9780140350173: The Prince and the Pauper (Puffin Classics)

Tom Canty and Edward Tudor look alike, but their lives could hardly be more different. For Edward is Prince (and heir to the throne), whilst Tom is a miserable pauper. Until one day fate intervenes, and for a while each must see how the other lives.

Review:

Novel by Mark Twain, published in 1881. In it Twain satirizes social conventions, concluding that appearances often hide a person's true value. Despite its saccharine plot, the novel succeeds as a critique of legal and moral injustices. On a lark two identical-looking boys, Prince Edward Tudor of Wales and street urchin Tom Canty, exchange clothes. In the ensuing mix-up, each is mistaken for the other and both are believed to be mad. Edward learns about the problems of commoners, while Tom learns to play the role of a prince and then a king. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
