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 . . .

Hello again ! Fun stuff ! Live those vintage illustrations 😊
thanks for the trip down memory lane, what a great way to honor the classics.
Love this! Had a kitty that looked just like that – and just love those froggies in picture too – these old illustrations are simply the best. It is great that you share them!!
Thank you! I like this cat too – how nice that you had a similar kitty – did your cat tell you fairy tales?
