Once upon a time …there was a very clever cat, whose wit and cunning gained him not only land and a castle, but also the hand of a beautiful princess.
Hans was the poor son of a miller. When his father died, Hans wasn’t bequeathed a mill or a mule like his brothers; all he inherited was a cat. Bemoaning his fate, Hans was thinking of skinning the cat for its fur. But then he had a big surprise. Not only could the cat talk – he even asked for a pair of boots and a large sack. And he promised Hans that he would bring him good fortune! How did Puss in Boots manage all this? Come along and find out!
