The adventures of Tom Sawyer  Cover Image Book Book

The adventures of Tom Sawyer / Mark Twain ; with afterword by Alfred Kazin.


Sparkling with mischief, jumping with youthful adventurousness, Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer is one of the most splendid re-creations of childhood in all of literature. It is a light-hearted romp, full of humor and warmth. It shares with its sequel, the masterpiece Huckleberry Finn, not only a set of unforgettable characters--Tom, Huck, Aunt Polly, and others--but a profound understanding of humankind as well. Through such hilarious scenes as the famous fence-whitewashing incident, Twain gives us a portrait--perceptive yet tender--of a humanity rendered foolish by its own aspirations and obsessions.
