Read full description of the books:
Romaani tegevus toimub 16. sajandi Inglismaal. Ühel ja samal päeval sünnivad kaks poissi - vaeste kehvikute Canty'de pere suureneb veel ühe liikme, Tomi võrra, Inglismaa kuningakojas sünnib aga troonipärija Edward Tudor. Tomi lapsepõlv möödub Londoni tänavatel, kuid ta unistab paremast elust. Ühel päeval lossiväravate ees jalutades märkab ta õues jalutavat printsi. Prints kutsub Tomi enda juurde ning märgates nende omavahelist sarnastust, tärkab tal mõte vahetada kerjuspoisiga riided, et oma alamaid paremini tundma õppida. Nii lahkubki prints lossist kerjuseks riietatuna, aimamata millised raskused teda ees ootavad.

Read information about the authorSamuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.
He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.
Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
Excerpted from Μαρκ Τουαίν (Greek)
