About the Novel:Prince Brat and Jemmy are out on the loose! Jemmy, who once made a living catching rats in the sewers, is now living in the king's castle as the whipping boy for Prince Horace, commonly known to the citizens of the kingdom as Prince Brat. Jemmy is punished in his place, for it is illegal to spank the heir. The two escape into the forest where they encounter two tough-talking cutthroats with "reserved seats in Hell", a dancing bear, and a hot-potato man. Misunderstandings, trickery, bullheadedness, and slow-turning cogs in villians' heads occur. Prince Brat begins to appreciate Jemmy's courage and friendship and when the two eventually return to the castle, the prince has resolved to be a true friend to Jemmy and quit his spoiled, selfish ways.
