Book Description

Imagine how ]acques feels when he learns that his older brothers have inherited the mill and the donkey, and all he's got is the cat' Well, he's not fed up for long, because he soon discovers that Puss is no ordinary cat... not only can he talk (which is pretty unusual for a cat), but he's also got brains. And he's got a plan - a plan that involves ]acques, a Royal Princess and a very large fortune! However, there are some things that Puss hasn't included in his plan, such as a very hungry Ogre, some sleepless Ghouls and more than a touch of magic ... Philip Pullman's action-packed and very funny re-telling of Puss in Boots, based on the play he wrote for the Polka Theatre, is illustrated in wonderfully dramatic style by Ian Beck. Packed with adventure, jokes and a whole cast of exciting characters, it will have readers of all ages sitting on the edge of their seats!
