Book Review of Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Adventures of Tom Sawyer
reviewed on + 40 more book reviews

Hanging out with the town outcast, "running away" to a nearby river island, flirting with the girls, and basically driving the adults nuts, Tom Sawyer is 100% American boy. In him Mark Twain managed to capture the adventure, mischief, and complete innocence of childhood. If there's a child or adult out there who hasn't read it yet, give them a copy. It's quite simply one of the best kids stories ever told.
