The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In the 1840s, a mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother, Sid, in the fictional Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. After playing hooky from school on Friday and dirtying his clothes in a fight, Tom is made to whitewash the fence as punishment all of the next day. At first, Tom is disheartened by having to forfeit his day off. However, he soon cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He trades the treasures he got by tricking his friends into whitewashing the fence for tickets given out in Sunday school for memorizing Bible verses, which can be used to claim a Bible as a prize. He received enough tickets to be given the Bible. However, in response to a question to show off his knowledge, he incorrectly answers that the first disciples were David and Goliath.<br>

Missing half the book
After chapter 25 the book goes back to chapter 16 and continues on from there for the rest of the book. WASTE OF TIME
Do not buy
Repeats chapters...missing many chapters because of this. Buy another version
This criticism pertains to the HMS Studios edition of the book. My copy abruptly repeats chapters 15 through 18 as chapters 25 through 28. The actual chapters 25 through 28 are completely missing, as is most of chapter 24.
