At first they laughed at him. But soon they all wanted to paint the fence. Billy Fisher gave Tom a kite and Johnny Miller bought him a dead rat. His other friends gave him an old knife, a cat with one eye, an old blue bottle, and an old key and other interesting things.
His friends painted the fence and Tom now had a lot of interesting things. He went back home. Tom wore his clean Sunday clothes — he hated this! Tom, Sid and Mary always went to Sunday school on Sunday morning. But Tom was not a good student and never listened to the teacher. After Sunday school Tom and his family went to the church. This Sunday he had a big black beetle in his pocket. When the Reverend started speaking, Tom took the black beetle out of his pocket.
He put I on the floor. There was a little dog in the church. It saw the beetle and wanted to play with it. The little dog barked and everyone looked at it. It jumped and ran after the black beetle. It ran all about the church barking and making a lot of noise. The people in the church laughed silently. Their faces were red. The Reverend continued talking but no one listened to him.
Tom was happy because he had an interesting morning in church. On Monday morning Ton did not want to get up. On his way to school he met his friend Huckleberry Finn. Huck had no mother and no home.
He lived in the streets and did not go to school. His clothes were old and dirty. He went fishing and swimming when he wanted. Huck was happy. All the mothers of the village hated him because he was lazy and used bad language. All the children of the town liked him very much. They admired him. Hopkins told me. Or are you afraid of ghosts? Of course not! Why are you late again? She had blue eyes and long blonde hair. She was very beautiful. Tom looked at her. He was in love!
There was a free chair next to her and Tom wanted to sit there. But how? The children laughed at Tom. Tom sat down next to the new girl. He looked at her. Then he drew a picture of a house. Tom put the picture in front of her. Tom drew a man near the house.
It was a terrible picture, but the girl liked it. I know your name. Sid was soon asleep but Tom was not. He dressed quickly and went out of the bedroom window. He had his dead cat. Tom and Huck walked down the dark road. They walked for about half an hour. The graveyard was on a hill. There were a lot of trees and a lot of graves; everything was dark and scary. The win made strange noises and dark clouds covered the moon. He was afraid but he said nothing. They soon found the grave. Look over there, Huck!
Oh, no! The three ghosts moved quietly in the graveyard. They came close to Tom and Huck. One of them is Muff Potter. But why are they here? They want to rob a grave. My father told me about Dr.
Injun Joe and Muff Potter started digging. Soon the grave was open. They found the dead body and pulled it out of the ground.
I asked you for something to eat. You gave me nothing. I still remember that. Now you must give me more money. Injun Joe fell to the ground. Muff and Dr. Robinson started fighting. Everything happened very quickly. Robinson hit Muff Potter on the head.
Muff fell to the ground. He saw Muff on the ground and he killed Dr. Robinson with the knife. The doctor fell on top of Muff and covered him with blood. Injun Joe looked at the two men on the ground. First he robbed the dead doctor. A few minutes passed and Muff moved a little and opened his eyes. He looked at the knife in his hand. Why did you killed him?
Tell me, Joe. What happened? He hit you on the head and you fell to the ground. I never foughtwith a knife. He was young and he had a future. Oh, this is terrible! But now you must leave this graveyard quickly. Tom and Huck were terrified.
It was a terrible scene. They silently moved away from the trees. Then they ran out of the graveyard and back to the village. They arrived at an old house and decided to hide there.
Injun Joe killed the doctor. Do you want a knife in your heart? He put Muff in St. Tom and Huck looked at each other. Remember, Injun Joe is dangerous — very dangerous. Tom could not forget. At night he had bad dreams about Injun Joe and Juff Potter. He kept the terrible secret but he was very unhappy. Aunt Polly was worried about him. She gave him a lot of different medicines. But Tom did not feel better.
He was unhappy at school too. Tom and his friend Joe Harper went to the Mississippi River. They fished, talked and looked at the boats. We can be a pirate. It was about three miles south of St. No one lived on the island. Go home and bring some food. At midnight the three boys met on the river.
Tom brought some meat to eat. Joe brought some bread and Huck brought a frying pan. When they arrive on the island they made a fire and cooked some meat. They three boys were happy and slept under the stars. The next morning they went swimming in the river. Then they went fishing. They cooked the fish on the fire and ate it.
It was delicious. After breakfast they walked around the island and went swimming again. In the afternoon they sat around the fire and ate some meat. They ran to the river. They saw a steamboat and a lot of small boats near it.
They think we drowned! Petersburg are looking for us. This was an exciting adventure for Tom, Huck and Joe! The boats and the steamboat went away. They boys went fishing again and had fish for dinner. Then they slept under the stars. But Tom could not sleep. I thought about Aunt Polly. So I went home but no one saw me. And your mother was very sad too.
I heard some interesting things. Huck and Joe looked at him with big eyes. They liked it and laughed. Sunday was the day of the funeral. There were no happy faces in St. Everyone in the village was in the small church. The Reverend said many kind words about the three boys. Becky Thatcher cried. Everyone cried a lot.
Suddenly there was a noise at the church door. The Reverend looked up and stopped speaking. Everyone in the church turned around and looked. Their mouths opened. The three dead boys slowly walked into the church. Tom was first, then Joe and then Huck.
There was great silent for a moment. They kissed Tom and Joe. Aunt Polly cried and then laughed. Poor Huck did not know what to do.
No one kissed him. He started moving away but Tom stopped him. Tom was very proud of his great idea. It was a very happy day. Everyone in the village talked about it. Tom and Huck were worried.
Once he gave me half a fish. They went to the small jail and they saw Muff. He was happy to see them. Thank you, boys! Now Tom felt terrible. He was worried about the trial. He could not sleep at night. Muff looked old, tired and unhappy. Injun Joe was at the trial too. During the trial there were many questions and answers. All the answers were against old Muff.
Why did the lawyer call Tom Sawyer? Tom told his story and people of St. Petersburg listen to him. They were very surprised. Injun Joe jumped out of the window and disappeared! Tom became the hero of St. At night he had terrible dreams about Injun Joe.
The days passed and no one could find Injun Joe. And Tom did too. One hot summer day he told Huck about his idea. We can start digging under the old tree on Cardiff Hill.
Come on! It was a hot day and they dug for a few hours.
Nobody lives there. They went to the haunted house. It was an old, lonely place. There was silence all around. They were both afraid of this strange place.
