First published in 1881, The Prince and the Pauper is the story of a poor boy, Tom Canty, who exchanges clothes and identities with Edward Tudor, Prince of England. It is at once an adventure story, a fantasy of timeless appeal, and an intriguing example of the author's abiding interest in separating the true from the false, the genuine from the impostor. With characteristic humor and color, Twain brings to life the sixteenth-century royal court, the crowded, boisterous streets inhabited by London's hoi polloi, and the behavior of two young boys who are in many ways smarter than their elders. In spinning his tale, he draws on themes from ancient mythology, the Bible, familiar fairy tales, and popular children's literature of the period.Multiple-choice questions require the student to recall specific details, sequence the events, draw inferences from story ... new vocabulary, prior to each chapter ac lncludes complete answer keys for comprehension and vocabulary exercises ac Contains 72 pages with exciting illustrations. ... in King Arthurs Court EDCTR309B EDCTR309A EDCTR309R Frankenstein EDCTR310B EDCTR310A EDCTR310Ranbsp;...
