The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots

About the Book

Written in 1914 by Beatrix Potter, THE TALE OF KITTY-IN-BOOTS will be published just in time for the author's would-be 150th birthday.

When one serious, well-behaved young black cat named Miss Catherine St. Quintin — or Kitty for short — decides to go a-hunting, she gets much more of an adventure than she had anticipated. In a tale dotted with familiar faces from Beatrix Potter's other classic tales such as Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Mr. Tod, Miss Kitty quickly finds that hunting is dangerous as she goes from predator to prey.

Author Bio

Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1866 at No 2, Bolton Gardens, Kensington, London. She loved nature and drawing as a child. In 1893, Beatrix sat down to write a picture letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of her ex-governess, all about a naughty rabbit called Peter. Noel was ill in bed and so Beatrix wrote to him: "My dear Noel, I don't know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits...." And that's how The Tale of Peter Rabbit was created. It wasn't until 1902 that Frederick Warne published what would become one of the most beloved stories in children's books.
