The Lovereading4Kids comment

A deliciously handsome new edition of an absolute classic to mark the centenary of Mark Twain’s death in 1910. Featuring the unabridged text, Ingpen has succeeded in creating an evocative and nostalgic picture of boyhood on the Mississippi just as Twain succeeded with the words some 150 years ago.

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Tom Sawyer's adventures, real and imaginary, at school, at home and on the banks of the Mississippi, pulse with urgent life.


The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain


Tom Sawyer and his band find adventures at every turn along the Mississippi River. Then one fateful day they witness a murder. Dangerous knowledge - and they swear never to reveal the secret. But what will happen when Tom is frighteningly trapped in a cave with Injun Joe? Mark Twain's thrilling children's take is illustrated by Robert Ingpen whose images stir the imagination. * Hatchard's Summer catalogue 2010 * Ingpen's pencil and watercolour drawings are stunning and look as if they could have been done when Twain was alive. A perfect match for a timeless classic. * ABC Magazine 2010 *
