Adventures of Tom Sawyer (version 2 dramatic reading)

Book cover
By: (1835-1910)

Growing up on the banks of the Mississippi river, a mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer spends his days getting into one scrape after another. Tom's constant cleverness, superstition, trickery, and daring make him a handful to raise, and his Aunt Polly declares that she has "never seen the beat of that boy!"

My husband and I enjoyed this audio book very much on a long trip. The narrator is great and "does the voices" without trying too hard or sounding silly. I recommend this.

The best voice I've ever heard ... I want more books read by the same person. The story was really great. I played it for my 3 months old son, but I enjoyed it too.
