The Whipping Boy

By Sid Fleischman (5)

Show/Hide Info

Sid Fleischman’s The Whipping Boy is a rollicking adventure, with a thin vein of a prince and pauper theme thrown in for good measure. Jemmy is the palace’s ‘whipping boy’, a servant subjected to every punishment intended for the kingdom’s obnoxious royal, Prince Brat. The prince, never punished for his misdeeds, is a spoiled character, and Jemmy longs for the days he lived in the city’s sewers, catching rats like his father. When Prince Brat decides to run away, Jemmy joins him, knowing he will only be punished for the prince’s transgression. The two boys engage in amusing exploits, meeting an array of colorful characters, including Hold-Your-Nose-Billy, Hot-Potato Man, and a dancing bear, named Petunia. As the boys brush hands with danger, and dodge the antics of pursuing bandits, the two discover they might actually like each other. Fleischman has concocted a delightful story that throws his protagonists into frequent peril, and is sure to keep students ages 8 and up entertained.
