Two of the greatest heroes in children's literature, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, join forces in this classic tale from master storyteller Mark Twain. Tom and Huck are kidnapped by a mad scientist in a balloon-powered airship who plans to fly around the world then crash in flames - taking the boys with him. But when the madman falls overboard during a storm over the Atlantic Ocean, the youngsters are forced to use all their wits to save themselves from further perils aboard the runaway airship.More
This less well known of Mark Twain's novels is a real find for fans because it includes Tom, Huckleberry Finn, and Jim. Narrator Norman Dietz draws each of the characters with distinction. His Southern drawl and delivery of the grammar of the time add authenticity. The three share many debates as they travel - hearing them make their points is fun. Tom Sawyer seems a know-it-all, at times; however, it’s as though Twain is speaking to listeners himself. His sometimes cynical views of politics, religion, and the world are humorous and spot-on even for today.
"All of the Tom Sawyer books can be read and enjoyed by children." (Tom Doherty Associates, Inc.)
