In

the

meantime,

Puss

-in-

Boots

had

raced

on.

He

reached

a

huge

castle

which

was

the

home

of

a

cruel

giant.

“I

have

been

told

that

you

can

turn

yourself

into

any

animal

you

wish,

said

Puss

-in-

Boots

to

the

giant.

“Just

watch

me!

roared

the

giant,

and

he

turned

himself

into

a

fierce

lion.

“That

is

amazing!

said

Puss

-in-

Boots,

who

was

shaking

with

fear.
