Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"Perrault's tale has never received a more faithful yet remarkably original treatment," PW said in a boxed review. "Marcellino's luxurious and skillfully designed paintings startle in their complexity and beauty." All ages. (Sept.)
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In Fischer's 1958 version of Charles Perrault's Puss in Boots, trans. by Anthea Bell, playful asides stress the engaging side of Puss's character; these include Puss struggling to walk upright in boots and practicing intimidating faces in front of a mirror. ($15.95 ISBN 1-55858-642-3, Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Inspired by a tale that has delighted readers for 300 years, Marcellino provides a visual feast in this picture book. Clever Puss helps his young master succeed in fooling a rich man and even wins his daughter's hand in marriage. Gorgeous gold-toned illustrations of the French Court and countryside fill every spread. 1991 Caldecott Honor Book, 1991 Notable Children's Book.
Children's Literature - Wendy Mann
The unique illustrations of Hans Fisher bring this new version of an old favorite to life. Fisher adds interesting special sections about Puss' trouble walking in boots, his fearfulness of the old magician and his use of frightening faces. The artwork offers readers the opportunity to view the work of a well-known Swiss illustrator while enjoying a timeless classic.
Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-This version is particularly accessible to the youngest readers while maintaining the integrity of the story. It is narrated in a straightforward manner, without embellishments, and the scarier elements are softened, e.g., Puss wins the castle from a magician rather than an ogre. Children may question whether he deserves his unfortunate fate, but the illustrations suggest that perhaps he is not the nicest magician on the block. In the end, the resourceful cat is forbidden to tell any more lies "...and so (like all Ministers of State) he never told anything but the truth." While older readers will appreciate the tongue-in-cheek humor, the illustrations, rendered in strong clear colors, are the highlight here. Puss's red boots are particularly snazzy, but, throughout, Lunelli balances soft muted tones with splashes of vivid yellow, green, and blue. His remarkable use of light and shadow give an overall sunny cast to the book. The smooth narrative and bright, attractive pictures make this a good choice for read-alouds. Older children may prefer Fred Marcellino's more sophisticated illustrations (Farrar, 1990), but Lunelli's style should appeal to them as well.-Donna L. Scanlon, Lancaster County Library, PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-With the excellent versions of this story available, notably those by Fred Marcellino (Farrar, 1990) and Alain Vaes and Lincoln Kirstein (Little, 1992), this current effort is sadly lacking. The classic story of the clever cat who brings his young master riches and happiness through goodhearted trickery is not well served by the artist's eye-catching but regrettably unpolished interpretation. Though Bell's text is clear, energetic, and readable, Thomas's hectic, overly bright illustrations are off-putting. It's a shame, since Bell's retellings are always worth reading.-Jennifer Fleming, Boston Public Library

    Wonderful translation

    Arthur, Malcolm. Puss in Boots. New York. Farrar, Straus and Giroux 1990. Illustrated by Fred Marcellino. Malcolm Arthur's retelling of the Charles Perrault classic, Puss in Boots has put a lighter spin to the dark tale. One of three sons of a miller is left only with a cat upon his father's death. The son is in despair, thinking that he cannot support himself with only a cat. The cat says to his new master, 'Don't worry master, just get me a sack and a pair of boots to carry me through the brambles and you'll see you have not come out as badly as you think.' Puss begins to spin his web of deceit to help his master to only win the hand of the King's beautiful daughter. Puss used his cunning skills to outsmart an Ogre by saying, 'I hear you can turn yourself into small animals, too, a rat or a mouse, for instance. That seems impossible.' The Ogre having a competitive nature changed himself into a mouse, which Puss quickly devoured, leaving a fabulous castle to his own master. The miller's son takes the beautiful princess as his bride, thus Puss having fulfilled his promise, he was made a 'Lord' and live the high life from that day forward. The illustrations by Fred Marcellino the illustrator of many well-known children's books, are wonderful and the story is delightful. This version of the classic tale even earned a Caldecott Honor award.

    This book is NOT the Caldecott Medal version.

    This NOOKbook comes up when you look for for Caldecott Medal books, but it IS NOT the Caldecott winning version. That may not make any difference to you, but since I was purchasing books for a class requiring all of the young adult and children's literature to be books which have won one of a list of certain awards, it means it was a TOTAL waste of money for me.
