Available

Description

An imaginative and mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother, Sid, in the Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. After playing hooky from school on Friday and dirtying his clothes in a fight, Tom is made to whitewash the fence as punishment on Saturday. At first, Tom is disappointed by having to forfeit his day off. However, he soon cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He trades these treasures for tickets given out in Sunday school for memorizing Bible verses and uses the tickets to claim a Bible as a prize. He loses much of his glory, however, when, in response to a question to show off his knowledge, he incorrectly answers that the first two disciples were David and Goliath.

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.
