'There comes a time in every boy's life when when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure' Impish, daring young Tom Sawyer is a hero to his friends and a torment to his relations. For wherever there is mischief or adventure, Tom is at the heart of it. During one hot summer, Tom witnesses a murder, runs away to be a pirate, attends his own funeral, rescues an innocent man from the gallows, searches for treasure in a haunted house, foils a devilish plot and discovers a box of gold. But can he escape his nemesis, the villainous Injun Joe? BACKSTORY: Find out some fascinating facts about the author and have a go at a game of marbles!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This classic story will stay with you through life, and always remind you of the things that you knew were important when you first read it" * Independent *
"Whet juvenile appetites with Tom, his entrepreneurial spirit and his taste for treasure-hunting adventure. A paean to true boyhood" * Guardian *
"The language is hard to begin with but the hero is one of the most endearing in literature" -- Michael Morpurgo * Daily Telegraph *
"Twain had a gift for reliving the innermost feelings of growing up, the insecurity, fears and hopes that lie beneath the swagger that young boys maintain. He turned them into literature" * Daily Mail *
"Tom and Huck Finn are as immortal as their swashbuckling friendship" * Daily Mail *
