The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tom Sawyer seems to be unable to avoid trouble. Wherever he is, he seems to be doing something adults don't approve of. But Tom is smart: he knows better than most how to slide out of sight when the big trouble starts brewing. A classic story of being a boy and getting into scrapes. With a superb introduction by Richard Peck who tells us how he came to love this story and why it remains such a special adventure in his mind. In this terrific pocket size Puffin edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who plus many activities beyond the book.

Synopsis

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (with an Introduction by Richard Peck) by Mark Twain

On the banks of the Mississippi, Tom Sawyer and his friends seek out adventure at every turn. Then one fateful night they witness a murder. The boys swear never to reveal the secret and run away to be pirates and search for hidden treasure. But when Tom gets trapped in a cave with the murderer, can he escape unharmed?

Reviews

Twain had a greater effect than any other writer on the evolution of American prose.
