To know Puss Junior once is to love him forever! That's the way everyone feels about this adventurous cat who is the son of a very famous father, Puss in Boots.
In the Puss in Boots, Jr series of ten books written by David Cory and originally published in 1917-1922, Puss Junior discovers that he is the son of the illustrious Puss in Boots and he begins a journey across Mother Goose Land to find his famous father. Along the way, Puss Junior meets characters from children's fiction and nursery rhymes, helps the weak and downtrodden, and learns something about life from everyone he meets.
Puss Junior actually finds his father in Book Two, but the books were so popular that David Cory continued to write eight more adventures. In Book 10, Puss Junior flies with Mother Goose on her Gander, meets Tommy Tittle Mouse, ten Boy Scouts, Dr. Austen, Cinderella, Little Nannie Ettigoat, and Yankee Doodle Dandy. He travels to Babylon, Boston, and the Moon. He makes a speech, swordfights a bully, and tells stories by the fireplace. And, of course, Puss Junior meets the Man in the Moon.
The original illustrations by Elizabeth Babcock are included in the stories, enlarged so they can be colored with colored pencils or crayons.
The Puss in Boots, Jr books are lovely reminders that simple words can awaken the imaginations of children and adults alike, just as they did one hundred years ago. The original stories have been edited to change archaic words and references. Reading level is second grade but much younger children will enjoy hearing the stories read to them.
