Puss in Boots
This pocket-sized Ladybird edition of Puss in Boots is a wonderfully comforting version of the classic fairy tale. This is a great read-aloud book for adults to read to children but also for children, who can read to themselves or retell from the pictures.
Children love the pattern of fairy tales and enjoy the repetition of reading them over and over again. The end papers provide a pre-printed book plate for children to write their name on and also a mini image of the 24 fairy tales in the series to identify and maybe go on to find at school or in the library. Puss in Boots may also be familiar to children from the film Shrek.
