Magic footwear, a flair for fraudulence and fantastic tomfoolery characterize any version of this 300-year-old tale involving the reversal of humble origins. From the compelling full-color book jacket image of the debonair hero to the final page showing a formal, framed painting of the famous feline, this new version of the Perrault tale about a miller and his cat is fresh and full of surprises. Unique perspectives and visual patterns contribute to the dynamic beauty of an edition with unusual typography, page layout and design. Honor Book, 1990 CCBC Caldecott Book Discussion. (Ages 4-8)
