The Prince and the Pauper - Story CD

$9.99
This masterpiece by Mark Twain is a classic adventure set in the tumultuous England of the 1500´s.
The story turns on the resemblance between the heir of the throne, young Prince Edward, and a poverty-stricken London lad, Tom Shanty. When chance throws them together, and they exchange outfits as a lark, they become caught in each other's roles. Young Tom, thought by the court to be the real prince, is overwhelmed and terrified by life in the palace. Meanwhile, Prince Edward learns unforgettable lessons about the true state of his citizens. Swirling around these two boys are dashing heroes, appalling villains, hair's breadth escapes and outrageous laughter. Woven through it all is Mark Twain's understanding of the follies and true nobility of which we humans are capable.
