Review: Tom Sawyer, Detective (Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn #4)

User Review  - Goodreads

No big mystery in the plot, not much humor, not much of the distinctive Mark Twain or Huck voice, this book is for Mark Twain/Tom & Huck completists only. Read full review

Review: Tom Sawyer, Detective (Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn #4)

User Review  - Goodreads

This is a light, enjoyable work by Twain. It follows Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn after their original debuts in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. This book could be used with younger crowds as it is short and could appeal to those at a lower reading level. Read full review
