The Prince and the Pauper

So I have to admit that the only reason I know the story of The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain (free at ManyBooks) is because of Wishbone… but I think it’s just one of those beloved stories that everyone knows. Also it was kind of weird to find out Mark Twain wrote it… it’s so Dickens-esque! It’s all very Oliver Twist but also snarky like you’d expect from Twain.

I really liked how it was historical fiction, using Henry VIII and Edward as the aristocracy, but obviously this didn’t happen. Anyway, I liked it overall. It’s a very short read but well worth it for the social commentary and such.
