Puss in Boots – Bedtime Short Story for Kids
Once upon a time, there lived a miller. He was poor and had three sons.
Before he died, he gave his mill to the eldest son, a donkey to the second, and a cat to the youngest. The youngest son cried on his misfortune.
“Master, please don’t cry! Just lend me a pair of boots. I will make you happy and rich,” the cat said. The youngest son decided to believe the cat and gave him a pair of boots.
The cat jumped into the boots and ran into the forest. He hunted rabbits and took them to the King.
“Your Majesty, please accept this small gift from my master, the Marquis of Carabas,” said the cat. The King was delighted. The cat continued to bring gifts for some days.
The cat heard that the King was planning to drive in the carriage with his daughter along the riverside. So, the cat asked his master to go to the river and bathe. The youngest son took his clothes off and went into the river.
Just then, the King’s coach approached the riverside. The cat shouted, “HELP! HELP! My lord, someone took his clothes and left him in the river.”
The King, who heard the cry, stooped the carriage and asked his men to get him a new dress and help him out of the river. The King offered him a ride. The cat was pleased as his plan had succeeded.
