Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mark Twains two most famous creations, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, are reunited in this high-spirited and captivating tale of mystery and murder in deepest Arkansas. When Tom and Huck are invited to stay at Toms uncles farm in Arkansas, they jump at the opportunity to escape the tedium of a long winter at home. A chance encounter on a steamboat downriver, though, leads to a complex plot of diamond heists, mistaken identity, and murder, involving the two boys in a bigger adventure than even they had in mind. Hucks typically bemused, folksy narration provides a poignant contrast to Toms frenetic ingenuity, as the mystery begins tortuously to unravel, and it is in these two wryly affectionate portrayals that Twain breaths life and humor into his charming, unjustly neglected tale. Mark Twain is one of Americas greatest writers. His best-loved work, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is widely considered to be the first modern American novel.
