    " 1987 John Newbery Medal winner. It's recommended for ages 9 to 12. However, these will have to be skilled readers to fully understand all the words in the book. "

    " I loved this book! I admit I was drawn to it in my Mother's library because of the picture on the front, but I read this book in one sitting. "

    " This book was fun to read because the language in it wasn't modern times based. It took place years ago and you could imagine the accents of the people in it. I liked how at first the prince was a brat and was rude to everyone, and at the end he transformed after seeing he wasn't better then everyone else. Jemmy, the main character, was great. He could read and write when the royal prince couldn't, and if it wasn't for him I don't think they could have made it out alive! This book took me no time to read because it was interesting and fun along the whole way. "
