My favorite of Mark Twain's many wonderful contributions to literature! Our dear hero, the Connecticut Yankee, finds himself lost in the backwards Arthurian society, where his ingenuity and wit make him special enough to wreak havoc on the world of medieval chivalry. Twain's tongue-in-cheek portrayal of our beloved King Arthur and the day-to-day lives of his court is just hilarious. And I always cry a little bit at the end.
Also I must mention that this particular edition boasts truly excellent illustrations and decorations by Trina Schart Hyman - my favorite!
