She was the ugliest duck he'd ever seen, purplish black with splotches of white on her wings, red wart skin around the neck, a pink bill. Her eyes were bright black dots. She was lopsided and lurched as she walked from the barn to her bathing place. (from the first line)
The Newbery Honor-winning story of a legendary cat and his extraordinary descendant is now available on audio. Unabridged. 3 CDs.
From the Publisher:
Refusing to take special classes in order to learn how to read, orphan Ben is given guidance by Whittington, a magical cat that lives in his grandmother's barn, who helps him appreciate the importance of such a skill through gentle persuasion and the telling of his great stories. A Newbery Honor Book. Book available.
Annotation:
A quiet barn filled with animals no one else wants and a troubled young boy with dyslexia converge in this unusual, candid, and wonderfully written middle-grade novel that is also a 2006 Newbery Honor Book. Though Bernie, a tender old man, owns the barn, the true leader is the Lady, a black duck who rules over the socialist chickens, two placid horses, a bunch of nasty rats, and Whittington, a tough gray tabby who is a masterly storyteller. Bernie's grandchildren, Abby and Ben, begin attending Whittington's story hour, and soon the animals decide to help Ben with his reading. As the seasons pass, new animals join the group, and Ben learns to read while Whittington spins a fascinating medieval tale that holds everyone spellbound. Accompanied by B&W line drawings.
