Mischievous and smart, Tom Sawyer, is one of American literature's most beloved literary characters. Originally published in 1876, Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer chronicles the exploits of Tom and his friends - including Twain's other lovable rogue, Huckleberry Finn - as they witness a murder, play at being pirates along the Mississippi River, hunt for treasure and even attend their own funeral. Inspired by Twain's own boyhood, this spirited classic is full of hi-jinks, not to mention a good deal of suspense.

Fakta

Om forfatteren

Mark Twain (1835-1910) was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri. Twain's name is synonymous with his American classics The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885). Twain was born shortly after an appearance by Halley's Comet, and he predicted that he would 'go out with it', too. As chance would have it, he died the day after the comet returned in 1910. Twain was a very influential author whose works are timeless pieces that are still being taught today in classrooms to students of all ages.
