BlurbOriginally written for children and first published in 1881, Twain's delightful satire of England's past will amuse listeners young and old alike. The Prince and the Pauper relates the hilarious adventures of Tom Canty, a ragged street urchin who bears a striking resemblance to Edward VI, son of Henry VIII. Longing to experience the fun and excitement of the outside world, the young prince persuades Tom to exchange clothes and in doing so, the two (temporarily) change places in society.
