Robert Ingpen's illustrations create a real sense of time, place and character: each drawing an enchanting evocation of a distant time in the American South.
Mark Twain called his classic tale a 'hymn to boyhood', and this unforgettable story of a boy growing up in a small town on the Mississippi has become an all-time favourite: not just in America, but around the world. The original boyhood hero, the irrepressible Tom Sawyer is an irresistible mix of exuberance, bad behaviour and bravado.
A full-colour illustrated edition of one of the world's best loved stories.
