Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn


Although Mark Twain wrote The adventures of Tom Sawyer for children, it was also loved by adults. Its sequel The adventures of Huckleberry Finn, written for adults, is equally loved by children. Both novels owe their inspiration to his childhood in the sleepy river town of Hannibal, Missouri. Tom Sawyer is the amusing story of his own childhood adventures. Of its sequel, Hemingway wrote 'All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn... it's the best book we've had'. In Dixon Wecter's words, 'a joy forever... unquestionably one of the masterpieces of American and world literature', the journey of Huck Finn down the Mississippi with the Negro slave Jim in search of freedom is an enthralling story.
