Not sure what else I can add to the mountains of praise these two books have received over the years. Clearly, they are are classics of American literature that deserve to be read in their original form by all American high school students. I think that what I liked best about these two books is the innocence and simplicity of the era. While kids today are busy with TV, movies, computer games, social media, and cell phones, Tom, Huck and their friends could entertain themselves for hours on end playing pirates, trading knick-knacks, pulling innocent pranks, and searching haunted houses. These books offer a real slivce-of-life of the times.
