An illustrated story book for little children, continuing the interesting character of Puss in Boots that is known the world over by all little folks.
The world outgrows some books, just as the individual reader has inevitably passed that stage in his development in which he took delight in the adventures of "Puss in Boots Jr." In any case, perfect sincerity is even more important than critical acumen.

Our literary pretense is more universal than any other time in terms of our method of education. The youth who objected to the alphabet that it seemed hardly worthwhile to have gone through so much to have acquired so little, was exceptionally sagacious; the more ordinary lad conceives that what has cost him so much time and trouble, and entailed so many pains and penalties, must needs have something in it, and soon it will meet his eye.
