Mark Twain is a master of adventure, mystery, and wit. This collection, containing three tales of mystery, offers a healthy dose of each-and more! In Tom Sawyer, Detective, a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Tom Sawyer Abroad, take a ride down the Mississippi to Uncle Silas' farm. Mark Twain's satirical take on the immensely popular detective novels of the time provides enough twists and turns to satisfy any avid mystery fan. In "The Stolen White Elephant," Mark Twain is a character in his own story! Listeners will delight in this tale of an Indian elephant getting lost in New Jersey-and the hunt that ensues. Finally, in "A Double-Barreled Detective Story," Sherlock Holmes comes to America! When the legendary detective finds himself in the American West, his extraordinary skills and scientific methods are called upon once more.
Twain's biting satire, cunning wit, and provocative mysteries will entertain listeners of all ages.
"[Twain's] service as delightful entertainment to generations of American youngsters is equaled only by his influence on such twentieth-century admirers as Gertrude Stein, William Faulkner, and Ernest Hemingway."-Masterpieces of World Literature
