Puss

-in-

Boots

stopped

at

a

field.

He

put

a

carrot

in

the

bag

and

placed

the

bag

on

the

ground.

He

waited

until

a

rabbit

hopped

into

the

bag,

and

then

he

pulled

the

string

tight.

Puss

-in-

Boots

knew

that

the

king

liked

rabbit

stew.

Off

he

went

to

the

kings

palace.

“This

is

a

present

from

my

master,

the

Marquis

of

Carabas,”

said

Puss

-in-

Boots,

bowing

low

to

the

king.

The

king

was

very

pleased

with

the

present.

Every

day,

Puss

-in-

Boots

took

more

presents

to

the

king,

saying

that

they

too

were

from

his

master,

the

Marquis

of

Carabas.
