  The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
HappyHomemaker of Oregon, 5/11/2011
An fun, well-written tale about a naughty boy, penned by Mark Twain, who obviously loved being a naughty boy! I have enjoyed reading this book again and again over the years.
It's about a boy on the shore of the Mississippi without much adult authority in his life, and his subsequent adventures. He plays pirates, gets lost in a cave (that part is not portrayed as fun at all, just so you know), finds treasure, and gallantly tells the truth to keep an innocent man alive.
Tom certainly is not the best of role models, but with a little help from parents boys and girls alike can enjoy this rollicking tale.
