When a poor miller dies, he has nothing to leave his son but a cat—but, fortunately, it’s a very smart cat.  With just a pair of boots, a feathered hat, and a cloth bag, the wily Puss changes his master’s luck, transforming him from a peasant into a prince.

John Cech and Bernhard Oberdieck, who created the critically acclaimed Classic Fairy Collection’s version of The Princess and the Pea, have teamed up once again to present a clever and enchanting retelling of one of the oldest fairy tales of all.
