Not satisifed simply reliving his adventures down the river with Huck and Jim, Tom Sawyer finds himself thirsting once again for adventure and excitement. So, when Tom, Huck, and Jim are abducted as unwitting passengers aboard a hot-air balloon set to circumnavigate the world, Tom takes the opportunity to bask in the excitement of unplanned travel. Throughout their travels across the ocean, through the deserts of Africa, and even a visit to the Sphinx, Tom, Huck, and Jim experience the wider world through the colorful lenses of Mark Twain's most enduring characters.
This lesser-known third novella of Twain's Tom and Huck Series is a delightful, if unusual, addition to the cannon. Told in Twain's inimitable style, Tom Sawyer Abroad picks up where The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn leaves off, and takes you in an entirely different direction.
