that boy, I wonder You TOM No answer.The old lady pulled her spectacles down and looked over them, about the room then she put them up and looked out under them She seldom or never looked through them for so small a thing as a boy they were her state pair, the pride of her heart, and were built for style, not service she could have seen through a pair of stove lids just as well She looked perplexed for a moment, and then said, not fiercely, but still loud enough for the furniture to hear Well, I lay if I get hold of you I ll She did not finish, for by this time she was bending down and punching under the bed with the broom and so she needed breath to punctuate the punches with She resurrected nothing but the cat.I never did see the beat of that boy She went to the open door and stood in it and looked out among the tomato vines and jimpson weeds that constituted the garden No Tom So she lifted up her voice, at an angle calculated for distance, and shouted Y o u u Tom There was a slight noise behind her and she turned just in time to seize a small boy by the slack of his roundabout and arrest his flight.There I might a thought of that closet What you been doing in there Nothing.Nothing Look at your hands And look at your mouth What is that truck I don t know, aunt.Well I know It s jam that s what it is Forty times I ve said if you didn t let that jam alone I d skin you Hand me that switch.The switch hovered in the air the peril was desperate My Look behind you, aunt The old lady whirled around, and snatched her skirts out of danger The lad fled, on the instant, scrambled up the high board fence, and disappeared over it.His aunt Polly stood surprised a moment, and then broke into a gentle laugh.Hang the boy, can t I never learn anything Ain t he played me tricks enough like that for me to be looking out for himby this time But old fools isthe biggest fools there is Can t learn an old dog new tricks, as the saying is But my goodness, he never plays them alike, two days, and how is a body to know what s coming He pears to know just how long he can torment me before I get my dander up, and he knows if he can make out to put me off for a minute or make me laugh, it s all down again and I can t hit him a lick I ain t doing my duty by that boy, and that s the Lord s truth, goodness knows Spare the rod and spile the child, as the Good Book says I m a laying up sin and suffering for us both, I know He s full of the Old Scratch, but laws a me he s my own dead sister s boy, poor thing, and I ain t got the heart to lash him, somehow Every time I let him off my conscience does hurt me so, and every time I hit him my old heart most breaks Well a well, man that is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble, as the Scripture says, and I reckon it s so He ll play hookey this evening, and I ll just be obleeged to make him work, to morrow, to punish him It s mighty hard to make him work Saturdays, when all the boys is having holiday, but he hates work than he hates anything else, and I ve got to do some of my duty by him, or I ll be the ruination of the child.Tom did play hookey, and he had a very good time He got back home barely in season to help Jim, the small colored boy, saw next day s wood and split the kindlings, before supper at least he was there in time to tell his adventures to Jim while Jim did three fourths of the work Tom s younger brother, or rather, half brother Sid, was already through with his part of the work picking up chips, for he was a quiet boy and had no adventurous, troublesome ways.While Tom was eating his supper, and stealing sugar as opportunity offered, aunt Polly asked him questions that were full of guile, and very deep for she wanted to trap him into damaging revealments Like many other simple hearted souls, it was her pet vanity to believe she was endowed with a talent for dark and mysterious diplomacy and she loved to contemplate her most transparent devices as marvels of low cunning Said she Tom, it was middling warm in school, warn t it Yes m.Powerful warm, warn t it Yes m.Didn t you want to go in a swimming, Tom A bit of a scare shot through Tom a touch of uncomfortable suspicion He searched aunt Polly s face, but it told him nothing So he said No m well, not very much.The old lady reached out her hand and felt Tom s shirt, and said But you ain t too warm now, though And it flattered her to reflect that she had discovered that the shirt was dry without anybody knowing that that was what she had in her mind But in spite of her, Tom knew where the wind lay, now So he forestalled what might be the next move Some of us pumped on our heads mine s damp yet See Aunt Polly was vexed to think she had overlooked that bit of circumstantial evidence, and missed a trick Then she had a new inspiration Tom, you didn t have to undo your shirt collar where I sewed it to pump on your head, did you Unbutton your jacket The trouble vanished out of Tom s face He opened his jacket His shirt collar was securely sewed.Bother Well, go long with you I d made sure you d played hookey and been a swimming But I forgive ye, Tom I reckon you re a kind of a singed cat, as the saying is better n you look This time.She was half sorry her sagacity had miscarried, and half glad that Tom had stumbled into obedient conduct for once.But Sidney said Well, now, if I didn t think you sewed his collar with white thread, but it s black.Why, I did sew it with white Tom But Tom did not wait for the rest As he went out at the door he said Siddy, I ll lick you for that.In a safe place Tom examined two large needles which were thrust into the lappels of his jacket, and had thread bound about them one needle carried white thread and the other black He said She d never noticed, if it hadn t been for Sid Consound it sometimes she sews it with white and sometimes she sews it with black I wish to geeminy she d stick to one or t other I can t keep the run of em But I bet you I ll lam Sid for that I ll learn him He was not the Model Boy of the village He knew the model boy very well though and loathed him.Within two minutes, or even less, he had forgotten all his troubles Not because his troubles were one whit less heavy and bitter to him than a man s are to a man, but because a new and powerful interest bore them down and drove them out of his mind for the time just as men s misfortunes are forgotten in the excitement of new enterprises This new interest was a valued novelty in whistling, which he had just acquired from a negro, and he was suffering to practice it undisturbed It consisted in a peculiar bird like turn, a sort of liquid warble, produced by touching the tongue to the roof of the mouth at short intervals in the midst of the music the reader probably remembers how to do it if he has ever been a boy Diligence and attention soon gave him the knack of it, and he strode down the street with his mouth full of harmony and his soul full of gratitude He felt much as an astronomer feels who has discovered a new planet No doubt, as far as strong, deep, unalloyed pleasure is concerned, the advantage was with the boy, not the astronomer.The summer evenings were long It was not dark, yet Presently Tom checked his whistle A stranger was before him a boy a shade larger than himself A new comer of any age or either sex was an impressive curiosity in the poor little shabby village of St Petersburg This boy was well dressed, too well dressed on a week day This was simply astounding His cap was a dainty thing, his close buttoned blue cloth roundabout was new and natty, and so were his pantaloons He had shoes on and yet it was only Friday He even wore a necktie, a bright bit of ribbon He had a citified air about him that ate into Tom s vitals The Tom stared at the splendid marvel, the higher he turned up his nose at his finery and the shabbier and shabbier his own outfit seemed to him to grow Neither boy spoke If one moved, the other moved but only sidewise, in a circle they kept face to face and eye to eye all the time Finally Tom said I can lick you I d like to see you try it.Well, I can do it.No you can t, either.Yes I can.No you can t.I can.You can t.Can Can t An uncomfortable pause Then Tom said What s your name Tisn t any of your business, maybe.Well I low I ll make it my business.Well why don t you If you say much I will.Much much much There now.Oh, you think you re mighty smart, don t you I could lick you with one hand tied behind me, if I wanted to.Well why don t you do it You say you can do it.Well I will, if you fool with me.Oh yes I ve seen whole families in the same fix.Smarty You think you re some, now, don t you Oh what a hat You can lump that hat if you don t like it I dare you to knock it off and anybody that ll take a dare will suck eggs.You re a liar You re another.You re a fighting liar and dasn t take it up.Aw take a walk Say if you gimme much of your sass I ll take and bounce a rock off n your head.Oh, of course you will.Well I will.Well why don t you do it then What do you keep saying you will, for Why don t you do it It s because you re afraid.I ain t afraid.You are.I ain t.You are.Another pause, and eyeing and sidling around each other Presently they were shoulder to shoulder Tom said Get away from here Get away yourself I won t.I won t either.So they stood, each with a foot placed at an angle as a brace, and both shoving with might and main, and glowering at each other with hate But neither could get an advantage After struggling till both were hot and flushed, each relaxed his strain with watchful caution, and Tom said You re a coward and a pup I ll tell my big brother on you, and he can thrash you with his little finger, and I ll make him do it, too.What do I care for your big brother I ve got a brother that s bigger than he is and what s , he can throw him over that fence, too Both brothers were imaginary That s a lie.Your saying so don t make it so.Tom drew a line in the dust with his big toe, and said I dare you to step over that, and I ll lick you till you can t stand up Anybody that ll take a dare will steal a sheep.The new boy stepped over promptly, and said Now you said you d do it, now let s see you do it.Don t you crowd me, now you better look out.Well you said you d do it why don t you do it By jingo for two cents I will do it.The new boy took two broad coppers out of his pocket and held them out with derision Tom struck them to the ground In an instant both boys were rolling and tumbling in the dirt, gripped together like cats and for the space of a minute they tugged and tore at each other s hair and clothes, punched and scratched each other s noses, and covered themselves with dust and glory Presently the confusion took form, and through the fog of battle Tom appeared, seated astride the new boy and pounding him with his fists.Holler nuff said he.The boy only struggled to free himself He was crying, mainly from rage.Holler nuff and the pounding went on.At last the stranger got out a smothered Nuff and Tom let him up and said Now that ll learn you Better look out who you re fooling with, next time.The new boy went off brushing the dust from his clothes, sobbing, snuffling, and occasionally looking back and shaking his head and threatening what he would do to Tom the next time he caught him out To which Tom responded with jeers, and started off in high feather and as soon as his back was turned the new boy snatched up a stone, threw it and hit him between the shoulders and then turned tail and ran like an antelope Tom chased the traitor home, and thus found out where he lived He then held a position at the gate for some time, daring the enemy to come outside, but the enemy only made faces at him through the window and declined At last the enemy s motherappeared, and called Tom a bad, vicious, vulgar child, and ordered him away So he went away but he said he lowed to lay for that boy.He got home pretty late, that night, and when he climbed cautiously in at the window, he uncovered an ambuscade, in the person of his aunt and when she saw the state his clothes were in her resolution to turn his Saturday holiday into captivity at hard labor became adamantine in its firmness.Grade 5 Up Lapointe has colorfully illustrated various scenes from Twain s original story with

allowing for a comfortable print size Almost every page has at least one illustration and there are several double page spreads The only drawback to this version is that youngsters who are not familiar with the story may find the abundance of captioned illustrations in their myriad styles, formats, and colors distracting However, for those who already know the story or are studying it in
