Tom Sawyer gets into mischief and mayhem with his friend Huck Finn in the Mark Twain classic, The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer.


Mississippi Murder and Mischief

Tom Sawyer is an orphan who lives with his Aunt Polly on the banks of the Mississippi River more than 100 years ago - during a time when slavery still existed and people thought you could cure warts by playing with dead cats. When Tom isn't trying to show off for the cutest girl in school, Becky Thatcher, he's off with his best friend, Huck Finn, fishing, playing with frogs or pretending to be a pirate. But when the pair witness a terrible murder, Tom and Huck's adventures take a thrilling turn.


Double Trouble

Tom Sawyer and his friend, Huck, are first-class trouble makers, which many of you will probably be able to relate to - especially if you've ever just wanted to just walk out of a boring math class and go skateboarding, or in Tom's case, go rafting down the Mississippi River and pretend to be a pirate. Tom and Huck are free spirits whose sense of adventure is more important than things like bathing or going to school.


The Bottom Line

The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer is a great read that has a bit of everything - treasure hunts, murder, romance and a neat look at what life was like when kids played with dead rats and frogs, instead of PS2s and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Each chapter is a unique adventure that fits into a larger story about the importance of friendship and the idea of freedom.

Best Time to Read a Book?

  • In the summer when I'm not in school.
  • Only when my teacher assigns a book report.
  • Any time's a good time to read.
  • When all my fave shows are re-runs.
