This is about The Whipping Boy and has a free readers’ theater play printable. This books makes a wonderful read aloud for a classroom or family. If reading chapter books to children at school, a great choice that will engage children and retain their interest through the entire book. It is also a great selection for guiding reading groups.
The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman is such an exciting story. The prince has a whipping boy for when he is naughty. Someone in the castle punishes a boy from the streets when the prince won’t learn to read! The boy from the streets does learn to read though no one knows that has happened, which makes for a very interesting turn of events when the two boys are captured in a bog.
This story is sure to delight elementary age children. It is the winner of the Newbery Medal, and has won other awards.

Sid Fleischman gave me permission to post this play years ago. He has since passed on but his books are still wonderful.
Thank you for reading, Carolyn
