Puss in Boots

Fairy Tale with picture glossary and an activity

By Pat-a-Cake and Rachel Elliot
Illustrated by Sharon Harmer

  • Hardback
  • £4.99

A beautiful read-aloud story to share, with a visual glossary and an activity to take young children deeper into the story.

Jack is struggling, so Puss promises to make his fortune in return for a pair of special, shiny red boots. The wily cat pulls off some clever tricks and Jack ends up with a castle of his very own.

This story is a perfect introduction to the classic tale, with its gentle, rhythmic text and bright, friendly illustrations.

It's never too early to introduce children to the magic and wonder of classic tales. Familiar characters are brought to life at each turn of the page with spellbinding artwork and lyrical writing. A visual glossary at the beginning introduces new vocabulary and promotes understanding. A lively activity at the end invites discussion and will make even the very youngest children want to return to these story books again and again.

Fairy tales and classic stories are a vital introduction to the basics of storytelling like setting, characters and plot. They boost a child's imagination and also teach valuable life lessons about good overcoming evil, the difference between right and wrong and the importance of rising to a challenge.

Also available: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs.
