Returning to the classics, I chose to read The Prince and the Pauper, particularly since there are so many retellings of it in modern times. This story follows Tom Canty, a poor boy from Ofal Court and Edward, who becomes King Edward VI before the end of the story. It starts in London with them noticing how similar they look and trading clothes. We then follow their adventures over quite some time while they are mistaken for each other and try to make the best of their situations while still trying to get their own lives back. This is historical fiction at its finest (it’s told from a time about 200 years after the story is set). Of all of the Mark Twain I have read, this is my favorite. As the subtitle suggests, it’s truly a tale for young people of all ages!
