The whipping boy setting

Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters. I was pleased to see how Jemmy's character develops over the course of the book. Although I had not seen the movie myself, I was able to make an educated argument against it based on the concerns you outlined. The men do not fall for this ploy and catch up with the boys again. We are privileged to do the work we do, and are continually thankful for the generosity and support from you, our loyal readers, listeners and friends. Plugged In has become a significant compass for our family. I remember reading it at some point during elementary school and enjoying it then. They come across a girl searching for her lost dancing bear and she directs them to the river where they find a kind man with a wagon full of potatoes. Jemmy's heart sinks when Prince Brat backchats the highwaymen and tells them that he is the Prince, demanding that they now and show respect for their heir to the throne. Betsy , the young lady with the performing bear, sees them and calls out to them to stop, and when they refuse, she sets Petunia the bear after them.

Reading it lately, though, it seems that it might hold more interest for kids than adults. Captain Nips — a near-sighted old man who sells potatoes.

Prince Horace — heir to the throne, also known as Prince Brat. The highwaymen eventually escape the sewers but make the mistake of stowing away on a convict ship heading to a prison island. They want the Prince to write the ransom note but when they discover he cannot write, but that Jemmy can, they start to wonder if the boys have switched identities to confuse them.

Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters. The men start to whip the prince, believing him to be the whipping boy. Still believing Jemmy is the prince, and believing it to be a crime worse than murder to beat the prince, they beat Horace instead.

They run as far as the wood where they hide in the hollow of a dead tree as a black bear appears and starts to move towards the highwaymen. Betsy —a fourteen-year-old girl with a dancing bear named Petunia.

In my opinion, you bring sanity and order to the wild world of modern day entertainment.
