There's no one under the sun like Tom Sawyer! Preparations are underway for the monthly party, 'Bare Feet and a Straw Hat Never Hurt anybody, an evening with Mark Twain.' The gang agrees that Tom Sawyer should be brought into the Real World. He'd be a refreshing change after Captain Ahab and Lady D' Winter---much easier to handle. However, upon arrival, Tom immediately picks a fight with Walter, falls in love with Ophelia, and continuously attempts to one-up Linus. When Ophelia is kidnapped, Tom is determined to save her, just like he did with Becky Thatcher. But the clock is ticking... Praise for the series: 'A fantasy steeped in classic literature...narrator Bartholomew Inkster brings Lemony Snicket--like irony to frame the story....References to literature throughout the narrative make this a feast for middle-grade book lovers. Kids who like quirky adventure stories with idiosyncratic characters will enjoy a simpler kind of fun.' -- Publishers Weekly Praise for Saving Moby Dick ...Generously infused with animating elements of mystery, romance and comedy---plus a particularly lively and diverse supporting cast of grown-ups. -Kirkus
