|The Prince and the Pauper
by Mark Twain
This story is one of my favorites during childhood and recently I got curious on what the original material was like. It didn’t exactly meet my expectations though, but it had been pretty impressive. It’s certainly a wonderful story!
Rating: B- NICE! It had been really fun!
The story concerns Tom Canty, a poor boy, who bears a striking resemblance to Prince Edward, heir to the throne of England. Through a series of mishaps, the boys change places, and those around them do not believe them when they each claim to be the other boy. Eventually, all ends well, with Edward restored to the throne and Tom retaining a place in his court. (School Library Journal)
