Is he a creative genius or a mischief-maker? A threat to civilized society or just a red-blooded American boy? No one in St. Petersburg, Missouri, quite knows what to make of Tom Sawyer, but all agree on one point: he sure keeps things hopping. If there's any excitement at all to be found in this sleepy Mississippi River town, you can be sure Tom will find it, and crank it up a notch as well.
Mark Twain created Tom Sawyer from the experiences of his own childhood and based him on three boys he really knew. We've all known someone like Tom - the charmer who can connive his way out of any trouble, who can coax his friends into enlisting in the most preposterous schemes. But as Tom's zest for adventure leads the gang along, who would want to miss out on all the fun?
This book is part of the "The Adventures of Tom and Huck" series.
