‘Saturday morning was come, and all the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life.‘
So we enter a day of endless possibility in Mark Twain’s classic tale. This unforgettable story of a boy growing up in a small town on the Mississippi has become an all-time favourite, not just in America, but around the world.
Robert Ingpen’s illustrations create a real sense of time, place and character: each image an enchanting evocation of a distant time in the American South.
