Who could forget the pranks, the adventures, the sheer fun of Tom Sawyer? From Tom’s sly trickery with the whitewashed fence to his and Becky Thatcher’s calamities in Bat Cave, the enjoyment never ends.

Just what did boys do in a small town during the mid-1800s, a time when there were no televisions, no arcades, and no videos? They whitewashed fences, floated down rivers, traded marbles, formed secret societies, smoked pipes, and, on occasion, managed to attend their own funerals. Yes, they may have been a bit mischievous, but as Aunt Polly said of Tom when she believed him to be dead, “He was the best-hearted boy that ever was.” Aunt Polly’s sentiments reveal one of Mark Twain’s cardinal philosophies: In this deceitful and infirm world, innocence can be found only in the heart of a boy.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a humorous and nostalgic book depicting the carefree days of boyhood in a small Midwestern town. The characters are based on Twain’s schoolmates and the town, Hannibal, Missouri, is where Twain grew up.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Twain captures perfectly the mind of the little boy and it had excitement and adventure without cliche feats that a real little boy would be unlikely to accomplish. That's the thing I liked most about this book, is the likelyhood of it. Everything that happened is perfectly plausible in the real world and a lot of it probably did happen. "

    " I love the humour Mark Twain puts into this book, when you're reading this book you think, "Tom's growing up and learning all these life lessons along the way!" then at the end Tom asks Huck to join his "Robber Group" and you're at the beginning again, I don't know if Tom will ever grow up:) "
