“When I am king they shall not have bread and shelter only, but also teachings out of books, for a full belly is little worth where the mind is starved.” - Mark Twain, The Prince and the Pauper / This story is about two boys born in London on the same day: Edward, Prince of Wales and Tom Canty, a street beggar. Edward was born in the royal family and everyone was waiting for his birth. Tom was born in a poor family and was destined to know all the burdens of poor life. Once, two children met and found that they were very similar to each other. From that moment on, their lives changed abruptly and their difficult adventures began. Starting to read this story, you will find yourself in an incredible and wonderful world, ruled by kings. I like how Mark Twain accurately and colorfully describes all the historical details - traditions, churches, castles, even clothing and laws. This story is about how two boys from different walks of life swapped places. Prince Edward Tudor and Tom Kenti were so similar that they could not be distinguished. Each of the boys is waiting for an incredible adventure. First, the guys are having fun and enjoying unfamiliar sensations. But then each of them understands how difficult life is often. I really like this story. This is probably the best book of Mark Twain.
