"You don't know about me, without you've read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, but that ain’t no matter. The book was made by Mr Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things he stretched, but mainly he told the truth." What began life as a sequel to Tom Sawyer quickly became one of the most important of all American novels.

About the Author
Mark Twain was born in Hannibal, Missouri, in 1835. An adventurous young man, Twain traveled around the United States. He worked as a Mississippi riverboat pilot, a miner, and a reporter. When Twain wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1872, most books presented boys as purely good or evil characters. Twain wanted his boy hero, Tom Sawyer, to be a real boy, so he based the book on his own boyhood adventures in Missouri.
