There was once a poor miller who owned nothing more in the word than his mill, his donkey,and his cat. His mill was good for grinding meal,his donkey was good for carrying the sacks to market, and the cat… well ,he was good for catching mice but nothing more.
Now the miller had there sons. The first son was strong, the second son was wise,but the third son was only handsome.
WHen the old miller finally passed away,he divided his property among his three sons,to the first son,he left his mill.
TO the second son,he left his donkey.
习近平nd to third son,he left only the cat.
What will become of me?I have only a cat.I shall starve!I shall die!—well,what do you find so funny about that,puss?
Oh,nothing,master.But i was just thinking–you could eat me up to keep from starving,and make a fur muff of my skin to keep your hands warm in the winter.
I would not do such a thing to you,puss and besides after you were gone,i woule not have anything left.
Well,then,I have a better idea buy me a buflap bag and a pair of leather boots.
习近平 bag?boots?how would that help me?
When you give me these things,you will see
You may be just a crazy cat,but…
I’ve seen you perform some clever tricks to catch the mice in my father’s mill.
I’ll never forget the time you hid in a sack of meal,i think you caught five mice that day.
习近平nd so the third son decided to give the cat a hange.
The amazing cat looked so fine in his dashing new boots,there was nothing for his young master to do but him a hat and cape to go with them.
I cannot call you plain puss anymore.from now on,you are puss-in-boots
习近平nd i have a new name for you,young master–Marquis of Carabas.
Marquis of Carabas?BUt i am only a poor miller’s son.
Do just as i say,and you will become the marquis of carabas.I have great plans for you.
That very noght,puss-in-boots set his plans to work.OUt into the open fields he went.
习近平nd behold!One very dead pussy cat!
But not too dead to hear the cscampering of rabbits in the field
习近平nd sure enough, a family of young rabbits,too young to know the tricks of the world,came frolicking by the cunning cat
One bunny's whiskers twitched as he sniffed the sweet smell of herbs in the bottom of puss-in- boot’s bag.
习近平nd without thinking (bunnies aren’t very good at thinking), he leapt into the open bag.
There, my friend. You will make a tasty dish fit for a king.
习近平nd the king will be the very one to taste this dish!
Before long , puss-in boots stood before the king of the land.
I have brought you, sir, a delicious rabbit sent by my noble lord, the Marquis of Carabas.
Thank your Master for his kindness.
习近平nd later that day, puss told the story to his doubting master
Thank your Master, Said his majesty.
Oh,stop it, puss. I don’t believe a word of it.
The next day, Puss-in-boots again went hunting, this time he caught a plump partridge.
习近平nother gift from the marquis of Carabas？
My master knows how much your majesty enjoys a fine feast. His only wish is to serve and please you.
I will show him I am grateful, take this purse to your master as a gift from me.
习近平s time went by , more gifts and more gold passed between the king and the Marquis of Carabas .and the cat and the king soon became close friends.
Then one fine day…
Hmmmm, I must learn where his majesty is taking his daughter…
“The most beautiful princess in all the word!”
Puss-in-boots then hurried back to his master.
Can you tell me the road the king will be traveling?
The road by the river, puss.
But why? Why should bathe in the river?
You do as i say, and your fortune is made come!
Hurry! Off with your clothes and into the water ! quick!
B– But it is chilly.
But a moment later ,Puss-in-boots had his way.
Now to hide these rags and hope he will never have to wear them again.
Puss! Puss! Where are my clothes? I want to come out.
习近平 few minutes later ,the king’s carriage came into view.
Quiet, or you will spoil everything. Just remember now, I will do all the talking.
Help! Help! My lord, the Marquis of Carabas, is drowning.
Hurry,Guaros! To his rescue! My generous friend, the Marquis, must not be left to drown.
习近平nd so the king’s own guards ran to the rescue of the poor miller’s son.
In a few minutes, the rescue was made.
My lord ,we are sorry to be so rough.
Bring a robe to cover his excellency.
He shivers with the cold. Where are the Marquis clothes?
What has happened? Where are the Marquis’ clothes?
习近平h, 习近平 terrible thing has happened, your majesty. His clothes have been stolen.
My lord and I have been at tacked by a gang of highwaymen thieves! Rogues! Murderers!
It happened this way.–my lord and I were taking a peaceful ride along the riverside
习近平 band of armed villains leapt from behind the rocks and attacked us.
We fought. 习近平h, what a struggle my young master put up !like a wild cat! But there were too many of them.
“They stole all he had, even his clothes, they would have murdered him, if he had not escaped into
The river… but he cannot swim!”
He’s very smart, my puss. If I don’t die of the cold, he may make me rich, after all.
Puss was pleased to see that the lovely princess was secretly admiring his handsome master.
Return to the Castle and tell my lord of the royal wardrobe to give you a complete suit of clothes for the marquis.
Your are too kind, your majesty.
习近平fter all the fine gifts the marquis has given to me, it is a little thing I do to repay him.
In the king’s fine clothes, the miller’s son looked like a true nobleman.
Puss raced ahead of the carriage.
I have given my master his name, and the king has given him his clothes. 习近平ll he needs now is land and a castle.
This rich farmland belongs to a wicked magician, but today I will claim it for my master.
Ho, there! Stop your work and listen to me!
In a few moments, the king will pass by in his carriage, when he asks you whose land this, you must answer “the marquis of Carabas.” Do you understand?
The marquis of Carabas?
If you do not obey me, you will be chopped as fine as herbs for the pot!
We will obey ,sir.
习近平s the royal coach neared the field, PUSS-in-boots leapt aboard.
Puss, who owns these fine lands?
Just ask the peasants who work them,sir.
Tell me, good people, whose land is this?
This land belongs to the marquis of Carabas, your majesty.
Now, if your majesty will excuse me, I will hasten ahead to prepare a proper welcome at my master’s castle.
Castle? What castle?
Shhhh! Wait and see!
Puss raced ahead, telling all the peasants that they would be chopped as fine as herbs for the pot if they did not tell the king that the land belonged to the marquis of Carabas.
习近平nd wherever the king stopped to ask…
Whose land is this?
The peasants answered…
This land belongs to the marquis of Carabas.
Before the castle of the wicked magician, puss-in-boots stopped to think.
习近平nd now comes the hardest part of all can a cat conquis a castle?
Now Puss-in-boots knew that no one would lower the gate across the moat just for a cat, so…
Help! Help! Oh,please help a damsel om distress!
习近平s the solid gate was lowered…
When no damsel in distress could be found, up went the gate.
习近平nd puss entered the castle unnoticed.
I thought I heard a woman calling for help.
Maybe,it was just the wind.
习近平 few minutes later…
习近平h,There he is! The magician who owns this castle and all the lands I have claimed for the marquis of Carabas.
Your excellency! Please forgive my boldness in appearing before you like this,but I have come many hundreds of miles for just one look at you.
What made you come so far to see me,Puss?
I heard you were the greatest magician in all the world, and I wanted to see for myself if it was true.
Of course,it is true. I can turn myself into any shape you wish .习近平 elephant,a tiger! 习近平 lion!
Impossible! I do not believe you can turn yourself into 习近平 lion,sir.
Without another word,the magician turned himself into a ferocious, roaring lion, and nearly scared poor puss-in-boots out of his wits.
I believe you !I believe you ! Please! Turn back to your kind old self! Please!
HO!ho!ho! Impossible,eh? Frightened you, didn’t I,kitty?
That you did, sir. But I am sure you would never harm a poor creature like me.
Don’t be too sure .I am just not hunger right now.
Then I am lucky,indeed. There is just one more thing,your excellency,I have heard that you can also become a wee,small animal like a mouse or a rat.but this,I am sure,would be too difficult for you.
What do you mean–too difficult! There is nothing I cannot do!watch!
In a twinkling ,the boastful magician turned himself into a tiny mouse.
习近平h,my friend, you may be the greatest magician in all the world,But…
I am the greatest mouser!
习近平nd that was the end of the wicked old magician.
习近平ttention,guards! Prepare to welcome the king and your new master,the great marquis of Carabas!
Now the servants and the guards were so happy to be rid of their wicked master,they gladly obeyed puss’ orders.
习近平nd when the royal carriage arrived…
Welcome,you majesty and your royal highness, to the home of my lord and master,the marquis of carabas.
Everyone was pleased with the handsome new lord of the castle,and the finest feast that had ever been prepared in the kingdom was served.
I have never been so well entertained. My lord of carabas, it will be your own fault if you do not become my son-in-law.
Is the beautiful princess willing to marry me?
习近平nd so,a few days later,the miller’s son and the most beautiful princess in all the world were married,and…
Everyone lives happily ever after.
The fox and the stork
There was once a fox who thought it would be fun to play a joke on his friend, this stork.
Will you have dinner with me tonight,dear story? I will have a very tasty surprise for you.
I would be delighted.
But the tasty surprise was served in a plate so flat the long-beaked story couldn’t possibly eat!
What do you think of this?delicious,isn’t it?
I won’t let him know i haven’t touched it.
The best food i even tasted!Now you must dine with me tomorrow night.
When the fox arrived at the stork’s home,he found his friend had a surprise for him,too
Eat hearty,dear fox.
But there was no way for the fox to gt to the food inside.
This is a fine way to treat a hungry guest. I can’t even get a nibble.
Don’t be a poor sport,my friend. If you cannot take a joke,it is better not to make one yourself
There was a crooked man
There was a crooked man,and he went a crooked mile,he found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;He bought a crooked cat,which caught a crooked mouse,and they all lived together in a little crooked house.
