Although nothing beats the full versions of these classic novels, the Great Illustrated Classic format is a good way for young readers to become familiar with the story of the originals. The illustrated classic version has about 21 lines of 18 point font on every page. There is a black and white ink picture on the right side of every page that helps to illustrate the story. The sentence structure is more complex than early transitional readers. Compared to the orig

The Prince and the Pauper is one of those books that I started reading in childhood. Since then, I bet I've read it twenty or more times. Most recently, I read it out loud to my husband as we traveled, earlier this year. It's a challenging out-loud read, but an enduring and endearing story.

If I'm feeling in a hurry when I read it, then I do a sort of "good parts" read: I read the early stuff about Tom, about his meeting with the prince, and then mainly about Tom's adventures after that. I tend t

Always been a fan of Mark Twain's works. The best boy-hood book I have read. I loved the mischief and the social issues entwined within a light-hearted plot.

Recommends it for: I highly recommend this book to kids of all ages.
Tom Sawyer is, without a doubt, one of my favorite books. I read it when I was in my early teens and it's still tops on my list of “personal favorites”. It is rich with so much of what living a full life is all about. It has adventure, love, duty, friendship, family, loyalty, freedom, not to mention the innocence and experience of growing up in a small town in the Deep South, during the time of slavery. It’s a genuine treasure.

I read this in a Am. Lit. college course. This is a great book. The story, the plot, the characters, everything.

The dialogue in this book is based on local dialects found in that region of the country in that era.

Twain worked on riverboats along the Mississippi River for several years when he was a young man. He gives us brief glimpses into life in that era.

I have my mom's copy that she had as a kid. Lots of scribbles. A lot of subtle humor. I liked the treatment of poverty and extravagant wealth, no pity and brutally honest. Intense for a kids book but a good book for kids none the less. Good book to read aloud.

This is only supposed to refer to The Prince and the Pauper, but this was all they had. What would it be like to live in royalty, then live as a tramp? What would it be like to live as a tramp, then become the Prince of England, soon to be King?
