The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
The Tale of Kitty - In - Boots
Miss Kitty is an elegant and graceful house cat, well-behaved and doted on by her owner. However, at night she sneaks out to the woods to pursue her favourite pastime: poaching!
When she goes out on her latest hunt she encounters lots of interesting characters, gets herself into a few scrapes, and ends up in quite the predicament.
Miss Kitty's story was never published in Beatrix Potter's lifetime and remained un-illustrated for 100 years. The tale is yet another great example of Potter's unique and hilarious writing style, while Quentin Blake's new yet familiar illustrations bring to life a warm and mischievous story.
This stylish yet simple book is a must read for Potter fans, or a fantastic introduction for new readers.
