The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

   Tom Sawyer is an adventurous young lad with an active imagination. As can be found in his era, he and his friends embark on every sort of adventure they can, imaginary or real. A few of the adventures Tom and his friends get into are:

  • Sneaking out to the graveyard and stumbling upon gravestealers. When they see Injun Joe kill the doctor and pin the crime on Muff Potter, they vow to keep silent or face Injun Joe's wrath.
  • When Tom is punished by whitewashing the fence, he cleverly gets out of it by tricking his friends into doing it for him. Every job is fun if you are told you can't do it right, or at all. 
  • Tom, Huckleberry Finn, and Joe Harper sneak away from camp, raft down the river, and declare themselves pirates. When they discover that the town thinks they have died, they return home and parade down the isle of their funeral. 
  • On the quest for treasure, Huck and Tom stumble upon Injun Joe, and follow him to find his treasure. They discover that he is on a mission for revenge. 
  • Tom and Betty get lost in the cave. When they finally make it out a hidden back entrance, Betty's father has the front entrance barred. When Tom finds out, he quickly exclaims that they had seen Injun Joe there. 

         THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is an interesting and entertaining book to read.
