Description

One of the more famous stories in children' s literature, The Prince and the Pauper has become an adult classic as well. Twain' s tall tale about a bedraggled street urchin who becomes king for a day, and his twin, the pampered Prince of Wales left to fend for himself among his seedier subjects, showcases the author' s satirical wit and his acute sense of political irony. The scenes of a young Tom Cantry, wearing the trappings of a prince, but possessing the heart of a beggar, stir both the imagination and the heart. Hearing this familiar story read by Recorded Books' Norman Dietz is a delightful experience that will reintroduce the seasoned reader to our nation' s most treasured storyteller, Mark Twain.

Professional reviews

"This rendition of this classic work is not an outstanding audio performance. Although RNorman Dietz holds the listener's interest,he he fails to capture the correct tone for Twain. In telling the tale of the poor boy and prince who mistakenly swap identities, the author is also chuckling with the reader over the foibles of the rich and the poor. To be at its entertaining best, this work needs to be a performance piece with broad accents and wickedly whispered asides from Twain. This version includes the footnotes, which add little to the piece. T.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
