Not as good as Huckleberry Finn,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: Oxford Children's Classics (Hardcover)
A classic children's book, however Huckleberry Finn is far more invigorating for adult reading. I firmly believe that children's fiction needs to appeal to the adult as well, in as much as otherwise adults would not read to their children, or buy books for children. This is a fun story, but very much one for a child growing up in the western culture, and nowhere near as enlightening and well written as Huckleberry Finn.
