Publisher's Description

The classic story of a boy who makes his own rules and the small Missouri town where he and his friends experience the adventures of a lifetime

Filled with schoolyard pranks, buried treasures, spooky caves, secret gangs, and grave robbers, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is entertainment of the highest order. The clever schemes of its eponymous hero—from tricking his friends into completing his chores to sneaking into his own funeral—are the stuff of legend, and the cast of characters, including Huckleberry Finn, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, and the Widow Douglas, is one of the most recognizable in American literature.
 
A tale of friendship, fun, and intrigue that celebrates the rural life Mark Twain knew as a boy growing up on the Mississippi River, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer mixes good-natured humor with thoughtful consideration of serious issues such as race, religion, and the strictures of adult life. Amusing and insightful for readers of all ages, it is one of the most enduring novels in American literature.
 
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Author Bio

Mark Twain was the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910), who grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, and worked as a printer, riverboat pilot, newspaperman, and silver miner before his short story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" brought him international attention. He would go on to write two of the great American novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and many other enduring works of fiction, satire, and travelogue. He is one of the most widely recognized figures in US history.

Editorial Reviews

"Right from the start, I loved the works of Mark Twain. Every time I read about Tom Sawyer, I’d go out and do something low-level naughty, just like him." —John Grisham
 
Praise for Mark Twain
"Authors I particularly admire are Mark Twain and Jerome K. Jerome, who wrote in a certain tone of voice which was humane and understanding of humanity, but always ready to annotate its little foibles." —Terry Pratchett

"Mark Twain is the true father of American literature." —Eugene O’Neill
 
"Twain’s keen eye and irreverent tongue give as much pleasure today as they did a century ago." —Los Angeles Times Book Review
