About the Author
CHARLES PERRAULT (1628-1703) is considered the original creator of the fairy tale, having written such classics as Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.FRED MARCELLINO (1939-2001) began his career in illustration with A Rat's Tale (available from Farrar Straus Giroux). Puss in Boots was his first full-color picture book and a Caldecott Honor winner. He continued to win awards and receive critical acclaim for his children's books until his death in 2001.
"This picturebook provides a fitting showcase for Perrault's artful tale of deceit and recourcefulness. Befitting a fairy tale, the artwork inside is suffused with a golden light that proclaims the story to be from a sunnier, more dreamlike world." --Booklist, Starred Review
"Large and strikingly original illustrations embellish a straight-forward retelling of the famous story. . . . The pictures are filled with sly details . . . A noteworthy edition . . . splendid for reading aloud." --The Horn Book, Starred Review
"The artist's luxurious and skillfully designed paintings startle in their complexity and beauty. . . . This version of Perrault's classic story is brilliantly conceived and executed." --Publishers Weekly, Boxed Review
