The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Author: Mark Twain Illustrator: Robert Ingpen Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/12/2021

The perfect gift for a young adventurer. Share your beloved childhood stories with the next generation! Robert Ingpen's illustrations create a real sense of time, place and character: each drawing an enchanting evocation of a distant time in the American South. Mark Twain called his classic tale a 'hymn to boyhood', and this unforgettable story of a boy growing up in a small town on the Mississippi has become an all-time favourite: not just in America, but around the world. The original boyhood hero, the irrepressible Tom Sawyer is an irresistible mix of exuberance, bad behaviour and bravado. A full-colour illustrated edition of one of the world's best loved stories. 'Ingpen's drawings are utterly compelling' - Michael Morpurgo
