Reading this classic and interesting tale about a very poor boy who becomes rich and serves as Mayor of London three times was a pleasure. My favourite character was Dick Whittington because of his presence of mind, honesty and diligence. I would suggest this lovely book to other kids who enjoy rags-to-riches tales. Enjoyable to read. It was really interesting to know in the end that how much wealth cat would bring in Dick Whittington’s life that changed his fortune. He became rich and successful just because of his hard work.
