Lay Siege to Heaven: A Novel of Saint Catherine of Siena () by Louis de WohlFormat: Paperback.The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain.

Rich with surprise and hilarious adventure, The Prince and the Pauper is a delightful satire of England’s romantic past and a joyful boyhood romp filled with the same tongue-in-cheek irony that sparked the best of Mark Twain’s tall tales.
