Puss in Boots Once upon a time there was a man living in a mill (moinho) and he had three sons. After dying, he divided his special things among his three sons. The first one received the mill, because he had a wife and sons. The second one had a donkey, because he had a wife too. The youngest son received only a simple cat.
Puss in Boots The first and the second sons lived very happy with the father’s presents. But the third lived in poverty(pobreza), just with a cat. The cat listened tohis master’s(do dono)words and answered him: • You have me and*I’ll make you a rich and respected man. *I´ll make you – Vou fazer de ti
Puss in Boots The cat put on(calçou)a pair of boots, put on(vestiu)a coat, sling a knapsack on his back(pôs a mochila às costas)and, holding(agarrou)a hat in his hand he left home and went hunting(caçar), but he was thinking about a plan(pensando num plano)to help his master. He saw a big rabbit and decided to catch it. He put the rabbit in the bag and went to the King’s Palace.
Puss in Boots The cat showed (mostrou) the rabbit tothe King and said: • King, my master sent you this rabbit. • May I know, who is your master? – asked the King. • My master is the Marquis of Carabas. – answered immediately the puss in boots. • Very well, now go home and thank your master. – ordered the monarch.
Puss in Boots Sometimes the cat visited the King and took some offers from his master. Finally, it had the King’s confidence (confiança) and said to his master: • Your poverty problems’ are solved. Then he told his master about the offers made to the King. One day the King invited them to the palace. The boy was worried (preocupado), because he didn’t have any pretty clothes. The cat had a plan…
Puss in Boots The Master went to the river with no clothes on. The King went by the river and the cat called him and said: • Help, help! My master, the Marquis of Carabas is drowning (afogar-se) ! The cat said: • Your magesty, my master was taking a bath and the villains (vilões) robbed his clothes! Immediately the King ordered his servants to dress the young boy with pretty clothes.
Puss in Boots The cat said to everyone: • These lands (terras) are of the Marquis of Carabas. The cat saw the big castle and went it. There lived a vain (vaidoso) giant magician. Puss in boots didn’t believed in the giant’s magic powers. But it was true. The giant transformed him self into a lion and into a mouse. Then, the cat ate the mouse. It ran out telling everybody that the new owner (dono) of the castle was the Marquis of Carabas.
Puss in Boots The Marquis of Carabas married with the King’s daughter. They lived happilly ever after!
