Oh, that clever cat! In her simply composed yet richly colored and textured cartoon illustrations, Spanish illustrator Carmen Saldaña pictures Puss in Boots as a stocky ginger cat with wise eyes. Published in Australia, this contemporary edition of the tale features a humorous, less-violent telling for readers and listeners up to 7. Though the friendly Puss is quite the hunter, and provides several feasts of wild game for the king—all the while convincing him they are gifts from his master, the Marquis of Carabas—it is only when he tricks a powerful, magical ogre into becoming a mouse that we see how frightening Puss would be to such a tiny creature. (The sharp-eyed reader may even spot a mouse or two throughout the story, hiding behind a rock whenever the cat is near.)
