Summary

Featured title on PBS's The Great American Read in 2018

Whether he's sneaking doughnuts, mooning over a pretty girl, or snookering the local boys to do his work for him, Tom Sawyer is the consummate schemer - but his charm and easygoing nature keep him from being in anyone's bad graces for long. However, when Tom teams up with his friend Huck Finn, their sleepy Missouri town had better watch out.

Based on Mark Twain's memories of growing up along the Mississippi River, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is both an idyllic picture of boyhood and an affectionate satire of adult conventions.

Dick Hill is one of my favorite readers.

Dick Hill makes the characters come alive. His rendition of each character with his own voice is spectacular! I use this recording in my classroom and my students want to listen to it all hour. It is truly entertaining! The book is great, obviously... it's Mark Twain.

Brilliant and Timeless

Wow, what is there to say about Tom Sawyer really? It’s an iconic must-read for anyone. Everyone knows the fence scene even if they haven’t read the book.

When reading classics, a great deal of them are serious dramas, filled with melancholy and hardship. So as a nice counter balance to that, check out Tom Sawyer. It’s a fun, loving and thought provoking novel that will make you reminisce on the joys of childhood.

Since Tom is a 5/5 obviously let’s talk about the narrator, I found his voices for the characters funny and accurate to my pre internal voice for the characters. His narration makes revisiting the series feel new and exciting.
