I am so happy that I decided to purchase this book. My 8 year-old son and I have made a commitment to read each night, for at least 20 minutes. I decided to start with American classics. We are enjoying this book so much! There is some material in the book that requires explanations but to me, that provides me with teachable moments and conversation starters. This book is helping us discuss many aspects of American history and some serious social issues, not to mention that my son loves making references to things in the book that only he and I understand. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for an enjoyable read, whether you're reading as a family or not.

This is a good introduction to Mark Twain for kids 7-10. Much of the original language is lost in the retelling, as are the finer points of character development, but the basic narrative is maintained and flows in such a way that 2 or 3 hours of sustained reading is enough to digest it. Every Classic Starts out there has something to offer and represents yet another stone laid in the foundation of a child's early literary education.

A great story . . . and a book written so as to be easily read and understood for a child in the age range for sure of
7-12.

I bought this for my 8 yr old grandson and he could hardly put the book down. I highly recommend for young boys.

I thought I purchased the real Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. I did not like the fact that it was a "rewritten" version and I don't think this was made very clear. I woulo have not purchased it if I had known this. I was very disappointed and will probably send this back.

I think this remarkable story is the story of many people now and present. I was just commenting to a friend of mine (I am 69 years old) that if you had had an experience like this as a lad no matter what you did later in life (no matter how successful or wealthy you became), nothing could ever live up to an adventure like that.

I have read the story several times, but wanted my own book. That is why I was so dissapointed that it was a retold version with another author.

I dIdn't know it was a child's version of the book. For what it is, it is great. We will still read it.
