The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain 51zR8EDS8lL

Reviewed by Christina S., Age 11

Deceitful wonders, wonderful lies, came from the thief.

They came from the pirate, the Indian, the boy, Tom Sawyer.

‘Thomas Sawyer’ when he’s in trouble, ‘Capt’n Tom’ when he’s a playin’.

Aunt Polly calls ‘im “mischief,” Becky calls ‘im “Sweet.”

Most of all, “Thomas Sawyer!” rings through the air, but only when he’s caught.

For he’s sly as a fox, that thief, pirate, injun, boy, Thomas Sawyer.
