The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots

Beatrix Potter; Illustrated by Quentin Blake; Narrated by Helen Mirren


From the creator of Peter Rabbit comes the tale of a serious, well-behaved young black cat, who leads a daring double life defeating vile villains.

Beatrix Potter created some of the world's most beloved characters, and they will be coming to life in a movie slated for Spring 2018. And this book, written in 1941 but never illustrated, introduces the charming Kitty-in-Boots, who has been imagined by Quentin Blake.

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.
