For Tom Sawyer, adventure was always just around the corner. Sometimes, tired of being the respectable boy his kindly but harassed Aunt Polly felt he should be, he sneaked out in the dark of night to seek excitement with his wonderful unrespectable friend, Huck Finn. Sometimes adventure came to him by accident—when he witnessed a murder in a lonely cemetery was surprised by ‘ghost’ in a haunted house, and got lost in a labyrinthine cave with the bewitching Becky Thatcher. His was a joyous life, filled with feuds and friendships, with crazy jokes, narrow escapes, and splendid schemes. Mark Twain, author of this classic story of American boyhood, said in a preface to the 1876 edition: “Most of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred: one or two were experiences of my own, the rest those of boys who were schoolmates of mine. Huck Finn is drawn from life; Tom Sawyer also, but not from an individual—he is a combination of the characteristics of three boys who I knew. The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves in the West at the period of this story.” Published by Choice Publishing in 1989 for READER’S DIGEST was written by MARK TWAIN with illustrations by JOHN FALTER.
