Abstract:

Ten-year-old Abby and eight-year-old Ben live with their grandparents, Bernie and Marion, near a dilapidated New England farm with a barn that is home to a menagerie of old run-down animals. Just when the barn seems to have reached capacity, Whittington, a homeless cat, asks for admission. He looks bad, but he's a good storyteller. The story of his ancestry and how he got his name intrigues the animals. As Whittington unfolds a tale a long ago, the animals devise a plan to help Ben, who is dyslexic, deal with his reading problem. By his side are his sister, grandparents, and a reading coach, who is willing to help him over the summer. But Ben's real courage comes from hearing the legendary story of Dick Whittington and his cat, so beautifully told by Whittington, the newest resident of the barn.
