    Good, but a Newbery Honor?

    If you enjoy a light, cute story, then Whittington by Alan Armstrong is a book that you will want to check out. The story is interwoven between the legendary relationship of Dick Whittington and his cat and a present day young boy who struggles with reading. As he becomes more and more frustrated by his reading struggles, Whittington the cat both inspires him and distracts him from his problems by telling him of Dick Whittington¿s and his cat¿s adventures. This is an adorable, inspiring story, but is a bit predictable. I had a hard time accepting the fact that is was nominated for a Newbery Award. While this was a good book, I do not feel that it was worthy of the Newbery Honor. Nevertheless, if you need something quick and easy, Whittington may be the story you have been waiting for.

    A Real Story Whithin a Story! (literally)

    Whittington is a story that takes you not only to the 21st century, but also the middle of the 12th century! A tale of a cat from the past and the present. Even though the stories are centuries away from each other, they will last a lifetime.
