Whether it's a piano-playing cat, a surprised cat, or one that's just plain adorable, some of the most-watched online videos these days feature funny felines. And it doesn't end there; cats are ubiquitous on the Internet, inspiring meme after meme, speaking their own language, and even prompting the launch of a new film festival. But the omnipresence of the cat in pop culture is not novel. Feline references date from before 2000 BC in ancient Egypt, and since the introduction of cats to Western households they have inspired writers and artists--from the scribe of the Lindisfarne Gospels to poets of the present day. Puss in Books is a celebration of feline wit, intelligence, aloofness, and charm as presented through cats in books, with examples from literature, folklore, and popular culture. Among the selections included in this gorgeous volume are nursery rhymes ("Hey Diddle Diddle"and "Ding Dong Bell"); poetry by Thomas Gray ("Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes") and T. S. Eliot (Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats); cats in fiction by Rudyard Kipling, Lewis Carroll, and Charles Dickens; and contemporary feline characters such as Splat the Cat and, of course, the ubiquitous Puss in Boots himself. Wonderfully illustrated in color throughout, Puss in Books is an ideal gift for every cat lover.

Puss in Boots is a children’s fairy-tale that is as old as time. It was first written by the French fabulist, Charles Perrault; it is the story about the third and youngest son of a miller who receives two boots as his inheritance—and that son is, strangely, a cat. Determined to make his master a fortune, the cat bags a rabbit and gives it to the king as a gift from his master. The cat continues to make games and present the king with gifts throughout the whole story. This version was written by German playwright Ludwig Tieck in 1797. Some scholars say that this German adaptation was a precursor of the Theatre of the Absurd. It contains some annotations.

One day, the miller died.

The three sons decided to divide their father’s property. A mill, a donkey, and a cat were all that was left. “I’ll take the mill because I’m the eldest,” the first son said. “Then I’ll take the donkey,” the second son said. So the youngest son took the cat. The youngest son sighed.
