Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic novel of a mischievous boy's escapades in a 19th-century river town — whitewashing the fence, seeking buried treasure, and more. Good-natured humor and vivid characterizations make the tale a longstanding favorite with readers of all ages.

About the Author

Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, in 1835, and died at Redding, Connecticut in 1910. In his person and in his pursuits he was a man of extraordinary contrasts. Although he left school at twelve when his father died, he was eventually awarded honorary degrees from Yale University, the University of Missouri, and Oxford University. His career encompassed such varied occupations as printer, Mississippi riverboat pilot, journalist, travel writer, and publisher. He made fortunes from his writing but toward the end of his life he had to resort to lecture tours to pay his debts. He was hot-tempered, profane, and sentimental — and also pessimistic, cynical, and tortured by self-doubt. His nostalgia helped produce some of his best books. He lives in American letters as a great artist, the writer whom William Dean Howells called "the Lincoln of our literature."

Richard Peck is a Newbery Award-winning author whose works include A Year Down Yonder, A Long Way from Chicago, Here Lies the Librarian, and many other children's books.
