A Mother Goose classic is retold with a Polynesian theme. A cat is shipwrecked on a mice-infested island, but this is one talking feline with a taste for twisting the truth, not rodents. He talks his new owner into making him a pair of boots in return for fame and fortune. When the owner's father dies, he leaves the plantation to the older brother and the crop to the middle brother, while the youngest brother gets Puss. Puss, ever the player, connives, manipulates, and flat-out lies to a neighboring island king and princess to get his owner noticed. But when the owner finds out about all the untruths, he sets the record straight, much to the dismay of Puss. The king and his daughter appreciate the owner's honesty, and the owner ends up engaged to the princess, proving that honesty is the best policy. Peppered with modern slang and humor, this version of Puss in Boots is very entertaining. Narrated by Robert Guillaume and starring David Hyde-Pierce as Puss, this HBO production is good for children 3 and older, but is one the whole family will enjoy. --Peggy Maltby-Etra
