The Prince and the Pauper by Marianna Mayer, Gary A. Lippincott

Twain's brilliant tale of switched identities is now available to a young audience in this spectacularly illustrated gift book

Young Prince Edward lived a life of luxury with servants to grant his every wish. Tom Canty spent his days begging on the streets, and his nights in a hovel with his tyrannical father. When the two boys meet, a simple switch of clothing sets them on a path they'd never dreamed possible. The prince, mistaken for Tom, is forced to live a pauper's life, while Tom unwillingly takes on the life of a prince. And in the end, each boy finds the king inside himself.

Marianna Mayer has written many original stories, as well as skillfully adapted versions of classic tales. School Library Journal hailed her Pegasus as "a fine example of the quality of writing that can be achieved in picture-book format." Here she joins painter Gary Lippincott, whose classic illustrations suit Twain's tale perfectly.

Together Mayer and Lippincott have created a treasure that belongs in every home library
