Summary

Perrault's classic tale is brought to vivid life through the exquisite illustrations of Marcellino. A Caldecott Honor winner and an ALA Notable Children's Book. Full color.

Author Biography

CHARLES PERRAULT (1628–1703) is considered the original creator of the fairy tale, having written such classics as Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.
 
FRED MARCELLINO (1939–2001) began his career in illustration with A Rat’s Tale (available from Farrar Straus Giroux). Puss in Boots was his first full-color picture book and a Caldecott Honor winner. He continued to win awards and receive critical acclaim for his children’s books until his death in 2001.

Table of Contents

“This picturebook provides a fitting showcase for Perrault’s artful tale of deceit and recourcefulness. Befitting a fairy tale, the artwork inside is suffused with a golden light that proclaims the story to be from a sunnier, more dreamlike world.”—Booklist, Starred Review
 
“Large and strikingly original illustrations embellish a straight-forward retelling of the famous story. . . . The pictures are filled with sly details . . . A noteworthy edition . . . splendid for reading aloud.”—The Horn Book, Starred Review
 
“The artist’s luxurious and skillfully designed paintings startle in their complexity and beauty. . . . This version of Perrault’s classic story is brilliantly conceived and executed.”—Publishers Weekly, Boxed Review
