 Still another ``Puss,'' this one by a Caldecott winner whose free retelling is full of energy and humor and whose vibrant illustrations, appropriately set in 17th-century France, are-- like the original story--a witty blend of satire and romance. Livelier but less formal and less elegant than Marcellino's 1991 Caldecott Honor book; here's a chance for the kids to make constructive comparisons. (Folklore/Picture book. 4-8)
