Description


Includes character guide, quiz, author info, historical background, and how to create a secret code

It's lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them.

Huck Finn spits, swears, smokes a pipe, and never goes to school. With his too-big clothes and battered straw hat, Huck is in need of "civilizing," and the Widow Douglas is determined to take him in hand. And wouldn't you know, Huck's no-good Pap is also after him and he locks Huck up in his cabin in the woods. But Huck won't stand too much of this, and after a daring escape, he takes off down the Mississppi on a raft with an runaway slave called Jim. But plenty of dangers wait for them along the river—will they survive and win their freedom?

Praise For…


"For a hundred years, the argument that this novel is has been identified, reidentified, examined, waged and advanced. What it cannot be is dismissed. It is classic literature, which is to say it heaves, manifests and lasts."  —Toni Morrison

"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. . . . There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since."  —Ernest Hemingway
