From the Publisher:

Sparkling with mischief, jumping with youthful adventure, Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer is one of the most splendid re-creations of childhood in all of literature. It is a lighthearted romp, full of humor and warmth. It shares with its sequel, Huckleberry Finn, not only a set of unforgettable characters--Tom, Huck, Aunt Polly and others--but a profound understanding of humanity as well. Through such hilarious scenes as the famous fence-whitewashing incident, Twain gives a portrait--perceptive yet tender--of a humanity rendered foolish by his own aspirations and obsessions. Written as much for adults as for young boys and girls, Tom Sawyer is the work of a master storyteller performing in his shirt sleeves, using his best talents to everyone's delight.

From the Back Cover:

[front flap]
Mark Twain called his 1876 novel a "hymn to boyhood," and it remains an archetypal vision of pre-Civil War small-town America. Readers of all ages delight in its humorous narrative, delivered in a voice as mischievous and good-hearted as Tom Sawyer himself. Generations have played hooky with Twain's young hero, chuckling at his pranks and thrilling in his starry-eyed search for buried treasure.
This handsome edition is the only hardcover version that features all of True Williams's endearing illustrations. Chosen by Twain himself, Williams was the first artist to depict Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, leaving an indelible stamp on the popular image of American childhood.

Mark Twain
(Samuel Langhorne Clemens, 1835–1910)
A native of Missouri, Twain pursued a variety of professions until his 1865 short story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," created an overnight sensation and propelled him into literary prominence. Novelist, journalist, essayist, and a lecturer of unsurpassed popularity, Twain was known primarily as a humorist in his lifetime, but he has since come to be regarded as one of America's greatest authors.
