Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tor Classics are affordably-priced editions designed to attract the young reader. Original dynamic cover art enthusiastically represents the excitement of each story. Appropriate "reader friendly" type sizes have been chosen for each title—offering clear, accurate, and readable text. All editions are complete and unabridged, and feature Introductions and Afterwords.

This edition of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer includes a Biographical Note, Preface, and Afterword by Keith Neilson.

Synopsis:

Children have been able to read about Tom Sawyer with a sense of recognition for the feelings of childhood truly rendered: how Tom find solace for his unjust treatment at the hands of Aunt Polly by dreaming of running away; or how he loves Becky Thatcher, the sort of simpering little blonde girl all boys love, and how he does absolutely the right thing in lying and taking her punishment in school to protect her; or how he and his friends pretend to be pirates or the Merry Men of Sherwood Forest, accurately interrupting their scenarios with arguments about who plays what part...Tom Sawyer is surely among America's undisputed contributions to the world's cast of unforgettable characters.
