Wrestling with Tom Sawyer
There’s no one under the sun like Tom Sawyer!
Preparations are underway for the monthly party, “Bare Feet and a Straw Hat Never Hurt anybody, an evening with Mark Twain.” The gang agrees that Tom Sawyer should be brought into the Real World. He’d be a refreshing change after Captain Ahab and Lady D’ Winter—much easier to handle. However, upon arrival, Tom immediately picks a fight with Walter, falls in love with Ophelia, and continuously attempts to one-up Linus. When Ophelia is kidnapped, Tom is determined to save her, just like he did with Becky Thatcher. But the clock is ticking…
Praise for the series:
“A fantasy steeped in classic literature…narrator Bartholomew Inkster brings Lemony Snicket–like irony to frame the story.…References to literature throughout the narrative make this a feast for middle-grade book lovers. Kids who like quirky adventure stories with idiosyncratic characters will enjoy a simpler kind of fun.” – Publishers Weekly
Praise for Saving Moby Dick
…Generously infused with animating elements of mystery, romance and comedy—plus a particularly lively and diverse supporting cast of grown-ups. -Kirkus
