This lovely story has improved my English a lot, and I like it really !
Donna
Although I loved Tom and Huck and the jumping frog story, was a huge fan of Mark Twain, I had not read this until I was grown and had seen a version on TV or movies. Just because of the trading places story it speaks to all of us who would want to walk in someone else's shoes. And yet it helps us see, that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the hill.

Great!

I liked it except the part when the prince gets thrown into jail. I learned that you should try not to change places with someone because you'll find that you really like your own life better.
Ella
This was kind of sad. The twoboys looked alike, so they switched places but they did not like it all. The pauper liked the king's life, but the king didn't like the pauper's life.

One of the best classics anyone can pick up and read. I started off reading these before I started to love Young Adult and mystery genres. So far, it was a great start.
Jo
loving these classics. I did cheat and asked my hubby if it had a happy ending. Otherwise, I don't know if I could've gotten through it.
