In this Novel Study guide, take your students on a delightful adventure with a spoiled young prince and his resourceful whipping boy. Jemmy, a young orphaned rat-catcher, is the whipping boy for Prince Horace, known to his subjects as Prince Brat. When the prince is naughty or disobedient, Jemmy gets the whipping because no one is allowed to hit the prince. As their adventure unfolds, the boys gain an appreciation and respect for each other, and both learn valuable lessons in life. This is a wonderful, funny, fast-moving tale full of colourful language and vivid literary images. Activities included in this unit focus on: comprehension, vocabulary, creative writing, enrichment and response journal. As a great finish to the unit, you could have a welcome home feast for Jemmy and Horace. Fried Chicken, grapes, cheese, honey, and round pumpernickel bread to tear apart with their hands makes a wonderfully tactile dining experience! What a great way to end a fantastic novel!
