Children have been able to read about Tom Sawyer with a sense of recognition for the feelings of childhood truly rendered: how Tom find solace for his unjust treatment at the hands of Aunt Polly by dreaming of running away; or how he loves Becky Thatcher, the sort of simpering little blonde girl all boys love, and how he does absolutely the right thing in lying and taking her punishment in school to protect her; or how he and his friends pretend to be pirates or the Merry Men of Sherwood Forest, accurately interrupting their scenarios with arguments about who plays what part...Tom Sawyer is surely among America's undisputed contributions to the world's cast of unforgettable characters.
