Description


In his 1876 semi-autobiographical account of life in a small Missouri town, Mark Twain assembled a cast of characters so memorable that they became imprinted on American culture for all time. Illustrator C. F. Payne breathes new life into the impish Tom, overbearing Aunt Polly, the "idle and lawless" Huckleberry Finn, and all the other residents of fictional St. Petersburg in Creative Editions' first publication of Twain's most popular and widely read novel.
