Perrault collected this story and it was published in France in 1697. Iona and Peter Opie (‘The Classic Fairy Tales,’ Oxford University Press, 1974) mention two earlier Italian versions, but Perrault’s tale is the best known. Puss-in-Boots’ traditional costume (cavalier-style boots and large plummed hat) places the story in mid-17th century. Set in France, circa 1650. Purple level titles introduce a variety of topics to promote reading for pleasure and offer plenty of opportunities to look at rhyme and rhythm within words to build fluency and phrasing. Available for Levels 15–24, PM Traditional Tales and Plays retell classic tales in a simplified language and form that children can understand. Teachers use the tales in guided reading sessions and children can later read them with confidence and understanding. Parts are colour-coded for easy recognition.

We love Pig (we can’t help it), but Pig loves Farmer, and he can’t help it either. After all, Farmer gives Pig yummy slops and special back scratches, and calls him Sausage and seems to love him more, the fatter he gets. Just as well Pig doesn’t speak any Farmer.

But Pig won’t just sit there and weep (though we may do, on his behalf), because there’s help from an unexpected quarter: the Evil Chickens have a plan…
