"I highly recommend
Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
* Beautifully illustrated with delightful sketches from early editions, The Prince and the Pauper is a brilliant historical satire, played out in two very different socio-economic worlds of 16th-century England. It focuses on two young lookalikes — Edward, the Prince of Wales, and Tom Canty, a street beggar. When both youngsters decide to trade clothes and roles, they find their lives drastically altered. This timeless tale of transposed identities remains one of Twain's best-loved novels.
* Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's readers as it would have been when first published, the novel is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read throughout the world.
* This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text and is enhanced with images carefully selected by our team of professional editors.
