Bio
Sid Fleischman is the Newbery Award-winning author of The Whipping Boy (on which Prince Brat is based). Born in Brooklyn, he grew up in San Diego during the Great Depression. Just out of high school, he traveled widely in vaudeville and with a midnight ghost-and-goblin show. After wartime service with the U.S. Naval Reserve, he finished college and worked as a reporter on the San Diego Daily Journal. When the paper folded in 1950, he turned to fiction writing. One of Fleischman's novels was bought for a major motion picture, and he was offered a contract to write the screenplay. Today he divides his time between writing films and children's books. He lives in Santa Monica, California.
