Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn have both ranged the length of the Mississippi-but those adventures were nothing compared to this!

Tom and Huck go to see the unveiling of an experimental airship...only to be kidnapped by the ship's murderous inventor, who plans to fly around the world and then crash in flames-taking Tom and Huck with him! When the madman falls overboard in an Atlantic storm, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are trapped on an out-of-control airship, headed through the dangers of the ocean, toward the perils of the endless Sahara!

When Tom, Huck Finn, and Jim go to see the unveiling of an experimental airship, they are kidnapped by the inventor, who plans to fly around the world and crash the ship in flames. But when the madman falls overboard during an Atlantic storm, Tom and his friends are left to their own devices on the out-of-control airship. Complete and unabridged. A Tor Classic.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Few today may be aware of Twain's 1894 sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884). Though this novel is not up to the standard of those two immortal classics, it does make for fun listening as it places Tom, Huck, and former slave Jim in a fantastic balloon voyage across the Atlantic and North Africa. Of special interest is the narrative's frequent allusions to Richard Francis Burton's Arabian Nights. Great literature this is not, but it does contain some nice moments, and younger readers in particular will enjoy listening to actor/director/narrator Grover Gardner's (grovergardner.blogspot.com) delightful performance. [A boxed set collecting this recording together with Gardner's readings of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Tom Sawyer, Detective, will be available from Blackstone Audio in August.—Ed.]—R. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA
