The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is an novel by Mark Twain about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi is set in the s in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived as a boy. In the novel Tom Sawyer has several adventures, often with his friend Huckleberry ally a commercial failure, the book ended up being the best Author: Mark Twain. book doesn't make Tom Sawyer mere kids' stuff. Twain never could make up his mind whether Tom Sawyer was for kids or grown-ups, and his book is the better for it. If Tom stepped out of his nineteenth-century Missouri small town and into a contemporary American classroom, a guidance counselor would probably tag him as an at-risk latchkey kid.

A faint wind moaned through the trees, and Tom feared it might be the spirits of the dead, complaining at being disturbed. The boys talked little, and only under their breath, for the time and the place and the pervading solemnity and silence oppressed their spirits. First things first: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is going to focus primarily on Tom young (we're talking elementary school age) native of St. Petersburg, Missouri has a liking for escapades, exploits, deeds of derring-do, or what you might call that the book is called The Adventures (with emphasis on the plural) rather than The Adventure of Tom Sawyer.

  Book Review: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: By Mark Twain Tom Sawyer like every child just wants to be free, adventurous, moral, and intelligent. Born in the heart of the South, in Missouri, Tom, an orphan, lives with his Aunt Polly and cousins and loves to play hooky so he can go fishing. Teaching Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as anything more than a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was right that the problem of the twentieth century is the color line.

Mark Twain (–) was the pen name of Samuel Clemens, a journalist and the author of numerous short stories and novels set in the American south.

This is the coming of age story of a boy, Tom Sawyer, in Southern America just before the twentieth century.
