The Prince and the Pauper [electronic resource] / Mark Twain.

Twain, Mark, 1835-1911 (Author). Recorded Books, LLC. (Added Author). Project Gutenberg. (Added Author).


One of the more famous stories in children's literature, The Prince and the Pauper has become an adult classic as well. Twain's tall tale about a bedraggled street urchin who becomes king for a day, and his twin, the pampered Prince of Wales left to fend for himself among his seedier subjects, showcases the author's satirical wit and his acute sense of political irony. The scenes of a young Tom Cantry, wearing the trappings of a prince, but possessing the heart of a beggar, stir both the imagination and the heart.
