An orphaned lad inherits a cat, and the two of them share a series of adventures, or rather misadventures. Puss In Boots regularly rescues the clueless human as he staggers from mishap to misadventure.
Lose your clothes while swimming in the river? Puss In Boots fetches some fancy royal clothes to dress the lad. Feeling lonely? Puss In Boots arranges circumstances so that a pretty princess falls in love with the lad. Living in a broken down hut? Puss In Boots obtains a castle for the lad and his princess. The saga continues, but this reviewer wouldn’t want to bore you with an endless number of rescues.
I think we can learn only one lesson from this book: Humans could not survive without cats!
