In this classic story, Mark Twain gives his satiric look at social injustice, freedom, and innocence, with the story of two boys, one a prince and the other a pauper, who switch places. The story surrounds Edward Tudor and Tom Canty, who after meeting, discover that their resemblance to each other is remarkable. When the two switch clothing, the prince (now believed to be the pauper) is thrown out of the castle and forced to live as Tom Canty. Tom, on the other hand, is believed to be Prince Edward and is forced to be the prince, despite trying to explain his true identity and is decidedly thought to be "mad". After many adventures, Edward Tudor resumes his rightful, royal position and Tom Canty accepts a role that recognizes his intelligence and good heartedness.
