Gitta's Literary Escapades

Just another reader taking on (modern) classics, best-sellers, award-winners, non-fiction, and (guilty pleasure) chicklit armed with common sense, a brain and feminism.

Puss in Boots - Charles Perrault Review Series #4

The Tales Of Mother Goose - Charles Perrault, D.J. Munro, Gustave Doré, Charles Welsh

Welcome to the fourth part of the Charles Perrault Review Series.

An eight-part serialised set of reviews of the famous fairy tales by the seventeenth-century French author.

 

Each week I will upload a review of one of his tales. For an overall introduction, read the first review.

 

 

IV. Master Cat; or, Puss in Boots

Perrault’s version of this nifty kitty cat is the only version I've read so far and it’s the version I was told as a child.

 

Help! the marquis of Carabas is drowing

The cat helps his master by procuring for him lavish clothing and eventually a castle. He, moreover, finds him a wife and is thus, all in all, a very good servant/pet.
