Dick Whittington
Once upon a time, there was a poor orphan boy called Dick Whittington. The people in his village believed that
the streets of London were paved with gold. So Dick decided to travel there and become a rich man. Dick walked
for many days, but when he arrived in London there were no streets of gold! Tired and hungry, he fell asleep on
the steps of a great house. The house belonged to a rich businessman who found Dick and gave him a job
cleaning the kitchen. Dick worked very hard and was happy. He had enough to eat and at night he could sleep
by the fire. There was a problem though! At night, rats ran around the kitchen and kept him awake. So Dick
went out and found the fastest rat-catching cat in London! The cat caught all the rats that came into the house
and Dick could sleep at night. The businessman heard about the amazing cat and asked Dick if he could take it
on his ship to catch rats on his next journey. Dick agreed, but was very sad to see the cat go. While the
businessman was away, the other servants were very mean to Dick, so Dick decided to run away. But as he was
leaving, one of the great church bells rang. It seemed to say, ‘Turn back, Dick Whittington, Mayor of London!’ So
Dick came back to the house and soon the businessman returned. He was very happy because Dick’s cat had
caught all the rats on the ship. He gave Dick a reward and promoted him to his assistant. Dick worked hard for
the businessman and learned everything he could. Eventually he married the businessman’s daughter and
started a very successful business of his own. And, yes, he did become Mayor of London
