This book really touches on important topics, but in a very discreet way. It shows the importance of honesty, perserverance, and loyalty in a beautifully written tale. Mark Twain captures the essence of sixteenth century England, and what life was like, not only for the poor of the time, but the royalty as well. Both of the main characters, Prince Edward and young Tom Canty learn valuable lessons in life. Tom learns the hardships of being a king and learns to greater appreciate his simple life while doing much to improve the quality of life for England's poor. Through Edward's many trial in trying to reclaim his throne he meets many people and sees many hardships that make him a far wiser King and ruler.
