A battered tomcat shows up at a New England barn looking for a home. Calling himself Whittington because he's a direct descendant of Dick Whittington's anonymous cat, he earns his keep as a ratter and storyteller. Alan Armstrong has created a world as magical as E.B. White's barn in CHARLOTTE'S WEB. Joel Rooks brings the story alive, using his vocal talents to give every character a personality-filled voice. Whittington sounds as battered as a fighting tom, with just a hint of a purr as he recounts his story. The Lady, the queenly take-charge duck who rules the barnyard, has just the right balance of majesty and friendliness in her haughty voice. A magical story is brought to life by a vocal magician.
