Puss in Boots' is a true classic of the fairy tale genre, which has delighted readers both young and old, for many centuries. Known varyingly as the 'Master Cat; or, The Booted Cat', 'Il Gatto con Gli Stivali' in Italy and 'Le Maître Chat' in France, this feline trickster has made his way all over the globe. The story tells of a clever cat who uses trickery and deceit in order to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low born master. This particular version is beautifully illustrated by Josiah Wood Whymper (1813 - 1903), an English wood engraver and water colour painter. On its original publication in 1900, the book captured the imagination of British children, and ever since has remained a wonderful example of the combination of imaginative art and literary story telling.
