Rediscover the classic American tale or join Tom Sawyer's adventures on for the first time.
A favorite among young readers and adults alike, Mark Twain's TheAdventures of Tom Sawyer, first published in 1876, is considered to one of the great novels about American adolescence along with its sequel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Tom Sawyer is a young orphan living with his half brother Sid at their Aunt Polly's house. A bad apple in school, he resists all efforts at correction, except when it comes to courting the lovely Becky Thatcher. Along with his buddy Huck Finn, Tom fools around, plays practical jokes and causes trouble--until the day when the two witness a murder.
Many readers see The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as a children's book, however there are shades to this tale that even adults who return to the story may have missed.
