The Prince and the Pauper

Author: Mark Twain
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

This book is about a prince and a pauper who meet at the gate of the palace. The pauper describes his life to the prince who seems to like it so the prince becomes the pauper; the pauper the prince. The trouble is they look alike so noone can tell them apart. The prince is cast away and tries to find his way back to being the King. The mock King tries to change some of England's cruelest laws.
