Mark Twain's classic tale is revised for the sake of young, pre-teen readers in this Great Illustrated Classics work. This version is true to the original. Excellent pen & ink drawings that reside on every facing page illustrate the story. This work is well- designed to attract young readers who hopefully will be induced to tackle Twain's original when older. Highly recommended for younger readers. (Don't trust the Amazon reviews under listings for this book; they refer to a variety of editions of Mark Twain's original work, a symptom of Amazon's incompetence and disorganization). ( )

Summary: Edward Tudor and Tom Canty are the same age and share the same features--only one of them is a pauper's child and the other is the heir to the throne of England. When fate brings the boys together, they switch clothes, but soon they are in each other's worlds.
