Synopsis

Dick Whittington by Clare Gifford

The classic tale of Dick Whittington. This charming book tells the legendary story of Dick's poor beginnings and his rise to wealth thanks to a very clever cat. It also includes the true story of Richard Whittington, a merchant philanthropist, who was Lord Mayor of London three times in the 15th century. Delightfully written and stunningly illustrated in full colour, this is a classic London story. This book is sold in aid of the Lord Mayor's Appeal.

Reviews

An excellent balance of good illustration and writing. * Irish Examiner *
