It is England in the time of Henry VII. Two boys meet. They were born on the same day; they look identical but they are not from the same family. Tom Canty is a pauper living in a hovel in the back streets of London, surviving as a beggar. Edward is Prince of Wales and about to become Edward VI.

By a sudden twist of fate, they find themselves in each other's circumstances, the pauper raised to royalty and the prince - to the state of a pauper.

This engaging fantasy is one of the classics of children's literature from the pen of Mark Twain. Woven into the fragment of an exciting story involving two boys trying to make sense of their worlds is a wealth of historical detail coloring the life and times of Tudor England.

Listener Opinions

    " I love this book because it reinforces what I've always thought about people being pretty much the same, whether rich or poor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 4/22/2011

    " Again, since I probably read this when I was 7 or 8 I don't think I truly appreciated it. I don't honestly remember if it was better than a 3/5. "

    " Funny, this one I was rereading from my childhood. I am in a group of women and we decided to read something that we had read and enjoyed as a child, but as I read it this time, I found myself skimming through it, not really enjoying the old English language used in the book. "

    " To be honest I don't remember what exactly it was about, having read it quite a while ago... "

    It took a while to warm up to it, but once I did I found it very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 3/7/2011

    " Mark Twain's wit and timeless insights on the inequities of society ring true today. This is a delightful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 3/6/2011

    " I always get so bogged down by the language of the book that it takes me a while to remember why I love this one so much. A great story where good always triumphs. A great read. "

    " Regretfully I suspect that very soon some *great* and *creative* mind, will be *inspired* to write a sequel to this truly great story, depicting prince William's experience of spending night on the street with homeless folks (I do sympathize with those, perhaps even more so than William himself) "
