Overview

"A serious, well-behaved young black cat, who leads a daring double life defeating vile villains."

When Miss Kitty sneaks out to go hunting in her beautiful boots, she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes, but on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all - Mr. Tod!

This utterly entertaining tale is filled with mistaken identities, devious villains and even an appearance from Peter Rabbit.

Told with Beatrix Potter's trademark dry humour and wry observations, this brilliant tale is sure to become as popular as her original classics and is illustrated by the best-loved Quentin Blake.

About the Author

Beatrix Potter (Author)
Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.

A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.

Quentin Blake (Illustrator)
Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.

The illustrations, done by Quentin Blake (acclaimed illustrator of so many Roald Dahl books), are utterly delightful and charming. They are what make this book. The story is simple and lovely, but without the illustrations, it's incomplete, hence why Quentin Blake was chosen to bring the story to life. He did a fantastic job. I love it!

The Tale of Kitty In Boots was written by Beatrice Potter but not published until now. The story has engaging characters and the plot has some surprises, so it's an enjoyable read. However, I'm extremely disappointed in the illustrations. They look like water colored over pencil sketches for the planned illustrations. The expressions on the cats faces are wide eyed zombie looking. It would have been better to use the artist that does the "book" for the Geico commercials, or leave the illustrations out. So that's why I'm giving this book only 3 stars.
