Notable Book
Description
(A Newbery Honor Book) In the barn of a tenderhearted farmer, filled with otherwise unwanted animals—two retired racehorses, an overly enthusiastic rooster, some banty hens, and a Muscovy duck with clipped wings, called the Lady—a bedraggled tomcat who calls himself Whittington volunteers his services as a rat catcher and storyteller. Through a long winter, in Alan Armstrong's book for readers 9 to 13, the cat spins tales of the 14th century and his illustrious ancestor for the other animals and for the farmer's grandchildren.

"Graceful prose, engaging human and animal characters, and a deft interweaving of three story lines make this book worthy of comparison to the work of Dick King-Smith and E.B. White.... Whittington reads aloud beautifully, and the extended happy ending will leave everyone smiling in delight."—School Library Journal (starred review)
