The action is set in old London town, on board the good ship Queen Camilla and on the enchanted desert island of Napoodle.  

London is well and truly infested with rodents, so when Dick Whittington and Tommy the Cat arrive in London to seek their fortune they decide to turn their hand (and paw) to pest control at Alderman Fitzwarren’s business warehouse and the little schoolroom run by his daughter, where dinner lady Sarah Stewpot torments pupils with her revolting culinary concoctions.

But with world domination on his mind, King Rat can’t risk Dick ruining his plans and frames him for theft. However, our young hero and his feline friend won’t give up without a fight and follow the Fitzwarren household as they take to the high seas on the good Queen Camilla under the command of hapless Captain Plunger.
