The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots facts for kids
|Publisher||Frederick Warne & Co|
The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots is a British children's book written by Beatrix Potter and illustrated by Quentin Blake published in 2016. The manuscript was discovered by Jo Hanks, a publisher at Penguin Random House Children's Books, in the Victoria and Albert Museum archive in 2015.
Potter sent the manuscript to her publisher in 1914, and mentioned in letters that she intended to complete it; however, her work was interrupted by the outbreak of World War I and personal events such as her marriage and illness.
The story centres around "a well-behaved prime black Kitty cat, who leads rather a double life", and includes characters from other Potter stories, including Peter Rabbit, and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.
The book was published on 1 September 2016 (ISBN: 978-0241247594) by Frederick Warne & Co, the publisher of Potter's other works, which since 1983 has been an imprint of Penguin Group. The publication coincided with the 150th anniversary of Potter's birth.
