HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'When I am king, they shall not have bread and shelter only, but also teachings out of books; for a full belly is little worth where the mind is starved, and the heart.' Set in 16-th Century England and following the lives of two young boys, The Prince and the Pauper is a classic and timeless tale. Tom Canty, the lowly pauper is almost identical in looks to Edward Tudor, a prince. Unbeknownst to those around them, the boys strike up an unlikely friendship and when they swop clothing, they realise they could easily pass for one another. When the Prince's father dies, some of the more underhand court officials persuade the pauper to act as the Prince in order to reap the benefits of the 'mistake'. The Prince and the Pauper is a tale of friendship and growing up and one of Mark Twain's most famous works.
