Study Guides and Lesson Plans for
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
About The Adventures of Tom Sawyer:
Sparkling with mischief, jumping with youthful adventure, Mark
Twain's Tom Sawyer is one of the most splendid re-creations of childhood in all of
literature. It is a lighthearted romp, full of humor and warmth. It shares with its
sequel, Huckleberry Finn, not only a set of unforgettable characters--Tom, Huck,
Aunt Polly and others--but a profound understanding of humanity as well. Through such
hilarious scenes as the famous fence-whitewashing incident, Twain gives a
portrait--perceptive yet tender--of a humanity rendered foolish by his own aspirations and
obsessions. Written as much for adults as for young boys and girls, Tom Sawyer is
the work of a master storyteller performing in his shirt sleeves, using his best talents
to everyone's delight.
