was five and a half years old when my mother gave me The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as a New Year s giftshe is a literature teacher, and I have been reading novels since the tender age of four or so, and so it seemed appropriate.Being a diligent and serious child neither of those qualities have stuck with me, unfortunately , I opened it to page 1 and started reading I even took it with me to

giftshe is a literature teacher, and I have been reading novels since the tender age of four or so, and so it seemed appropriate.Being a diligent and serious child neither of those qualities have stuck with me, unfortunately , I opened it to page 1 and started reading I even took it with me to kindergarten, where other kids were learning letters and I was mercifully allowed to read hefty tomes, having obviously achieved full literacy by that point Me age 5 and Mom The diligent seriousness is all over this picture This book initially left me quite confused, but I was undeterred after all, the world was a confusing place, full of adults and rules and great books even those without picturesAnd I was very proud to own books without pictures, after all But his one was just too strange its beginning did not quite fit with the rest of the quite fun story it was odd and dry and incomprehensible for the first 40 pages or so, and it even was about some other guySamuel Clemenswho was not Tom Sawyer.A few years later I reread my early childhood favoriteI probably reached a ripe old age of eight or so, still diligent but a bit less serious already It was then that I figured out what seemed strange about the beginning of this book when I was five.You see, I diligently slogged my way through the most boring academic foreword, assuming that was the first chapter What amazes me that I managed to stay awake through it Good job, five year old me Excellent preparation for that painfully boring biochemistry course a couple of decades later After that foreword, slogging through any classic was a comparative breeze Yes, I m looking at you, War and Peace You know what you did, you endless tome.Also, as it turns out, when you include two characters named Joe in one book Injun Joe and Tom s classmate Joe Harper that can cause a certain amount of confusion to a five year old who assumes they have to be the same person and struggles really hard to reconcile their seemingly conflicting characters And, as a side note, I have always been disappointed at Tom Sawyer tricking his friends to do the infamous fence whitewashing A real kid knows after all that painting stuff is fun Five year old me was a bit disapproving of the silliness I have told bits and pieces of this book to my friends on the playground, while dangling from the monkey bars or building sandcastlesin a sandbox, that in retrospect I suspect was used by the neighborhood stray cats as a litterbox but I guess you have to develop immunity to germs somehowWe may have planned an escape to an island in a true Tom Sawyer fashion, but the idea fizzled After all, we did not have an island nearby, which was a problem Also, we may have got distracted by the afternoon cartoons.Someday, I just may have to leave this book within a reach of my future hypothetical daughter as long as I make sure it does not come with a long winded boring introduction Update All we need now is a lost manuscript by Twain to be found by some lawyer with the story being about an adult Tom Sawyer and this book being the one the editor forced Twain to write I know you are probably thinking that is taking Harper Lee s Go Set a Watchman to far, but what if that was just the beginning of a new initiative from publishers It could be the latest fashion now no one is interested in vampires anyWhat happened to Tom after he grew

fashion now no one is interested in vampires anyWhat happened to Tom after he grew up was asked in a review by a friend Thinking back on the times, his character and the author, I ve come up with three possible ideas.1 He became a bank manager and magistrate in a very small town He married Becky and both put on a lot of weight They had no children but three yappy toy spaniels whom they doted on Mas Thomas Sawyer allowed no leeway with naughty boys and the cane was much in use.2 Tom with Huck and Jim found a treasure trove and were given a big reward Aunt Polly invested it until Tom was 21 Tom, Huck and Jim bought a steamboat together, converted it into a casino and plyed the Mississipi offering Black Jack and Jack Daniels at every stop.3 At 18, Tom ran away to New Orleans and took up with a beautiful Creole woman with pale coffee skin and became a preacher in a loudly charismatic church He and his wife had a whole brood of multi coloured kids whom they named for the virtues, Abstinence, Doughty, Chastity, Patience, Industrious and Worship In later life he met Marie Laveau and went to the dark side, a confirmed believer in Voodoo.Or So, my daughter just started reading Tom

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 Tom s 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 She s completely mesmerised, and she hasn t even got to the scary parts yet, or to the budding love affair.There is magic in a children s 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
