    The story is comically told, practically slapstick, so the characters are not deeply drawn The themes, however, are serious, so it is fun and offers opportunities for extended conversations I read it with a small group of pre third and pre fourth graders who were ESL students They were able to access the plot and laugh at the situations The point of view character is Jemmy, a whipping boy When the prince does something wrong, Jemmy is the one who gets whipped The prince, who is nicknamed P

    As a piece of young adult fiction, The Whipping boy earned a Newberry Award I m not sure why Yes, there are vivid descriptions and some good literary devices used, but the storyline is hardly original and the character development is trite If you want a fun and easy read about friendship and overcoming prejudice, then perhaps you may enjoy it But to me, The Whipping Boy does not stand out as a choice children s novel.

    Memory lane is a fun place to visit but it is never where one should stay On occasion I like to revisit past reads to see how much of them I remember and if what I loved about them then still holds up today This was one of my odd loves and I was a bit confused by it because it wasn t based on animals, my predominate focus around that particular point in my life But after stewing over it for a couple of days, I think I finally see the connection See I m thinking this read occurred around the

    Here s a question Which would you rather be a rat catcher or a whipping boy On the one hand, rat catchers catch rats On the other, whipping boys get whipped A lot.At least they do when the prince is known throughout the kingdom as Prince Brat And Jemmy, an orphan plucked from the streets to be His Highness s whipping boy, knows which he prefers If he had a choice, he d exchange his silk and velvet for rags and be back in the sewers in a half blink of an eye.But he doesn t have a choice.

    This is a great read aloud A young prince seems to be terribly spoiled, even to the point of being called Prince Brat He decides to run off with his whipping boy and they have some great adventures The prince makes some good changes to his behavior and he develops a good friendship with Jemmy too Lots of new vocab in this book It is good to show the changes in a character over time.

    Great choice for reluctant readers Quite a slight book I know it is a hit with children who want a short read when choosing a book from their summer reading list Good writing and a few action packed pages but not my favorite Newbery.
