PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Literature Kit for the novel The Whipping Boy written by Sid Fleischman.

Take a Peek Inside:

Watch as a spoiled and selfish boy grows into a kind and appreciative friend. Test student's higher-order thinking skills with useful response questions. Imagine alternatives to the story by writing a scene if the King's knights found Jemmy and the Prince after they ran away. Identify which character said the provided statements. Write a ransom note to the King in Jemmy's hand; then, predict how the King will react to reading this note. Students design their own coat of arms and write a brief presentation to share their creation. Write vocabulary words next to their definitions before using each word in a sentence to show its meaning. Highlight how Prince Brat matured throughout the course of the story in a before and after organizer.

About the Novel:

Prince Brat and Jemmy are out on the loose! Jemmy, who once made a living catching rats in the sewers, is now living in the king’s castle as the whipping boy for Prince Horace, commonly known to the citizens of the kingdom as Prince Brat. Jemmy is punished in his place, for it is illegal to spank the heir. The two escape into the forest where they encounter two tough-talking cutthroats with "reserved seats in Hell", a dancing bear, and a hot-potato man. Misunderstandings, trickery, bullheadedness, and slow-turning cogs in villians' heads occur. Prince Brat begins to appreciate Jemmy’s courage and friendship and when the two eventually return to the castle, the prince has resolved to be a true friend to Jemmy and quit his spoiled, selfish ways.
