The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain by Mark Twain

THE PRINCE THE PAUPER follows the life of Tom Canty, a poor boy living with his abusive family in London. One day, Tom Canty and Prince Edward, the son of the king, meet and realize they greatly resemble one another. On a whim, they switch clothes, and with them, lives. While dressed in the pauper's rags, the prince is thrown out of the palace into the street. The prince and pauper must navigate through their (mutually) unfamiliar surroundings and somehow switch places.

About the Author

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his pseudonym Mark Twain, was an American writer and humorist. Apprenticed to a printer, Twain became an expert typesetter and riverboat pilot before trying his hand at goldmining, which was unsuccessful. Twain then became a journalist, writing a series of successful short stories. Twain's fame as a writer was firmly established by the 1876 publication of THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER, and THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN in 1884. When Twain died in 1910 he was hailed as the "greatest American humorist of his age." William Faulkner later wrote that he was "the father of American literature."
