The Prince And The Pauper

Two babies are born on the same day into very different lives. One is a prince and the other is a pauper who will grow up to beg on the streets of London.
 The Prince and the Pauper was Mark Twain's first book about people in an earlier time. He writes about the lives of rich people and poor people.

'I have an idea,' said Edward suddenly. He jumped out of his chair.
'Let's change clothes. You can be the prince and I'll be the pauper!'

 One day, ten years later, the prince and the pauper meet and they change places. For a short time they enjoy it. But then they cannot change back. That same day, the old king dies. Will a pauper now be King of England?
