From the Publisher:

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.

Annotation:
Prince Horace may be the successor to the throne, but the people of his kingdom have dubbed the spoiled monarch "Prince Brat." Chief among the prince's detractors is Jemmy, his whipping boy, who gets a beating whenever the future king misbehaves. When Prince Brat runs away from home, Jemmy accompanies him, plotting to abandon the prince at the first opportunity. However, before Jemmy can escape, both boys are kidnapped by a pair of highwaymen who think they can get a huge ransom for the prince. But the confused kidnappers become convinced that Jemmy is the prince, and that the prince is a mere whipping boy. When Prince Brat's haughty attitude enrages the kidnappers, Jemmy must use his quick wits not only to save himself, but the dislikable prince as well. Winner of the 1987 Newbery Medal.
