Publisher's Summary

In this faithful adaptation of Mark Twain's immortal classic, two boys, one a pauper and the other a prince, discover that they share an incredible likeness and accidentally find their roles in life reversed. The young prince must now contend with London's criminals, vagabonds and lunatics, while the pauper finds that he has a country to run, and internal plots to thwart. Can the real prince reclaim his right before an imposter is crowned in his place? And will his look-alike give up his regal position and return to a life of poverty?

An adventure for the young and young at heart, bursting with non-stop excitement, wit and warmth, as the spirit of Twain’s beloved classic comes to life with a full cast, music score, and thousands of sound effects.

Prince & the Pauper

What did you love best about Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper?

I have always loved this story. Sweet innocent, funny.

What other book might you compare Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper to and why?

no comparison.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I enjoy listening to books that have narrated by multiple preformers, This brings the story to life making it more believable and the characters more 3-D. I wish more publishers would do this.<br/>Before purchasing this version, I sampled the others that were available, even though this was a shorter version, the other narrators were dull sounding. These performers truly brought life to their roles and I wish they had preformed a longer version.
