Incredible adventures along the banks of the Mississippi! Tom Sawyer has an eye for adventure, and is forever getting into scrapes with his friends and partners in crime Huck Finn and Joe Harper. The three boys run away together to live like pirates on an island, returning just in time to attend their own funeral. Tom and Huck even witness a murder, and later discover a marvellous hoard of treasure. Tom Sawyer's life is more exciting than his wildest dreams...and his adventures are just the sort every boy - and girl - loves to read about. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was first published in 1876 - and it has never been out of print.
