Dick Whittington

by Gill Morrell published August 2106

 

Suitable for All Groups

Price: 6.00

A fresh version of the classic adventure story with the added ingredients of comedy and spectacle.

 

Dick, accompanied by his new friend Tiddles the cat, and encouraged by Fairy Bowbell, journeys to London, not realising that King Rat and his Ratlets intend to use him as a way of getting enough money to be able to conquer the world. The shop manageress, Dame Sarah, gives Dick a job at Alderman Fitwarren's Emporium of Delights. He and Alice Fitzwarren immediately fall in love, to the dismay of Idle Jack who also loves Alice. Jack and Tiddles have to guard the payroll overnight, but King Rat and the Ratlets sneak in and steal it. Jack starts back home, but the Fairy tells him to return, as one day he will be Lord Mayor of London. Meanwhile, Alderman Fitzwarren has a massive order from the Sultan of Morocco for cereals, so everyone boards a ship, including Dick, Tiddles and the Rats as stowaways. There is a terrific storm, everyone is cast overboard, and when they reach the shores of Morocco, the good characters are reunited just before they are arrested by the Sultan's guards. Their fate as slaves and harem girls is, however, prevented when the Rats infest the palace but are driven off by Tiddles. The Sultan sets them all free and rewards Dick handsomely and they all return to London, where Dick is made Lord Mayor.
