Tom Canty and Edward Tudor could have been identical twins.
Their birthdays match, their faces match, but there the likeness stops.
For Edward is a prince, heir to King Henry VIII, whilst Tom is a miserable pauper.
But when fate intervenes, Edward is thrown out of the palace in rags, leaving ignorant Tom to play the part of a royal prince.
Even those who have never read the novel will be familiar with Twain's classic tale of mistaken identity: at once an adventure story and a fantasy of timeless appeal.
