The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn : Revised Edition (Penguin Classics)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Revised Edition - Penguin Classics Author:Mark Twain, John Seelye 'Cordially hated and dreaded by all the mothers of the town because he was idle, and lawless, vulgar, and bad - and because all their children admired him so', Huckleberry Finn, the fourteen-year-old son of the town drunkard, joins runaway slave Jim on an exciting journey down the mighty Mississippi River on a raft.
Huck Finn has probably been reviewed more times than anyone would care to count, so I guess it would be advantageous to make this short and sweet- not to mention different. I have a seven year old son who loves classic literature. Not many books lend themselves to storytelling to a seven year old that were written over one hundred years ago. This one does. It is in my humble opinion that this book is a wonderful selection for trying to bring the tradition of family reading back into style.
