"It may have happened, it may not have happened: but it could have
happened," wrote Mark Twain in his preface to The Prince and the
Pauper. "What am I writing?" says Twain, "A historical tale of 300
years ago, simply for the love of it." This is the tale of two
young boys, one a prince and the other a pauper, who by a stroke of
fate look identical. They meet and on a whim briefly trade places,
but to their horror become trapped in the other's world. The prince
endures rags and hardship while the pauper suffers the demanding
obligations of princedom. The text is unabridged and includes 114
vintage illustrations from the original 1882 edition.
