(AKA Tom Sawyer no Bouken) Based on the well-known and popular novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer is a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River in the mid 1800s. Since the death of their parents, Tom Sawyer and his academic brother Sid have been raised by their Aunt Polly in a small village called Saint Petersburg. Tom is a disobedient boy; he gives his aunt a hard time, ditches school to go fishing in the Mississippi River, climbs trees, and plays pirate games with his friend Huck. Although Tom usually does not attend school, he is quite popular among the pupils; even Tom’s crush, the pretty Becky, grows fond of him. Without a care in the world, Tom leads his friends into adventures; from catching boars or solving murders, there’s never a dull day for the intrepid Tom!
