  • "A bratty prince and his whipping boy have many adventures when they inadvertently trade places after becoming involved with dangerous outlaws. A shout comes echoing up the stairway "Fetch the whipping boy!" A young orphan named Jemmy rouses from his sleep. "Ain't I already been whipped twice today? Gaw! What's the prince done now? It was forbidden to spank, thrash, or whack the heir to the throne. Jemmy had been plucked from the streets to serve as whipping boy to the arrogant and spiteful Prince Brat. Dreaming of running away, Jemmy finds himself trapped in Prince Brat's own dream--at once brash and perilous. In this briskly told tale of high adventure, taut with suspense and rich with colorful characters, the whipping boy and Prince Brat must at last confront each other."
  • "Just think of it! The young Prince Brat (as everyone calls him) has a whipping boy who takes his punishment for him! The two of them run away only to be captured by kidnappers who get them mixed up. The adventure continues and includes the hot potato man, a dancing bear, and lots of rats!

  • "The Oklahoma territory in 1894 provides the setting for the tale of Tom Freshour, a half-Indian orphan who, with his mentor Jake and the mysteriously beautiful Samantha, runs into an unscrupulous business scheme meant to cheat farmers."
  • "The Oklahoma Territory was a bleak, brutal place in 1894, and Speer Morgan's compelling novel begins, appropriately enough, with a botched public hanging. Witnessing this unsettling ritual is Tom Freshour, a striking half-Indian who knows nothing of the world beyond the orphanage where he's been raised by a sadistic minister. But Tom is about to get a bracing education, thanks especially to two people: Jake Jaycox, an aging hardware salesman who takes Tom under his wing, and Samantha King, a beautiful, mysterious woman who attaches herself to the two men and promptly seduces Tom.The wild and bawdy adventures of this colorful trio begin with a horrific flood, but the story turns darker when Tom and his companions run afoul of a scheme to steal thousands of acres from depression-ravaged farmers. Before long, they are being chased by a hired killer; meanwhile, Tom's searing memories of his childhood drive him back to the orphanage and a violent confrontation with the man who made him a whipping boy. Ultimately, Tom learns that the real villains in this unforgiving territory are not the outlaws with six-guns but the heartless businessmen who will do anything to amass wealth and property.In the tradition of Pete Dexter's Deadwood, this is a richly imagined yarn about frontier life by a superb storyteller. Remarkable for its suspense, rich characterization, and seamless prose, The Whipping Boy is both a hugely entertaining tale and an utterly fresh evocation of a legendary American landscape."The Whipping Boy is full of rich delights, particularly for those readers who fear that, in these literary times, a serious writer with a cogent vision of the world has to secure those things by giving up his storytelling soul. Speer Morgan has it both ways, with a novel that is compelling and resonant. I enjoyed this book immensely."⁰́₄ Robert Olen Butler, author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain"Speer Morgan has taken full advantage of the Old West yarn, giving us beguiling heroes we can root for, ugly villains we can hiss, and a highly original plot with as many twists and turns as a hillside mule path. The Whipping Boy is a fresh and exciting book."⁰́₄ Ron Hansen, author of Mariette in Ecstasy"Here is the real West in its lurid twilight ⁰́₄ the Oklahoma Indian Territory when the last land grab was under way. Here too is a good mystery, a bawdy romance, and characters with blood, not ink, in their veins. Every vignette of frontier life ⁰́₄ flood, train wreck, blizzard, bank, brothel, or church ⁰́₄ is authentic. Forget L'Amour; what really happened is so much better, and done here by a better hand."⁰́₄ Will Baker, author of Hell, West, and Crooked"In a tale as plainspoken as a country conversation and as relentless as a prairie wind, Morgan tells of a young man's search for wholeness in a time when the violence of the American frontier was giving way to a new kind of lawlessness. The Whipping Boy brings alive the pain and shame of a little-read chapter of history, when greed ruled, thievery wore a frock coat, and guile was the governing virtue."⁰́₄ Charles Gueswelle, columnist, Kansas City Star"With The Whipping Boy, Speer Morgan delivers a rollicking page-turner. I read it once with a fierce compulsion to find out what would happen, a second time for the pleasure of the language and craft."⁰́₄ Wally Lamb, author of She's Come Undone"@en

John Newbery Award, 1987. This highly original tale, a sort of takeoff on the Prince and the Pauper, shows what happens when an obnoxious prince switches places with the boy who is punished for the prince's every misdeed, the whipping boy. A bratty prince and his whipping boy have many adventures when they inadvertently trade places after becoming involved with dangerous outlaws. A shout comes echoing up the stairway, fetch the whipping boy. A young orphan named Jemmy rouses from his sleep. Ain't I already been whipped twice today? What's the prince done now? It was forbidden to spank, thrash, or whack the heir to the throne. Jemmy had been plucked from the streets to serve as whipping boy to the arrogant and spiteful Prince Brat. Dreaming of running away, Jemmy finds himself trapped in Prince Brat's own dream, at once brash and perilous. In this briskly told tale of high adventure, taut with suspense and rich with colorful characters, the whipping boy and Prince Brat must at last confront each other. Award winning author Sid Fleischman again blends the broadly comic with the deeply compassionate in this memorable novel; splendid entertainment and a Newbery Medal winning book in 1987. Fleischman's earlier works, such as the 1966 Chancy and the Grand Rascal and By the Great Horn Spoon, are also sure treats, and happily still in print."
