The Prince and the Pauper (version 2)

Mark TWAIN (1835 - 1910)

One day a poor boy, Tom, gets a little too near the gates of the palace. and the guards start to beat him. However the prince himself intervenes and invites Tom into the palace. They talk about their differences in life and how very similar they both are to one another in appearance. They decide to trade clothes for a few minutes to see what it is like. Still in Tom's clothes, the Prince, Edward, leaves the room for a few minutes, and the guards mistake him for the pauper, throwing him out of the palace!

Tom decides to try and act like the prince, not knowing what has happened to him. Everyone thinks the prince is ill, causing him to forget things, while the real prince struggles to survive in the streets of his own kingdom. This story is about all the adventures both have in the process. --Summary by Fiddlesticks
