The Tale Of Kitty In Boots




Meet Kitty in Boots! A brand new original tale by Beatrix Potter and illustrated by the world-renowned Quentin Blake. Now in classic small edition to match the other Tales.

"A serious, well-behaved young black cat, who leads a daring double life defeating vile villains."
When Miss Kitty sneaks out to go hunting in her beautiful boots, she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes, but on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all - Mr. Tod! This utterly entertaining tale is filled with mistaken identities, devious villains and even an appearance from Peter Rabbit. Told with Beatrix Potter's trademark dry humour and wry observations, this brilliant tale is sure to become as popular as her original classics and is illustrated by the best-loved Quentin Blake.

Other titles are The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Tom Kitten, The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck, The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin (designer editions).

About the Author

Beatrix Potter

Beatrix has created some of the best-loved characters in children's literature.
Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District. She started her career as children's author and illustrator in 1901 when she was thirty-five. In the years before the First World War, demand for her work was so great that she was publishing an average of two new stories a year. As she became financially independent, she was able to buy some land in the Lake District and in 1913, on her marriage to solicitor William Heelis, she moved to live there permanently. For the last thirty years of her life, writing and illustrating gave place to a second career as a sheep farmer and countryside conservationist.
Her little books never lost their popularity however and today they sell in their millions, translated into numerous languages, and the pleasures of those timeless tales continue to be enjoyed by children all over the world.
