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.

Read it in tandem with other Pinkney classic picture books like The Little Red Hen and The Lion and the Mouse.
