    DescriptionOne boy, penniless and in rags, forced to beg in the street. The other, a king's son, coddled and given all he could want. What happens when the two boys change clothes and places and learn how the other half lives? Mark Twain's satirical and suspenseful novel about the thin line that separates prince and pauper is a perennial favourite. Abridged for easier reading and carefully rewritten, with Classic Starts[trademark], young readers can experience the wonder of timeless stories from an early age.

    Review quote
    "Praise for "Classic Starts(TM)" "" ""The books have won the praise of a number of educators. Peggy Charren, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an advocate for higher-quality children's media, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, said she has read several {and states}'they're terrific.'"--"The Wall Street Journal." "Where abridgements are useful in introducing literature to grade-schoolers not equipped to handle the real thing, books in this series will fill the bill."--"Booklist. "" ""Large print, short chapters, and an abundance of white space provide an attractive, more-accessible option for readers who are not ready to handle the originals."--"School Library Journal" "Even those who dislike adaptations will find much to admire in this retelling..."--"School""Library Journal" (for "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer)"" ""This...retelling will be appreciated by readers not yet ready for the original work."--"School Library Journal" (for "Anne of Green Gables").
