P is for Puss in Boots #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of characters. On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting, Wednesday – quotes, and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will focus on characteristics. On the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about characters from movies, TVs or books.

PToday the letter is P for Puss in Boots.  The story began as a 1697 Italian-French fairy tale of “Master Cat” or “The Booted Cat.” It is more commonly known in English as Puss in Boots. Puss in Boots is 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.
Of course, more known to children today would be the Puss in Boots (voiced by Antonio Banderas) from the Shrek series of movies or his own titled movie from 2011. This Puss in Boots is cunning as the original but the storylines have no similarities.
