LoveReading View on Tom Sawyer - retold by Anna Kirwan

Tom Sawyer is a respectable boy in a little Mississippi River town.  Huck Finn is a freedom-loving, neglected outcast.  Join them on an adventure of a lifetime when only courage and quick-thinking on their part will save them.  This is a gripping retelling of one of Twain's best-known stories. 

 

This and the other retellings by Real Reads are a fantastic way to introduce children to some of the best-known and best-loved classics; beautifully presented and skilfully retold (and condensed – 64 pages in total) and illustrated, they are true to the original plot, capture something of the flavour and tone of the original work, while simplifying the narrative and dialogue. They’re primarily aimed for younger readers – 8-13 year olds but are also a great ‘quick fix’ for teenagers and adults.

Tom Sawyer - retold by Anna Kirwan Synopsis

Tom Sawyer is a respectable boy in a little Mississippi River town. Huck Finn is a freedom-loving, neglected outcast. What better playmate could Tom want? One night, innocent games of pirates and Robin Hood turn serious when the boys witness a murder in the graveyard. The murderer will kill them if they tell the truth. What should they do?


The boys decide to search for the murderer’s treasure. What risks will they take? Who else will they endanger? Will they have the courage and quick thinking to escape from dark caverns, cross the mighty Mississippi, and outwit the criminals? Will they find what they are looking for?
