I think the book was interesting because Tom had a lot of crazy ideas. For example, he made boys from his neighborhood pay for doing very boring work he must have done himself. Also he built a raft and sailed on it with no supervision. I also liked it because it was well written(sometimes). This book is sort of all-over-the-place but can still be understood. This book has some words offensive to dark skinned people.
I'd recommend this book to anyone.

Oh my gosh, I just loved this book!!!!! I'm a huge vocabulary fan, and the words using to describe all of the events in the book are priceless. Like seriously, I started using them, and sometimes my friends can't understand. Honestly, the real definitions are pretty lucid to fathom, and the language is so sumptuous, but sometimes it's strange to have all these big words to describe a child's adventures.
Other than that, I LOVED IT! So happy I got to read it - the storyline is a BIT all over the place, but that's what makes it so much like a child's mind.

A very well written children's book. Excellent vocabulary. The stories are mostly contained within the chapters, which are a good length for bedtime stories.
