Two boys from two different walks of life change places and alter their paths forever? An American classic from Mark Twain. London, 1547. Two young boys meet by chance and strike up a conversation at the gates of a palace. Tom Canty is a poor young boy with few prospects in life; his new friend happens to be Prince Edward VI, the Prince of Wales. The Prince and the Pauper could not be more different from one another: except for the small fact that they look identical. When Tom admires the Prince's fine garments, he and Prince Edward decide on the spur of the moment to swap clothes. But.
