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.
