A brilliantly original picture book for older children by two of the best talents in children's books, Ian Beck and Philip Pullman.

An action-packed story in which Puss helps his master, Jacques, to find happiness and fortune, and in the meantime, lays to rest sleepless ghouls, cures a hermit's aches and foils the nasty Ogre.

A glorious re-telling of a favourite tale, based on a script Philip Pullman wrote for a successful production at the Polka Children's Theatre. Illustrated with characteristic humour and aplomb by Ian Beck's pen-and-ink with watercolour artwork, peppered with amusing speech bubbles.
