Mercury, would like to present another feline-themed picture book for your edification. The book in question concerns an orange tabby (not properly silver, but one can't have everything) and is based on a tale that is some centuries old.
I refer, of course, to PUSS IN BOOTS, by Charles Perrault, translated by Malcolm Arthur, and exquisitely illustrated by Fred Marcellino. Originally published in 1990, the book won a Caldecott Honor medal in 1991, and is now available in paperback from Square Fish.
The story concerns the third son of a recently-deceased miller who is at first disappointed that his share of the inheritance is the eponymous cat. Indeed, the miller's son at first wants to eat the cat and make a muff out of his fur.
The son, however, is wise enough to listen to Puss and buys him a pair of boots. I, Mercury, confess I do not understand this. Human garments are useful to cats only as makeshift bedding (See above photo), and their footwear not at all. But I digress.
Through the ingenuity of Puss, the miller's son eventually comes to marry a princess and inherit a vast estate. Oh, there are also ogres and much feasting and other hijinks.
Enjoy. And, remember, cats are not to be trifled with.
