Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Perrault's clever Puss is back, but unlike last year's retelling (Farrar, 1990) by Malcolm Arthur, with Caldecott Honor illustrations by Fred Marcellino, there's nothing in Haley's version to get excited about. Her text, while following Perrault's story line fairly well, descends once too often into too-cute dialogue ("Oh Great and Terrible Wizardness," Puss says to an ogre named Moustaphus) and has a gratuitously tagged-on footnote concerning "The Paw Law," created by the old King out of gratitude to Puss. Haley's illustrations are the real disappointment, though; they are garishly colored and inconsistent in execution. Too often they have a rough, unfinished look that is both disconcerting and unsatisfying. Libraries needing additional copies of this tale would do well to purchase more of Arthur and Marcellino's stunning book. --Linda Boyles, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL

From Kirkus Reviews

Still another ``Puss,'' this one by a Caldecott winner whose free retelling is full of energy and humor and whose vibrant illustrations, appropriately set in 17th-century France, are-- like the original story--a witty blend of satire and romance. Livelier but less formal and less elegant than Marcellino's 1991 Caldecott Honor book; here's a chance for the kids to make constructive comparisons.
