Tom Sawyer and his band find adventures at every turn along the Mississippi River. Then one fateful day they witness a murder. Dangerous knowledge - and they swear never to reveal the secret. But what will happen when Tom is frighteningly trapped in a cave with Injun Joe? Mark Twain's thrilling children's take is illustrated by Robert Ingpen whose images stir the imagination. * Hatchard's Summer catalogue 2010 * Ingpen's pencil and watercolour drawings are stunning and look as if they could have been done when Twain was alive. A perfect match for a timeless classic. * ABC Magazine 2010 * --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
The classic boy-hero of American literature --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.See all Product description

Reading now as a 'mature' aged man I can better appreciate the culture, language & events better.
It is charming but also a disrespectful reminder of the past.
So when you read Jim being referred to as 'The N word', just remember, it was a reflection of the times.
I shall catch up with their further adventures in time
The loss of one star is for the Kindle version, which had an irritatingly large number of words joined together - e.g. 'I tellyouifI catchyoumeddlingwithhimagain' - which you become surprisingly quick at decoding but was a bit wearing.
If you've not read it - now's your chance.
(Ordered this book by mistake; I found the original one and there was 'hardcover' button on the page, so I decided it would be better to have the hardcover version and it switched me to the retold one).
Not going to bother reading, will buy the original one (read the original Mark Twain's book in e-format together with my 8-years old daughter and the language is perfect, not seeing any reason for retelling).
An awesome classic collection for all to read.
Take a trip back in time and revel in these beautifully written classics. Twain is exceptional, ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’,
‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’, ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’ and ‘Tom Sawyer Detective’
The extras to this volume make it a collection to thoroughly enjoy.
Great extras to this classic.
As for the debate about language, to change the words would be to miss the whole point and distort history. To me the books give a clear message that slavery is wrong and the bad words are put into the mouths of people who would have known no other words to use. I haven't persuaded my children to read these yet but maybe they've read too many Rainbow Fairies and vampire romance books (actually I really enjoyed Twilight!) to enjoy the classics! Don't think these are boring dry books like some classics can be though, they are alive and exciting.
