Description
One of the more famous stories in children' s literature, The Prince and the Pauper has become an adult classic as well. Twain' s tall tale about a bedraggled street urchin who becomes king for a day, and his twin, the pampered Prince of Wales left to fend for himself among his seedier subjects, showcases the author' s satirical wit and his acute sense of political irony. The scenes of a young Tom Cantry, wearing the trappings of a prince, but possessing the heart of a beggar, stir both the imagination and the heart. Hearing this familiar story read by Recorded Books' Norman Dietz is a delightful experience that will reintroduce the seasoned reader to our nation' s most treasured storyteller, Mark Twain.

Written by quintessential American humor writer Mark Twain, The Prince and the Pauper offers an extraordinarily insightful glimpse into the British system of social classes. Although the novel was intended for children and young adults, it's a rollicking read for all fans of engrossing fiction.
