Description - Puss In Boots by Charles Perrault
Puss in Boots has been interpreted countless times since the classic French tale was first published in 1697, and Fred Marcellino provided an unstinting visual feast in his version. The adventures of that rascal, Puss, and his master, the miller's son, are portrayed in a lavish series of illustrations that range from sumptuous grandeur to comedy both boisterous and sly. Book lovers young and old will want this Puss in Boots on their shelf of special favourites.Fred Marcellino's illustrations are infused with golden light and summer warmth in the sun-dappled woods and beside the fields of ripe grain. Many of his paintings show a masterful use of perspective; the reader sometimes looks down on a scene as though from a balcony, or from below, at a huge charging lion.
