Once upon a time, there was a mischievous, very smart Puss who really wanted a beautiful embroidered dress and a pair of boots. Finally, he talked his master Jake into getting them for him. But who was going to make that finery? A skilled tailor and a master shoemaker, that’s who!
On their way to the pretty princess Amalie, Jake and the Puss meet a great many other craftsmen from the castle and bourg, learning a lot of interesting stuff. How did people used to make clothes and shoes back then, anyway? What did it look at the miller’s, blacksmith’s, or carpenter’s? And who was involved in putting delicacies on the king’s table? This well-known children’s story will take you on a journey through the world of old crafts, many of which have survived to this day.
