Here is the story of Tom, Huck, Becky, and Aunt Polly; a tale of adventures, pranks, playing hookey, and summertime fun. Written by the author sometimes called the Lincoln of literature, The Adventures of Tom Sawyerwas surprisingly neither a critical nor a financial success when it was first published in 1876. It was Mark Twain's first novel. However, since then Tom Sawyer has become his most popular work, enjoying dramatic, film, and even Broadway musical interpretations.

About the Author

Beloved American author Samuel Langhorne Clemens became famous under the pen name, Mark Twain. Receiving tremendous accolades from fellow authors, Twain was touted as, "the father of American literature." What Twain brought to the masses was a kind of literature that was not made previously accessible to its audience. Twain's writing incorporated the dialect most American people actually spoke at the time, making each story feel relatable and close to home. It was his use of colloquial language that earned him the title of one of the most revered American authors for generations to come.
