The first time I was introduced to Mark Twain, it was in double English. The book we were given to read was ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ one of the best stories I’ve ever read.
I used to look forward to those lessons when we took turns in the class to read a page or two from the story of Tom and Huck. They seemed to have so much freedom to roam around, getting into all kinds of trouble and having fun. How life should be.
For character and setting the scene, any of his writing is well worth reading. What’s your favourite classic?
