But one egg was bigger than the rest, and it didn’t hatch. Mother Duck couldn’t recall laying that seventh egg. How did it get there? TOCK! TOCK! The little prisoner was pecking inside his shell.

There was once a miller who had three sons, and when he died his estate was divided among them. The older sons fared very well, but the youngest received nothing but the cat, and he often complained bitterly of his lot.
The cat, who had heard this, came out of the cupboard where he had been listening.”
“Do not worry,my good master,” he said. “You have only to give me a bag and have a pair of boots made for me, and you shall see that your portion is not so bad as you imagine it to be.”
The cat’s master obtained both bag and boots, and watched the cat pull on the boots and throw the bag over his shoulder. Then Puss in Boots sallied forth.
