A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This favorite old tale is beautifully interpreted in John S. Goodall's lovely watercolor paintings that catch to perfection the adventures of swashbuckling Push and his young master as they travel through the countryside seeking their fortune. Half-pages used between each double page spread provide a wealth ofsurprises as each one is turned.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-- This wordless retelling of the popular tale follows the familiar pattern of Perrault's version. Wily Puss, with his red boots, gallant hat, and sack slung over his shoulder, furthers his poor young master's cause by trapping game as a gift for the king, finagling a princely suit of clothes to woo the princess, persuading peasants to claim (falsely) his master as landowner, and defeating an ogre to gain possession of his castle, all in the apocryphal name of the Marquis of Carabas. Impressionistic watercolors carry the sweep of the story's gestures and of the countryside over double pages, while trademark halfpages alter each separate scene. Understanding this tale depends on close attention to the relatedness of events, motives, and responses; here, there are visual gaps that do not fully account for the story's unfolding. This means that children looking at the book require either a prior knowledge of the story or someone to intervene. The intervenor must either have memorized the story, or interrupt it by flipping back and forth to the identifying lines of text placed at the front of the book. Vibrant pictures, but an awkward telling. --Karen Litton, London Public Libraries, Ontario, Canada
