The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman

I am on a mission to read all 89 winners of the Newbery medel.  The Whipping Boy was number 27.  It jumped to the top of the pile based on a recommendation by my nine-year-old son.  He is reading it in his third grade reading group and loving it.

And Peter Sis illustrated this edition.  Need I say more?  No, of course not, brilliance speaks for itself.

If we ever run away, we hope the heck it’s with Jemmy.
