Puss in Boots Puss in Boots "Master Cat; or, The Booted Cat" (Italian: Il gatto con gli stivali; French: Le Maître Chat, ou Le Chat Botté), commonly known in English as "Puss in Boots", is a European literary fairy tale about a cat who uses trickery and deceit to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low-born master. The oldest record of written history dates from Italian author Giovanni Francesco Straparola, who included it in his The Facetious Nights of Straparola (c. 1550-53) in XIV-XV. The tale was written at the close of the seventeenth century by Charles Perrault (1628–1703), a retired civil servant and member of the Académie française.[1] Another version was published in 1634 by Giambattista Basile with the title Cagliuso.
