The Adventures of Puss in Boots

PUSS had made a great discovery in the garret. It seems strange that he should have found something more important than a rat or mouse, but he had.

Anyhow, the news offered the best of excuses for gossip. And many of the field- and forest-people repeated it so often that they almost began to believe it themselves. All but old Mr. Crow.
