Rapunzel | Puss In Boots | Compilation – Best Fairy Tales Collection for Children


Rapunzel There was once a couple who longed for a child,
and finally they were expecting a baby. We are going to have a baby dear, now why
are you looking so sad? I am not sad, I just want to have some of
that lovely lettuce growing in that garden. Oh no! Don’t you know that that garden belongs
to the evil witch? I know, I know, but I just can’t get my
mind off the lettuce, I am yearning to have it. Oh please, won’t you get me some? The husband could not bear to see his wife
like this, so decided to risk getting some lettuce for her. That night, he climbed over the wall of the
garden next door, quickly plucked some lettuce, and ran back to give it to his wife. The next day, he saw his wife again standing
looking out of the window. Now what is troubling you, my dear? Didn’t you enjoy the lettuce? I really enjoyed the lettuce darling, but
now I just have to have some more. My dear wife, you know how dangerous it can
be if the witch finds out. Ask me for anything else and I will get it
for you. But the wife could not stop yearning for the
lettuce, and finally her husband agreed to once again get some for her. Once again the man climbed into the witch’s
garden next door, but just as he was going to pluck the lettuce, a booming voice stopped
him. How dare you steal the lettuce from my garden,
you thief! Oh madam, I am so sorry. I am not a thief, but my wife is expecting
a baby and was just dying to have some of your lovely lettuce. That is no excuse for stealing! I know, I know, and I am really very sorry. But I beg you to please show some mercy. It is only because of my wife’s condition
that I came to get the lettuce. Hmmm. Well, I will let you have the lettuce and
as much more as you want, but you have to promise me something. Er, anything you say madam. When your wife has the baby, you have to give
it to me. What!! You heard me. And if you do not agree, you will pay for
it. The husband was so scared that he agreed to
the witch’s demand. When the baby was born, the young man and
his wife were very happy. However, soon the witch arrived to take away
the little baby. Oh, please have pity. We have waited so long for a child, don’t
take away our little daughter. Your husband has made a promise, and you have
to keep it. Hand over the baby, she is mine now. He he he he he. The witch picked up the baby and left the
couple heartbroken. She named the little girl Rapunzel. As time passed, Rapunzel grew up into a very
beautiful girl with long golden hair, and the witch was now worried. Rapunzel is growing up into a lovely young
lady. I should not let anyone see her, as someone
might take her away or she might run away with someone. I have to find a place where no one can get
to her. I will not let her get away from me. The witch took Rapunzel deep into the woods,
locked her up in a tall tower and closed the entrance. Oh mother, why are you locking me here? What will I do here all alone? Don’t you worry your head about that. I will visit you every day and bring you all
that you need. But mother, you have closed the entrance to
the tower, so how will you come up? When I come, I will say,
Rapunzel, Rapunzel my dear, Let down your hair,
Your mother is here. So when the witch called out, Rapunzel would
let down her long golden hair, and the witch would climb up to the tower. Time passed by, and Rapunzel turned into a
beautiful young lady of 16. She would pass her time singing in her beautiful
voice. One day, the prince of the land was out hunting, when he happened to pass near the tower where Rapunzel was locked and heard her singing. What a beautiful voice! I wonder who is singing in these deep woods? The prince kept wandering till he came to the
tower where Rapunzel was locked, but he could not find any way to get into the tower. He suddenly heard someone coming, and
quickly hid behind some bushes. Soon, he saw saw the witch approaching the
tower. She looked up and called out. Rapunzel, Rapunzel my dear,
Let down your hair, Your mother is here. The prince watched with amazed eyes as the
golden hair came down and the witch climbed up. Ah ha, so that is how one can get up the tower. The prince waited till the witch came down. After the witch had gone, he waited to make
sure there was no one else around, and changing his voice, called out. Rapunzel, Rapunzel my dear,
Let down your hair, Your mother is here. Mother just left a while ago, why is she back
so soon? I better not disobey her or she will get angry. Immediately, Rapunzel let down her long shaft
of golden hair. The prince quickly climbed up, and when he
saw the beautiful Rapunzel, he immediately fell in love with her. Er, who, who you? Please go away, my mother will be very angry
if she sees you here. Do not be afraid pretty lady. Your enchanting voice drew me here, and I
could not resist finding out who was singing in such a beautiful voice. Though at first Rapunzel was scared when she
saw a stranger climb up, she too soon fell in love with the handsome prince. Tell me my dear, why has your mother locked
you up here in the middle of the woods? My mother doesn’t want anyone to see me
and take me away from her. I am so glad you found me. Time went on, and the prince came to visit
Rapunzel more and more often, and they both started loving each other more and more. The prince now wanted to marry Rapunzel, but
he couldn’t think of a way of getting her out of the tower. My dear Rapunzel, I cannot wait to make you
my bride. When your mother comes, shall I ask for your
hand? Oh no no, you must never do that. If my mother comes to know you visit me, she
will do something terrible. Please Promise me you will never let my mother know. Alright, alright, I won’t let your mother
know. And don’t worry, I will find a way of getting
you out of here. But one day, Rapunzel made a big mistake when
the witch came to visit her. Rapunzel, Rapunzel my dear,
Let down your hair, Your mother is here. Uff! The prince climbs up in a jiffy, but you take
so long, and you are so heavy also. What prince! Er, no no, I meant… You horrible girl, what have you been up to
behind my back? I wanted to protect you from the world, but
you have backstabbed me. I will make you pay for it, I will banish
you to the desert. No, no mother, I ….
But the witch was very angry, and in a fit of fury, she cut off Rapunzel’s beautiful
hair and sent her off. She then waited for the prince, who soon made
his way to the tower. Rapunzel, Rapunel, it’s me, your prince. Let down you hair. The witch let down Rapunzel’s long hair,
and the prince quickly climbed up. My darling, I am here! So you are the one who wants to steal Rapunzel
from me! Just you wait and see what I do to you! When the prince saw the witch, he got so scared
that he lost his grip, and down, down, down he fell. He fell on some bushes so his life was saved,
but some thorns from the bushes pricked his eyes so badly that he could not see. The dejected prince didn’t know what to
do, where to find his beloved Rapunzel. He just followed his horse wherever it led
him. He survived by eating some fruit and berries
growing on the trees. Oh my darling Rapunzel, where are you? I will not stop searching till I find you,
my love. I cannot live without you. For a long time, the prince kept wandering. He went over hills and valleys and over plains,
till he finally reached the desert where Rapunzel had been sent by the wicked witch. He was so tired that he sat down to rest for
some time, and dozed off. After some time, he was suddenly awakened
by someone singing beautifully. Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Oh, this beautiful voice can belong to no
other than my Rapunzel. I can recognize her voice anywhere. The blind prince started staggering across
the desert in the direction of the voice. He was so weak that he couldn’t even shout
out his beloved’s name. But even from a distance away, Rapunzel recognized
the figure of the prince making his way towards her. She couldn’t believe her eyes! She dashed over to her prince, who collapsed
in her arms. My sweetheart, I knew you would finally find
me. Oh, I am so happy, I am so happy. Tears of joy were streaming down Rapunzel’s
cheeks, and suddenly a miracle happened. As her tears fell on the prince’s eyes,
they opened and he could see again. My love, my dear love, I have been looking
for you everywhere and have now found you. My sweet Rapunzel, your days of misery are
over. Your mother will never be able get to you
now. I cannot believe we are finally together again. Is this a dream? No sweetheart, this is no dream. You are really with me, and I shall love and
protect you always. So saying, the prince picked up Rapunzel and
put her on his horse, and they both made their way to his kingdom. The king and queen were overjoyed on seeing
their beloved son again, and happily accepted Rapunzel as their son’s bride. There was feasting and dancing and merry making
for many days as the prince wed his bride, and they together led a happy life and ruled
wisely over their kingdom. Puss In Boots Father is dead, and all he has left is the
mill and ass and puss. I know those mean brothers of mine will take
the mill and the ass and leave just puss for me. They will be able to earn a livelihood, but
what am I going to do? Puss can look after himself by catching rats
and mice, but how will I survive? Puss was very sad to see his master so depressed,
and went and gently rubbed Jack’s cheek with his paw. Do not despair, dear master. I know you think I am good for nothing, but
I promise I will change your fortune. But for that I need something. You have to buy me a pair of boots, and I
want that old bag lying in your room. Now Jack had very little money, but he also
knew that Puss was a very loyal cat, and was willing to give him a chance. Oh well, it’s not as if I have much to lose
anyway. We shall go tomorrow and buy you the boots
with the little money that I have. Master, I promise you will not regret your
decision. Jack bought puss a pair of very smart leather boots of buff leather. Puss tried them on, and indeed they fit very
well and made puss look very dashing. Now, master, see how I will change your fortune. You placed your trust in me, and I will not
let you down. puss took the old
bag lying in Jack’s room, put two carrots in it, and made his way to the warrens nearby. As he had expected, soon two curious rabbits
came sniffing up to the bag. Puss immediately pounced on them, put them
in the bag and tied the strings of the bag. He then started for the palace and asked to
be presented to the king. Greetings to Your Majesty. My master, the Marquis of Carabas sends you
his respects and a gift of these rabbits. Oh! They look like juicy little fellows. Take them to the cook and ask him to prepare
them for the evening meal. And convey my thanks to your master,
The Marquis of Carabas, your Majesty. Er, yes, yes, the Marquis of Carabas. Can’t say I’ve heard of him, though. The cooks cooked
a delicious meal, which the king and his beautiful daughter enjoyed. After a few days, puss again came to the palace,
this time with two big partridges. So, young fellow, how is your master? My master is well, your Majesty. He sends his good wishes, and a present for
you. Another present, eh? Well, well.. and what has he sent now? Your majesty, please accept these partridges
which my master, the Marquis of Carabas, has sent with his respects. Oh, nice plump ones I say. They should make a good meal. Thank your master once again, and I look forward
to meeting him sometime. The king and his daughter enjoyed the partridges,
and spoke about the generosity of the Marquis of Carabas. Puss would also take back a rabbit or a partridge
or two for Jack, besides what he took for the king. Thus, Jack and puss lived life comfortably
in their small hut, and Jack was never hungry anymore. As time passed, puss made several trips to
the palace with fine game for the king, always telling the king that it was from him master. The noblemen at the palace were also all speaking
about the Marquis of Carabas, whom none had seen or heard of, but everyone was curious
about. I think it is now time for the king to meet
my master. But how is that going to happen? My master has no fine clothes nor a carriage
to take him to the palace. I have to think of some plan. The next day when puss set off to catch some
rabbits, he saw some people talking excitedly by the road leading to the river. Curious, he walked up to the crowd to find
out what was happening, and heard the people saying that the king and his beautiful daughter
would be passing by the next day. A brilliant idea came into puss’s mind,
and he rushed home. Master, master…. Hold on, hold on, what is the matter? Master, it is time to introduce you to the
king Puss, are you out of your mind? I think you need to rest a bit… No, no, master, this is the opportunity for
us. Tomorrow the king is passing this way with
his daughter, and this is the opportunity for us. I really don’t know what you are talking
about, but I think you want us both to be killed by the king. Master, just listen to me, please. Trust me, and just do as I tell you to. Jack was not completely convinced and was
not too keen to go before the king. Puss has been very loyal to me and given me
no reason to doubt him. He has kept me well fed with all the rabbits
and partridges that he catches for me. Maybe I should trust him as he seems so confident
of himself. Oh well, I’ll go along with you, but I just
hope you know what you are doing and don’t land me and yourself in trouble. Don’t you worry, master. Your fortune is going to change, and your
days in this miserable hut are soon going to be over. The next day, puss took Jack to the river
beside which the king was supposed to pass. When he saw from afar the king’s carriage
approaching, he went to Jack. Quick, master, take off your clothes and get
into the water. What the… Are you out of your mind? Please do as I tell you master, there is no
time to be lost. I just hope you know what you are doing. Puss quickly hid Jack’s old and tattered
clothes, and went back to where Jack was standing in the cold water. As the king’s carriage came near, puss started
shouting out. Help, help! Oh, someone please help. The king looked out of the carriage window
and instantly recognized puss. Oh, your Majesty, my master had come to bathe
in the river, and some robbers have made off with his clothes. He will surely drown or freeze to death if
he is not saved. The king immediately ordered his attendants
to bring Jack out of the water, and sent a groom to the palace to bring a fine suit for
Jack. The groom soon returned with a purple and
gold suit befitting a royal person. Jack, who was a handsome lad, looked like
a prince in the new clothes. Finally we meet the Marquis of Carabas. Must say he is a handsome fellow! The king invited Jack to sit with him in the
royal carriage, where his daughter was also seated. Jack, who was a shy boy, was hesitant to do
so. Oh, do come and join us. We shall be very pleased with your company. The princess’s sweet and beckoning smile
made Jack immediately fall in love with her, and he went and sat down beside her. When puss saw his master seated with the princess,
he went and told the coachman the direction to follow, and ran ahead as fast as he could. He reached a field of corn where reapers were
busy at work, and told them. The king’s carriage is making it’s way
here. If anyone asks, you must say these fields
belong to the Marquis of Carabas. If anyone dares to disobey
me, he will be chopped to pieces. The workers were terrified of puss’s threats,
and promised to obey him. Since it was a lovely day, the king told his
coachman to go slowly so that he could enjoy the view. My, my! What a beautiful sight these fields of corn
are. Who do they belong to, I wonder? As instructed by puss, the workers all answered
that the fields belonged to the Marquis of Carabas. Puss went further ahead and instructed the
shepherds and farm workers to also say everything belonged to the Marquis of Carabas. What a fine herd of cattle. Who do they belong to? Your Majesty, these belong to the Marquis
of Carabas. I see. And these fields of golden wheat also belong
to the Marquis of Carabas? Yes your Majesty, they all belong to our noble
and kind master, the Marquis of Carabas. The king was very pleased to know that not
only was his visitor handsome and charming, but was extremely wealthy as well. Of course, Jack had no idea how puss was doing
all this, but he had fallen so much in love with the beautiful princess, that he could
think of nothing else. In the meanwhile, puss had rushed ahead to
the castle of the very, very mean ogre who not only owned a beautiful castle, but also
all the fields and cattle that puss had told everyone to say belonged to the Marquis of
Carabas. Greetings, sir. A puss in boots! He he he. Now that’s a sight I’ve never seen before. What are you doing here? I have heard so much about you sir, that I
thought I must see you. Ah, well…. Now the ogre was a very conceited and proud
fellow, and loved it when anyone praised him. Everyone seems to be talking of your great
skills. I have heard that you can change your yourself
to anything? I find that so hard to believe! Not hard at all, not hard at all. Just watch this. Suddenly, instead of the ogre, there a big,
ferocious lion sitting in front of puss. Puss leapt up with a start and darted outside
the window, clinging on for dear life. Ha ha ha ha! Frightened you, didn’t I? Now come on in. You believe in my powers now? Phew! That was a mighty scare you gave me. Okay, okay, get your breath back. Puss looks intently at the ogre. Now what? You still doubt my powers? Oh no no no sir, not at all. Then what is the matter? Err, I don’t mean to offend you, sir, but
I was just wondering about something. What is it, out with it! Sir, you are already so huge, so it wouldn’t
have been difficult for you to change into a big lion. But are you powerful enough to change into
something tiny? Like maybe a rat or mouse? I see you are still not convinced about my
powers. Well, here goes…. So saying, the ogre turned into a mouse. No sooner had he done this, puss seized the
opportunity. He pounced on him and quickly gobbled him
up. Well, mighty ogre, that is the end of you. As soon as puss ate up the ogre, the whole
castle seemed to come to life. All the people who the wicked ogre had cast
under his spell were turned back to humans. There was joy everywhere, and everyone hugged
puss for freeing them from the cruel ogre. Oh, we don’t know how to thank you. We owe our lives to you! Well, I do need something from you all. Soon the king of the land is coming this way,
and you all need to hail the Marquis of Carabas, as he is your new master. Don’t worry, he is not at all like the demon
who you were under. Your new master is a very kind and noble soul. Anything, anything for the new master. Good. Now I want you all to gather in the hall to
welcome your new master, who will be arriving with the king himself. When the king saw the castle from afar, he
wondered who the owner could be, and as they came near, he saw puss standing by the gates,
bowing low to the king. Welcome, your Majesty, to the castle of my
master, the Marquis of Carabas. My, my, this is one fine castle, even more
beautiful than my own palace. I’m sure it must be beautiful from within
also. Do come in, your Majesty, and see for yourself. Jack was totally confused, not knowing what
was happening. He looked at puss, who winked at him. Jack then realized that it was puss who had
somehow done all this, and gave a grateful smile to puss. The king was very impressed on seeing the
castle from within, as well as all the ladies and gentlemen. You are indeed a fine young man, generous
and noble. I shall be the happiest man if you would accept
my daughter to be your wife. Oh! What more could Jack have asked for? His loyal puss had made him the owner of a
wonderful castle full of treasures, and now the king himself was offering him the hand
of his daughter in marriage, who he had already fallen deeply in love with. Your Majesty, it would be an honour to make
the beautiful princess my bride. I will love her for the rest of my life. Oh, you couldn’t have made me happier. I know that after me you will rule the kingdom
justly and with great wisdom. So Jack and his princess lived happily ever
after. And puss? Oh, he was petted and pampered, had the best
of cream and other goodies. Of course, he did not give up his favourite
pastime of chasing the rats and mice, but only to keep himself entertained and exercise
his legs a bit!
