Tom and Huck have reincarnated as twin white cats, and they're now familiars for a modern-day witch-and, of course, they want to be boys again! This whimsical novel by Lisa Mannetti captures the flavor of Twain's writing, yet brings Tom and Huck to life in a contemporary framework that is utterly delightful!
"Huck always said it was a powerful lot of trouble to write a book, and if he'd a known it ahead of time, he wouldn't have gone through with it. That's his version of the truth, anyhow. And it's a lot more work than anyone bargains for when they sit down to write-but you add writin along with me and Huck comin back as twin brothers and the feline familiars of a twenty-first century witch-and you got even more trouble. A whole cauldron-full more. Anyhow, this time I guess it's me that has got to tell our story."
The Introduction was written by NY Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry. The cover illustration is by artist Safira de Meza of the Netherlands, with cover design by Amy York.
THIS IS THE YOUNG ADULT (YA) EDITION. An Adult edition has also been written that is more suitable for a more mature audience.
"With charming Twain-like wit and style, Lisa Mannetti brings to life an engaging tale that will capture readers' imaginations and take them on the magical ride of their lives. Who wouldn't love feline familiars such as Huck and Tom? I can't recommend this book enough!"
-Elizabeth Massie, Bram Stoker-winning author of Sineater, Playback, and Homegrown
"Lisa doesn't merely throw some witches and werewolves into some of Twain's old lore. She crafts her own story by absconding with two literary icons and dropping them quite unceremoniously in her world. And the way she does it is both mischievous and charming."
-Gef Fox, reviewer for Wag the Fox
"Mannetti weaves a beautiful, heartwarming, and humorous fantasy with the delectable Tom and Huck, but resurrects them with the love and care only a true fan and scholar of Twain could."
