Product Description:

Tom Sawyer is the orphaned rascal who loves adventure and hates rules. Superstitious and devious, Tom gets into plenty of trouble on his own, but throw in a real-life murder, buried treasure, and getting lost in a cave during a Sunday school picnic and you've got real adventure. The Scholastic edition provides an introduction by Jean Craighead George and boasts 319 pages.

This series of picture books draws choice stories from the classic children's book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The stories have been revised for a younger audience, allowing your primary readers to enjoy these classic tales on their own. Each paperback book has about 30-35 pages with 4-5 simple sentences on each page. The print is large for easy reading. The series is illustrated with warm, whimsical drawings that capture the spirit of the playful Tom Sawyer. Once your children read one of these entertaining books, I'm sure they'll want to read all four! ~ Rachel P.
