Following Sterling's spectacularly successful launch of its children's classic novels (240,000 books in print to date),comes a dazzling new series: Classic Starts. The stories are unabridged and have been rewritten for younger audiences. Classic Starts treats the world's beloved tales (and children) with the respect they deserve.
One 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 each one learns how the other half lives? Mark Twain’s satirical and suspenseful novel about the thin line that separates prince and pauper is a perennial favorite.
