In the 1840s, a mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother, Sid, in the fictional Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. After playing hooky from school on Friday and dirtying his clothes in a fight, Tom is made to whitewash the fence as punishment all of the next day. At first, Tom is disheartened by having to forfeit his day off. However, he soon cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He trades the treasures he got by tricking his friends into whitewashing the fence for tickets given out in Sunday school for memorizing Bible verses, which can be used to claim a Bible as a prize. He received enough tickets to be given the Bible. However, in response to a question to show off his knowledge, he incorrectly answers that the first disciples were David and Goliath.<br>

  • Download a Different Copy

    By take_ninetynine
    Story is great—but you won’t get to read the whole thing with this download. Starting with Chapter 26 or so it goes back and reprints previous chapters, and it isn’t corrected until around 29. A bunch of the story is missing as a result.
  • Bad transcription

    By IReadTooManyBooks
    Chapters 25-28 have the wrong text in them, repeating text from earlier in the book. Various bits of formatting, like italics and font differences, are missing.

  • Missing chapters

    By Have-a Juan-derful Day
    This version of the book was missing a few chapters and repeats past chapters.
  • Missing and repeated chapters!

    By Geisha Pupe
    A terrible way to mess up a fine classic, this here ebook is. Scandalous!
  • Not complete. Missing 2 chapters.... maybe more.

    By Wants to finish a book
    The book is a real treat and this poor review is only for who ever put this copy of the book online. All is well till chapter 25 where it all gets messed up, because it starts back over with old chapters you've already read. It'll get back on track at chapter 27, but it's skipped over the two missed chapters and you are left in the dark. Garbage. I had to go find another copy to finish the book.
  • What the...?

    By David9654433
    This download on my iPhone replaced several chapters beginning at chapter 25 with a reprint of chapters 15 and up. I had to find another complete version online to understand the story. In other words chapters 25-29 were missing from this iBook.
  • Chapters Missing

    By diving santa
    I wish I had read the reviews before spending time with this version. All was good until chapter 25, which is a repeat of 15. 16 and 17 were repeated in 26 & 27. I stopped validating after that, and can’t speak for any other flaws mentioned by other reviewers. I’ll get a different version elsewhere. My question now is, why hasn’t this been corrected or this version pulled from availability??? I think it is a disgrace to the iBooks store
  • Bad transcription

    Chapters 23 to 26 were a repeat of earlier chapters, the haunted house and discovery of the treasure is missing.
