Mark Twain is probably one of the most well-known authors out there. He is famous for his characters Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and their wild imaginations.
In the first book, it starts out with Sawyer being punished by white-washin’ a really high fence. Now, Sawyer is probably one of the smartest kids you will ever hear about because he already knows the secret to men: they want what is hard to get. He makes the boys of the neighborhood believe that this isn’t a chore or a punishment, but something Sawyer really enjoys. Only he can do it right. So naturally, the boys all want to do it and trade things for a chance!
Things that are traded include, but are not limited to: orange peels, one-eyed cat, six firecrackers, a piece of red chalk and a piece of blue bottle glass. For a young boy, that is like finding a buried treasure!
Speaking of buried treasure…
Sawyer and Finn are on a hunt to find buried treasure this summer, and come across more danger than they anticipated. Murder? Death to three boys? Death to a doctor? A damsel in distress? Pirates? Outlaws? Murderers?
This book is a fun-loving books for the adventure at heart. It is easy to read and is good for a young reader. Twain captures the thoughts and dramatic thoughts of a young boy and girl and will keep you laughing till the end of the book.
