    This book is about a whipping boy and a prince escaping the cast

    This book is about a whipping boy and a prince escaping the castle. But after they escaped they had to escape again because as they were riding away, two guys named Hold-Your-Nose Billy and Cut-Water takes them and then they escaped from them. While they were running away they met a little girl looking for her bear. After that they went to a fair, but in the end they went back to the castle. Out of 5 stars i give this book 2 stars because it is really hard to picture it in your head. But there is a couple good parts but its really not a good book.

    t was about 2 little boys won little boy was the prince and lived in royalty and the other little boy was the whipping boy and he would get spanked if the prince was bad the prince felt bad about making him get spanked so he became friends with the little boy and they ran from the castle but they returned home latter in the book


    it was bad i really did not get the book and it did not tell you what things looked like so i could not get a good visual or a good movie in the mind and it was not very surprising and it jumped from place to place so i did not really no what i was reading about.

    About The Whipping Boy

    Jemmy is the main character. He wants to leave the castle because he is 'Prince Brat's' whipping boy. The Prince wants to leave because he wants to make the biggest trick that he can do, and that is to leave the castle and not tell anyone.
