Author Info
Peter Sis
Raised in Prague, Czechoslovakia, author and illustrator Peter Sis attended that city's Academy of Fine Arts from which he received both a B.A. and an M.A. He also attended the Royal College of Art in London. In addition to writing and illustrating his own books for children, Sis has also illustrated works by such other authors as Kate Banks, Sid Fleischman, and George Shannon. The illustrations for his 1997 picture-book biography of Galileo, STARRY MESSENGER, earned that book a Caldecott Honor Award. Peter Sis immigrated to the United States in 1982 and became a naturalized American citizen in 1988. His critically acclaimed autobiographical graphic picture book, THE WALL, was a 2008 Caldecott Honor Book.
From the Publisher
Editors Note A Prince and a Pauper Jemmy, once a poor boy living on the streets, now lives in a castle. As the whipping boy, he bears the punishment when Prince Brat misbehaves, for it is forbidden to spank, thrash, or whack the heir to the throne. The two boys have nothing in common and even less reason to like one another. But when they find themselves taken hostage after running away, they are left with no choice but to trust each other.
