The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark TwainSo, my daughter just started reading Tom Sawyer for the very first time, and I am jealous of her!
First of all, she can read it in original, while I read it in translation as a child. Second, I wish I could still have that immediate, surprised response to the silly situations. About every five minutes, she comes into my room, reading out loud some funny quotes, making the scenes come alive in my memory again. The fight between the two boys threatening with their fake big brothers, followed by the famous selling of the honour to take over Toms Saturday chore -the fence white washing, and so on, and so on. All that humorous content is being quoted in a voice broken by giggles. Her favourite new expression is the terms of the next disagreement agreed upon, as used in the context of the deadly serious war games that Tom Sawyer engages in.
Shes completely mesmerised, and she hasnt even got to the scary parts yet, or to the budding love affair.
There is magic in a childrens classic that can make mothers and daughters laugh together at the silliness of naughty boys, and at the fact that very little has changed in the dynamics of childhood friendships, despite the time that has passed since the novel was written.
It has just the right mix of exotic, historical appeal and universal human behaviour to make a perfect introduction into world literature.
