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.

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.
