The Great Black Cat!

Illustration:  Great Black Cat.  The Magical House of Zur.  By Mary Dickerson Donahey.  Barse & Hopkins: New York. 1914.

The great black cat stalked out in front of the little circle and told the story of “Puss in Boots.”

He turned his great yellow-green eyes upon the row of winged children and they all shivered with joy. To think of sitting up and hearing a cat tell a story!

He began at the beginning, and told the story of “Puss in Boots” as it had never been told before . . .
