About this ebook

The book that introduced the world to the iconic American characters of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, this 1876 novel by Mark Twain follows the mischievous exploits of the two young boys, who find themselves in situations both humorous and dangerous. Never short of ways to stir up trouble in his hometown on the Mississippi River, Tom uses his wits to get both in and out of tight spots, often with Huck at his side. Featuring moments of significant social commentary, these interconnected tales essentially served as a dry run for Twain's notably weightier sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

A peek into how little boys conduct themselves when parents are nowhere to be seen. Adult themes presented through the innocent filter of a band of ornery young boys made me laugh out loud over and over again.

A good old fashioned american literary piece with great adventures about outlaws, pirates, love and friendship...... Wish it was longer.

My daughter said she read this in school so I read it and I loved it so much that I could read it all day any day. It is so cute and I love if so much I can read it again but it took so long but it was great and worth it.I am not wrong you should try reading it for yourself and tell me what you think of it and if you agree with me and my daughter give us a thumbs up. Please.
