The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Tom Sawyer is a boy who is full of adventures. In his world
there is an adventure around every corner. Some of his adventures have 
lead him into some bad situations but with his good heart and bright 
mind he has gotten out of them. Tom lives with his aunt Polly his 
cousin Mary and his bother Sid. 

One of the first things to happen in the book is a memorable 
one the painting of the fence. Tom's aunt Polly made Tom paint her 
fence on a Saturday as a punishment. Tom just hated the idea of 
having to work on a Saturday while all of the neighborhood could make 
fun of and harass him. After Tom tried to trade some of his
possessions for a few hours of freedom he had a stroke of genius 
instead of him paying people to work for him he made people pay him 
to paint. Tom managed this by telling people that it isn't every day 
that you get a chance to paint a fence and he thought it was fun. He 
had people begging him to paint by the time that he was finished his
story. He would have taken every boy in the town's wealth if he had 
not run out of paint. 

On June 17th about the hour of midnight Tom and his best 
friend Huck were out in the grave yard trying to get rid of warts 
when they witnessed a murder by Injun Joe. At the time Muff Potter was 
drunk and asleep so Injun Joe blamed the murder him (Muff Potter). 
They knew if crazy Injun Joe found out they knew he would for sure 
kill them. Tom wrote on a wooden board "Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer 
swear to keep mum about this and they wish they may drop down dead in 
their tracks if they ever tell and rot" then in their own blood they 
signed their initials TS and HF. 

A few days after that incident Tom Huck and Joe decided to go 
and become pirates because no one cared for their company anymore. 
They stole some food and supplies and then they stole a raft and 
paddled to an island in the middle of the Mississippi River. They 
stayed and pirated for several days then they all became so home sick 
that they could not bear it anymore. The next day Tom Huck and Joe 
showed up for their own funerals and there was much thanks and praise.
