I remember this specifically because I was so proud of my new book, in which I had written my name and age - 11 years old. Sadly, and this is a real-life true story, our family dog ate it!

Tom Sawyer, Detective is an 1896 novel by Mark Twain. It is a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), and Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894). Tom Sawyer attempts to solve a mysterious murder in this burlesque of the immensely popular detective novels of the time. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn.

It's spring — and both Tom and Huck have a bad case of spring fever, a malady that's instantly cured when Tom is asked by his Aunt Sally to come as soon as he can to "Arkansaw." It seems that Uncle Silas is in considerable trouble and needs some help. Huck Finn narrates this lesser-known tale of the duo's adventures as they set out down river by steamer.Arriving at their destination, Tom and Huck find Silas being pursued by a dangerous pair of thugs, giving Tom an opportunity to break out the mail-order detective kit he's been itching to use. Thrills, laughs, and a roller coaster ride of breathtaking action follow as clever Tom and crafty Huck get involved with stolen diamonds, meet a mysterious stranger, find a body in a shallow grave, and learn that Uncle Silas has confessed to a murder he didn’t commit.Filled with the folk humor and storytelling charm that have made Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn so enduringly popular, this unjustly neglected comic gem by one of America's foremost writers will delight readers of all ages.

It's a year or two after Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn's big adventure rafting down the Mississippi in the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. This is a short novel about Huck and Tom going to visit Tom's aunt and uncle. Tom's uncle has been accused of a murder, but Tom is on the case to find the real killer. The plot of this little book reminds me a lot of Puddin'head Wilson. It's a fun little book, but not anywhere in the league of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, or The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

This is more or less just an extension of Huckleberry Finn with Huck and Tom involved in a murder case at Tom's Aunt Sally's place in Arkansas. Mark Twain penned this novella about ten years later but its setting is only a year or two after they break Jim out at Aunt Sally's.
This is a children's edition so I shouldn't have been too surprised certain offensive words beginning with 'N' are changed to 'Negroe'. I suppose this is better than one well intentioned publisher who raised a storm of controversy a couple years ago by changing the offending word in a new edition of Huckleberry Finn to 'slave'. But the word was considered normal in Twain's day and the terrible scourge of slavery won't be undone by editing classic literature.
This is a fun little story, told from Huck's perspective and certainly appropriate for young and old alike, even with (or perhaps because of?) the editing

Read multiple reviews that listed the best home school reading sets for children. In the top five book sets are the Companion Library set, My Bookhouse, Childrens Hour, and Journeys Through Book Land. This was my son's second long story to read cover to cover. It really helped him develop a love for reading which is my goal.

I read this book in my early teens and enjoyed it a lot. Over the last few months I have been very stressed and I wanted something that made me remember the happier times in my life. Also, I just started using the amazon kindle app on my tablet and this was the perfect read. Now that I'm in my late 30s the adventures of Tom Sawyer were more amusing than fascinating and it was exactly what I needed to hit reset. I didn't want a self-help, melancholy book, just something to make me laugh. This hit the spot ^_^

I am a old man and have been a fan of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn since I was a teenager. I have read and enjoyed other Twain books but Tom and Huck have always been my favorites and I have laughed many times while reading of their adventures. This was my first time reading Tom Sawyer detective and it was good to follow these two characters a little further in their lives. It was a good and fast read, I recommend it to any Tom and Huck fans.

This book is the better sequel to the adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. In this book we see Huck and Tom revisiting Uncle Silas.
Now Jim stays at home, which is for the better. In Abroad, he and Tom argued too much, it was funny at first but got tiring. That is not to say this book is perfect but better.
I breezed through this book, and the majority of it seemed rather boring and unimportant, but it is the last chapter that makes all this reading worth it. Like all the other books, the ending is really weak.
This book good, I recommend reading this over Abroad. This is the last fully published book of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and it is a very fitting end for very unforgettable characters.

Tom's growing up. Still looking out for his own self interest, but now concerned about others, too. Really liked this the best, but I won't give it away.
These are just fantastic books. Tom Saywer is the first of these classics that I read to my kids and they absolutely loved it. The book itself is beautifully bound and seems like almost a collectors item. I found that they really did manage to capture all the best parts of the original and kept the pace going so the kids couldn't get enough. Well done....will collect all the Classic Start books!
