Though Anthony has proven his strength as a writer for children, this latest piece leaves me a little mystified. Rewriting the story of the Prince and the Pauper seemed promising, but there are far too many questionable situations for children. I was upset that there were NO viable, positive adults in this story. Both sets of parents and all other adult characters were chillingly devoid of humanity. The ending left the reader feeling as though these children were horribly used and abused with no hope for their futures. Though I felt some connection to Roald Dahl's style, it lacked the humor that he injected into every story. Please give us someone with elements of redemption.
