This book is wonderful for a 3rd to 4th grade level. It is very easy to follow, and has content that stays around grade level.

This book follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer as he hunts for buried treasure, visits graveyards, and explores dark and secret caves near him house.

Following Sterling's spectacularly successful launch of its children's classic novels (240,000 books in print to date),comes a dazzling new series: Classic Starts. The stories are abridged; the quality is complete. Classic Starts treats the world's beloved tales (and children) with the respect they deserve--all at an incomparable price.

"Tom Sawyer liked adventures, which means he was always getting in trouble." Searching for treasure, witnessing a murder, getting caught in a bat cave,

If someone knew how to find treasure they would probably do it. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is about a boy named Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin Tom's friend who are trying to find treasure. In the book the author makes you wonder if they will find treasure or not. The author does this by making them start digging for it a lot. The author also makes it scary for them because there is a criminal around. When they were looking for treasure they saw the criminal. The author makes you ...more

This story was published in 1876 and that makes it historical fiction. Tom was a witness to a murder and he had to decide whether to keep quiet about it and hope for the best or tell the authorities and risk the murderer coming after him. Tom was a rambunctious and mischievous boy and some of the lessons he had to learn way back in 1876 are still valuable lessons to learn today. It’s the story of how a young boy grows up morally, psychologically and intellectually. Some of the lessons kids can ...more

I tried re-reading this book to see if I could understand it this time, or see if it wa any better. I was wrong. We all know the basic story of Tom Sawyer. Honestly, the way it is written and transcribed, it makes me feel blessed that "Great Illustrated Classics" exist. That series is how I understood Frankenstein, read Jekyll & Hyde over and over, but Tom Sawyer is just plain boring. I don't casually read Twain or Shakespeare. I could spend a full 10 minutes on a page of Tom Sawyer and ...more

Once again another read from the Classic Starts series. My boys really got into this one and I admit that I did too. What boy doesn't love the adventures of young Tom Sawyer? There were a couple of times where we were all sitting at the edge of our seats in anticipation of how Tom was going to get out of some of the situations he finds himself in. It was admittedly a little intense for them at times and they kept begging for "one more chapter!" so that they could have some resolution. I highly ...more

It has a splendid childhood just like have the world, and let us unforgettable and " The Adventures of Tom Sawyer " masters Tom is a typical example, he is a clever sedentary children, he resourceful, compassionate, who resent the attitude of the real environment, bent out of town, to become outlaws, too chivalric life. In his Aunt 's eyes, he is a naughty, acting more ghosts, she cannot help himself like him; in children it seems, he was a wise leader, a hero. From them we saw the shadow of ...more

I would never have picked this book up, but Steven brought it home from the library and I decided to try it. It was a great way to introduce my kids to the story. They loved it. And while I know they missed some of the humor and wit of Twain's writing, it made the story so much more accessible. I will definitely try another Classic Starts.

I liked the book a lot. The further along I got in the book, the more I liked it. I wouldn't say it's a favorite, but still really good none-the-less. As always, I loved Huck Finn. It took me so long to read because it took some time for me to get into it, plus, I was reading another book as well.

There isn't a whole lot I can say about this book so, I guess I'll end it here!

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is an edge of your seat kind of book. It has an overwhelmingly powerful voice. That if you read it right you can see perfectly clear. I enjoyed reading it and never got bored. It was not a very difficult book to read. You can't really sum up just one thing about it. But "' Tomas Sawyer'" had some crazy adventures.
Kristin
Since I never read this as a child, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this aloud with my 7 & 8 year olds. I saw reviews criticizing this version for being too abridged-- but since I haven't read the original, I enjoyed the brevity of this one along with my kids. It was a fun book to read-- with lots of interesting conversations and interruptions throughout.

I enjoyed reading about the adventures of a boy. There are classic themes about children all throughout, even though it is set in the late 1800s. I especially enjoyed the superstitions Tom believed. My favorite thing about this book is that tom is very adventurous and curious about everything. Over all, I have enjoyed this book. And I recommend to people who likes to read adventure stories.

I read this to my son when he was 8. This was one of the classics I wanted to him to know. Since most kids don't get a chance to read them. It was enjoyable reading about this mischief he encountered. And the suspense of a murder in town.

This book has a lot of humor in it, and it is easily connected to many of our previous childhood experiences. The version I read isn't this one, but since I have this version of book at home too I just added it. I strongly recommend this book, it is a classic and I pity those who haven't read it.

This is a good book. It was about a kid named Tom Sawyer who went on a lot of adventures. He has an adventurous soul. he can go on 20+ adventures a day. If you asked him to tell you about something he'd do it. Tom sawyer knows a lot in this book.

(Tom, Huck & Bicky) are the main personalities of The adventures of Tom Sawyer written by Mark Twain.

The events and adventures transferred between { school, church, graveyard and cave}.

It is a nice story to read.

I didn't like this book as much as I thought I would. I guess it's because I didn't understand some, if not most, of it. But the parts I did understand were humorus. Not my favorite book, but it's a classic.

This was the extremely abridged version. It was quite dull. After reading a bit of the original version, this version does not compare at all. It lacks a lot of the "oomph" that the original story had. Do not recommend at ALL.

Only read it because I had to teach it for five years. Over time, it became funnier, and less like having a tooth pulled.
