By Mark Twain

The radical starts off with Tom Canty, an impoverished boy residing together with his abusive relations in London. someday Tom Canty and Prince Edward, the son of King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour meet and as a jest, swap outfits. whereas wearing the pauper's rags, the Prince leaves the palace to punish the shield who knocked Tom down. besides the fact that, the men glance remarkably alike and since they swap outfits, the palace guards throw the prince out into the road. The Prince fares poorly in London simply because he insists on proclaiming his id because the real Prince of Wales. in the meantime regardless of Tom's repeated denial of his birthright, the courtroom and the King insist that he's the real prince long past mad. Edward ultimately runs into Tom's relations and a gang of thieves and Twain illustrates England's unfair and barbaric justice procedure. After the demise of Henry VIII, Edward interrupts Tom's coronation and the lads clarify, swap locations, and Edward is topped King of britain. (non illustrated)
