Not credible but a good listen anyway

I have to admit that I always thought this was a children?s tale. Although the story is about children, it was clearly not written for them. There are scenes of great cruelty and hideous execution and one gripping episode when the young prince is kidnapped and tied up, expecting at any moment to be murdered by a homicidal priest. It?s a good story, even if very far fetched. Very different from other Mark Twain works,which has lead me to revisit some of his other books.
