The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Foreword by: Bruce Brooks
For Ages: 8 - 12
  • common core
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 Sawyer was 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.

In this trio of stories by two-time Newbery Honor author Bruce Brooks, cousins devise a fiendishly clever way to circumvent the law and give a loved one a proper burial; a boy begrudgingly tries to fulfill his dying uncle's last wishes; and a young girl must learn to unburden herself of the weight of grief. Each of Brooks's characters is searching for a way to deal with what's been left behind -- all have grief to be shared, and personal discoveries to be made.
