ABOUT THE BOOK
I first fell in love when I was about nine years old. My mother handed me a well-worn copy of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer because I was hungry for something to read and she ended up losing me for several days as I became lost in Tom's adventures.
What wasn't to like about this kid? He was smart, charming, and a bit of a rogue. He had wonderful imagination and dreamed of big adventures. As a kid who was often drawn into the adventures of Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones, I felt a real connection with Tom's fantastic imagination. I also felt myself drawn into his seemingly idyllic existence in the sultry summers on the Mississippi, and I could almost feel Tom sitting beside me, discussing what brand of mischief he'd fallen into.
Twain's leisurely, conversational writing style became more appealing as I grew up. Like Tom, I almost refused to grow old, and now that I have children of my own, the oldest of whom is making her first forays into reading chapter books, I'm eager to introduce Tom and his gang of robbers to them. I see a lot of Tom's spirit in my kids; there's the same love for life, for adventure, and for spinning a great story.
In truth, Tom is not all that different from a 20th or 21st century kid. In many ways, he is someone many of us might have known when we ourselves were kids. What better way to reawaken our own childhoods than to disappear in Tom's story?
MEET THE AUTHOR

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
When readers compare Mark Twain's boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri and the life of young Tom Sawyer in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, they are bound to see parallels.
