    Edited by D. Wondering if Puss in Boots is OK for your kid? 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. This new film's story bears no similarities to the book.

    The protagonist, a handsome silver-tabby British shorthair, boasts elegant black-velvet stripes and intelligent green eyes. The poor young man eventually becomes King of Bohemia. Sexy Stuff Puss calls himself a "lover" and in the opening sequence is shown tip-toeing out of a female cat's house he "dresses" with a belt, hat, and his signature boots. The master cat continued to run ahead and said the same words to all he met.

    Puss in Boots had told the local farmers and mowers that if anybody asked them, they should reply that the land they work on belonged to the Lord Marquis of Carabas, otherwise they would be chopped up like herbs. Morality is of little concern in these tales, but rather, an assurance is provided that one can survive and succeed in life. Travelling on ahead of the castle, Puss in Boots managed to get inside and spoke to the owner of the castle, who was an ogre. The king arrives at the castle that formerly belonged to the ogre, and, impressed with the bogus Marquis and his estate, gives the lad the princess in marriage.

Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale

In this case of course, it is the cat who displays the characteristics and the man benefits from his trickery and skills. The cat, quite overjoyed to see how his project was succeeding, ran on ahead. The king arrives at the castle that formerly belonged to the ogre, and, impressed with the bogus Marquis and his estate, gives the lad the princess in marriage.

As soon as the cat saw this, he fell upon him and ate him up. But in Puss in Boots, that joke wears out its welcome in 15 minutes. In truth, the cunning cat had hidden the clothes under a large stone. The ogre received him as civilly as an ogre could do, and invited him to sit down.
