Mark Twain called his 1876 novel a "hymn to boyhood," and it remains an archetypal vision of small-town America before the Civil War. Readers of all ages delight in its humorous narrative voice, as mischievous and good-hearted as Tom Sawyer himself. This inexpensive hardcover edition is the only version that features the endearing illustrations from the original publication.
