From the creator of Peter Rabbit comes the tale of a serious, well-behaved young black cat, who leads a daring double life defeating vile villains.

Beatrix Potter created some of the world's most beloved characters.  This book, written in 1941 but never illustrated, introduces the charming Kitty-in-Boots, who has been imagined by Quentin Blake.

When Miss Kitty sneaks out to go hunting in her beautiful boots she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes, but on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all—Mr. Tod! This utterly entertaining tale is filled with mistaken identities, devious villains, and even an appearance from Peter Rabbit.


Frederick Warne is delighted to present this very special tale about a rather naughty cat.

Beatrix Potter wrote The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots in 1914 but did not find time to illustrate it. Over 100 years later, Quentin Blake has brought Kitty to life with his witty and charming illustrations. At last, this wonderfully funny book can be enjoyed by children, and adults, everywhere.


"Once upon a time there was a serious, well-behaved young black cat ..."

Or so her owner thinks. What she doesn't know is that Kitty sneaks out at night to go hunting! Unfortunately, our furry friend isn't a very good hunter and she gets into all sorts of scrapes while prowling around the countryside. And on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all—Mr. Tod!

With appearances from Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, and a very familiar rabbit in a blue coat, this story is an utterly entertaining read.
