Prince and the Pauper, The (Dover Children's Thrift)

by Mark Twain


Quick Overview

Specially abridged version of beloved classic about the poor beggar boy and the English prince who exchange identities. Twists and turns in an exciting plot that will thrill young readers and listeners.


Rich with surprise and hilarious adventure, "The Prince And The Pauper" is a delight satire of England's romantic past and a joyful boyhood romp filled with the same tongue-in-cheek irony that sparked the best of Mark Twain's tall tales. Two boys, one an urchin from London's filthy lanes, the other a prince born in a lavish palace, unwittingly trade identities. Thus a bedraggled "Prince of Poverty" discovers that his private dreams have all the come true -- while a pampered Prince of Wales finds himself tossed into a rough-and-tumble world of squalid beggars and villainous thieves. Originally written as a story for children, "The Prince And The Pauper" is a classic novel for adults as well -- through its stinging attack on the ageless human folly of attempting to measure true worth by outer appearances. Size 0.28" H x 8.23" L x 5.14" W, 96 pages
