gatefold adds to the drama. This elegant new edition of Charles Perrault's folktale is essential for every child's library. Read it in tandem with other Pinkney classic picture books like The Little Red Hen and The Lion and the Mouse.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 4-Set in early-18th-century France, this adaptation of Charles Perrault's classic tale is filled with lushly delineated period details, moments of tingling excitement, and playful humor. The protagonist, a handsome silver-tabby British shorthair, boasts elegant black-velvet stripes and intelligent green eyes. Bequeathed to a miller's youngest son, the can-do cat promises that he will prove his worth if provided with appropriate footwear and a draw-string sack. Puss gets to work, cunningly using the sack to hunt game, courteously presenting his prizes to the king, and continually singing the praises of his master (dubbed the Count of Carabas). Cleverly orchestrating a meeting between the young man and the king's lovely daughter, Puss bamboozles the monarch into believing that Benjamin is a man of means and then procures these riches by tricking an evil sorcerer out of his holdings. The story ends with a royal wedding and Puss-now prime minister-contemplating future adventures (the rear endpaper shows him captaining a sailing ship). The text clearly relates the plot with lyrical language and vivacious energy, and the color-pencil and watercolor artwork showcases the period's costumes, architecture, and landscapes. Perfectly timed highpoints (and a foldout page) emphasize the sorcerer's transformations into various animals (in response to Puss's taunting dare), as well as the cat pouncing on the man-turned-helpless-mouse. Accessible and eye-catching, this is a fitting companion to Fred Marcellino's exquisite rendition (Farrar, 1990).-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journalα(c) Copyright 2011.

Descripción Puffin. 1 Paperback(s), 2012. soft. Estado de conservación: New. One of our most talented and celebrated illustrator-storytellers—with five Caldecott Honors, five Coretta Scott King Awards, and five New York Times Best Illustrated Book awards—Jerry Pinkney follows up his Caldecott Medal–winning adaptation of Aesop's "The Lion and the Mouse" with this opulent retelling of Charles Perrault's "Puss in Boots," for readers of all ages. The finely detailed, richly textured watercolors are ideal for capturing the swashbuckling style of Puss, a sleek silver tabby who, left to his own devices, secures a life of wealth and prestige for his poor master. Pinkney stages his interpretation in early 18th-century France—evident in the king's elaborate coach, a turreted château, and the frilly, fancy outfits worn by the king and the courtiers—and lends magical effects to the transformations of the evil sorcerer, rendered in a dramatic fold-out illustration."This adaptation of Charles Perrault's classic tale is filled with lushly delineated period details, moments of tingling excitement, and playful humor. The story ends with a royal wedding and Puss—now prime minister—contemplating future adventures (the rear endpaper shows him captaining a sailing ship). The text clearly relates the plot with lyrical language and vivacious energy, and the color-pencil and watercolor artwork showcases the period's costumes, architecture, and landscapes."—School Library Journal 40.
