The Whipping Boy is a Newbery medal-winning children's book by Sid Fleischman. Prince Horace can be spoiled and, craving attention from his father, he frequently misbehaves—to the point he is nicknamed "Prince Brat." Since he is a prince, no one may raise a hand against him. Therefore, his family provides him with a whipping boy, Jemmy, an orphaned boy who will be punished in the prince's stead. It is a good read-aloud with your students.
