The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of the most famous characters in literature, Tom Sawyer has an uncanny knack of getting into mischief.
Wherever Tom is there is drama, whether playing tricks on his friends to do his job of painting the fence, being witness to a murder, finding a box of gold or attending his own funeral.
Tom always seems to come out on top but will he be able to outwit Injun Joe?


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.

Synopsis

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

'There comes a time in every boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure' Impish, daring young Tom Sawyer is a hero to his friends and a torment to his relations. For wherever there is mischief or adventure, Tom is at the heart of it. During one hot summer, Tom witnesses a murder, runs away to be a pirate, attends his own funeral, rescues an innocent man from the gallows, searches for treasure in a haunted house, foils a devilish plot and discovers a box of gold. But can he escape his nemesis, the villainous Injun Joe?

Reviews

The hero is one of the most endearing in literature.
