Fleischman's The Whipping Boy

These quotations are from Sid Fleischman's The Whipping Boy.

"He [Jemmy] was determined never to spring a tear for the prince to gloat over."

"...fiddle faddled scholar!"

"Even rabbits get muxxed up and lost in this forest..."

"He would miss the shelves of books he'd left behind...he realized that he's lost his taste for ignorance."

"Was it clothes that made a prince...just as rags made a street boy?"

From Fleischman's Notes: "History is alive with lunacies and injustices."
