This book is an adaptation of the classic Mark Twain novel The Prince and the Pauper. One boy, penniless and in rags, forced to beg in the street. The other, a king s son, coddled and given all he could want. What happens when the two boys change clothes and places, and each one learns how the other half lives? Mark Twain s satirical and suspenseful novel about the thin line that separates prince and pauper is a perennial favorite. This easy to read adaptation is guaranteed to hook beginning readers not yet ready to tackle the original.
