In the 1840s, a mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother, Sid, in the fictional Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. After playing hooky from school on Friday and dirtying his clothes in a fight, Tom is made to whitewash the fence as punishment all of the next day. At first, Tom is disheartened by having to forfeit his day off. However, he soon cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He trades the treasures he got by tricking his friends into whitewashing the fence for tickets given out in Sunday school for memorizing Bible verses, which can be used to claim a Bible as a prize. He received enough tickets to be given the Bible. However, in response to a question to show off his knowledge, he incorrectly answers that the first disciples were David and Goliath.<br>

    This book was good but it repeats some chapters
  • This publication of the story is garbage

    By Zmb k!!ller
    I read this all the way to chapter 25 and then it ends and begins the next chapter halfway through and ends that chapter about halfway through where it’s actually meant to end before repeating previous chapters from the beginning of the book for the remainder of this publication. Do yourself a favor and pick a different copy.
  • Very bad

    By liv_smith07
    It doesn’t complete the whole story. The book starts over from page 16 on page 26 if that makes sense. Do not get this book!

    Chapter 25 repeats chapter 15, chapter 26 - chapter 16, and so on - in total 4 chapters are duplicate!
  • Pretty good, just one thing

    I absolutely loved reading this book. Such a great story! I definitely recommend it to everyone. The reason I rated this specific book 4 stars is because, three chapters toward the end are repeated and are the exact same and three chapters a bit earlier in the book, and in the space that the three chapters were repeated, it also skipped three chapters! I had to get out my real book to do that part of the reading. Otherwise, this is a great exact replica of the original Tom Sawyer. Happy reading!
