LoveReading View on The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (with an Introduction by Richard Peck)

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.
