Summary

The Adventures of Mark Twain by Huckleberry Finn


Everyone knows the story of the raft on the Mississippi and that ol' whitewashed fence, but now it's time for youngins everywhere to get right acquainted with the man behind the pen. Mr. Mark Twain! An interesting character, he was...even if he did sometimes get all gussied up in linen suits and even if he did make it rich and live in a house with so many tiers and gazebos that it looked like a weddin' cake. All that's a little too proper and hog tied for our narrator, Huckleberry Finn, but no one is more right for the job of telling this picture book biography than Huck himself. (We're so glad he would oblige.) And, he'll tell you one thing--that Mr. Twain was a piece a work! Famous for his sense of humor and saying exactly what's on his mind, a real satirist he was--perhaps America's greatest. Ever. True to Huck's voice, this picture book biography is a river boat ride into the life of a real American treasure.
