The Adventures of Tom Sawyer


This Penguin Classics edition of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is compatible with the Second Edition of our Student and Teacher Guides.

From the publisher:

“He was not the Model Boy of the village. He knew the model boy very well though-and loathed him.”

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an iconic work of American fiction. Students will delight in the sheer pleasure of following the rollicking, mischievous adventures of Tom, a consummate prankster with a quick wit. Through the novel’s nostalgic portraits of life on the Mississippi River and humorous escapades – from the famous episode of the whitewashed fence to the ordeal in the cave – Mark Twain explores the deeper themes of the adult world that Tom is one day destined to join.
