Overview

Tom Brown's School Days: Classics Illustrated #45 by Thomas Hughes, William B. Jones

Tom Brown's Schooldays still appeals to modern readers. Like modern young adults, Tom and the other boys at Rugby suffer pangs of separation from family, stand up against peer bullies, ponder the ambiguities of friendship and the finality of death, and gradually assume adult responsibilities. Tom is no saint; like his American contemporary Huckleberry Finn, he gets into trouble with authority.  Beautifully illustrated, this classic tale will capture children's interest and spark their imagination inspiring a lifelong love of literature and reading.

About the Author

Thomas Hughes was an English lawyer, politician, and author best known for his semi-autobiographical classic Tom Brown’s School Days. Trained as a lawyer, Hughes was appointed a county-court judge before being elected to the British Parliament. Hughes was also a committed social reformer, and was one of the founders and later principal of Working Men’s College. His interest in social structures led him to become involved with the model village, and he later founded a settlement that experimented with utopian life in Tennessee. In addition to Tom Brown, Hughes penned The Scouring of the White Horse, Tom Brown at Oxford, Life of Alfred the Great, and Memoir of a Brother. He died in 1896.
