This edition of The Prince and the Pauper includes an Introduction, Biographical Note, and Afterword by R. L. Fisher.

The Prince of Wales, Edward Tudor, was thrown to a filthy drunken mob--by his own guards. Beaten, starved, chased by dogs, forced to beg and steal...while even the prince's one friend, adventurer Miles Hendon, thought the boy was only a demented beggar.

Tom Canty was thrust into an alien life of protocol, ritual, and diplomacy. He, too, was thought mad, for suddenly "forgetting" classic languages, courtly manners, his role in world destiny. The beggar realized, with growing terror, that he was expected to rule, wage war, send people to their deaths...

Then King Henry VIII died. And unless two "mad" boys could convince someone of the truth, their fates would be sealed forever. By a crown.

Long live the king.

From the Publisher:

Rich with surprise and hilarious adventure, The Prince And The Pauper is a delight satire of England's romantic past and a joyful boyhood romp filled with the same tongue-in-cheek irony that sparked the best of Mark Twain's tall tales. Two boys, one an urchin from London's filthy lanes, the other a prince born in a lavish palace, unwittingly trade identities. Thus a bedraggled "Prince of Poverty" discovers that his private dreams have all the come true -- while a pampered Prince of Wales finds himself tossed into a rough-and-tumble world of squalid beggars and villainous thieves. Originally written as a story for children, The Prince And The Pauper is a classic novel for adults as well -- through its stinging attack on the ageless human folly of attempting to measure true worth by outer appearances.
