Book Review- Mark Twain- The Prince and the Pauper

Mark Twain- The Prince and the Pauper (Baronet Books) 3.75 Stars

Two young boys from completely opposite standings meet unexpectedly. Edward Tudor is the heir to England’s throne, while Tom Canty is a beggar, both look nearly identical. They decide to switch positions temporarily and the adventure begins, as both of them find out what it is like to live someone else’s life.

This is another one of those timeless classics kids should read. This story is the telling of the saying ‘life isn’t always greener on the other side’. It is interesting to see how the boys deal with the situations they are put in and how they are both happy to go back to their old lives in the end. The characters are rich and beautifully crafted by a wonderful writer.

I recommend The Prince and the Pauper to every one of all ages.
