The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain - Audio Version Things aren't always as they seem; neither are people.
For decades children and adults all over the world have been mesmerized and inspired by the famed story telling of Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper.
Set in England, during the reign of King Henry the Eighth, this tantalizing tale begins in not one place, but in two. In the king's palace a lofty lord is born, while in the cramped rooms of the deprived residents of Offal Court, Tom Canty becomes just another mouth to feed. The entire nation rejoices with the birth of the prince, but no one heeds the pauper.
When the little prince takes on the clothes of a beggar, he suddenly loses all of his power and privileges. Although still a prince on the "inside," he expects others to treat him as such. He feels more and more frustrated when others see him as an incoherent madman instead of the head of England.
The main message and theme behind this book is about the natural human fault of judging people merely based on their outward appearance.
Lovingly recreated as an mp3 audio you can listen to one of the modern day classics again and again.
Ideal for children, teachers, students, the whole family and even the young at heart.
