Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Mark Twain's classic The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is presented here in the original English and, in alternating paragraphs, in its Spanish translation. Released almost a decade prior to his controversial The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn , Twain's story of growing up in a town on the Mississippi River in the 1840s is intended for boys and girls of all ages, and can be read numerous times throughout life, each time presenting a different angle on the characters and events contained within. Although not as vilified as Huck Finn was, even Tom Sawyer had its share of critics due to its raw (but never mean-spirited) subject matter, which includes graverobbers, murderous gangs, getting lost in a cave and then chased by a dangerous criminal, playing hooky from school, and other hijinks and shenanigans. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a must-read for everybody, but especially for American boys.
