The Prince and the Pauper, by Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-prince-and-the-pauper-4-by-mark-twain/
The Prince and the Pauper tells the story of two young boys who are identical in appearance: Tom Canty, a pauper who lives with his abusive father in Offal Court off Pudding Lane in London, and Prince Edward, son of King Henry VIII. After trading clothes for a lark, misadventure results in trading places - the King must survive a pauper's fate, and Tom becomes the presumed King. The book follows the adventures as the two try to learn the world of the other, and strive to find their way back to their true life. (Summary by Krista Zaleski)

Father Andrew is yours.

And yes, multiple claims are fine. I'm requesting they not be sequential chapters, just to help separate the voices for the reader but feel free to claim more than one.
