My sister Danyda is performing the story Dick Whittington on the latest episode of the Story Story Podcast!
This is the classic version of the story, which might not be super-familiar to Americans, but it is pretty well-known in England. Dick Whittington was a real person who became Lord Mayor of London in the 15th century.
There are a few different versions, though. For example, everyone in my family can tell you that the moral of the story (per my Grandpa) is Never go out without your cat!
