It was midnight. Tom and his friend Huck Finn were hiding in a dark graveyard, near the grave of the wicked Horse Williams. They were waiting to see if devils would come to take his body away. It was awfully quiet. Suddenly Tom pulled Huck's arm. He had heard voices, and through the trees they saw a light. Someone was coming towards them ... The three men were not devils, but what Tom and Huck saw that night filled them with horror, and led to many more adventures. These, plus running away from home; camping out as pirates on an island in the Mississippi; going to their own funeral; looking for treasure; and getting lost in a deep, dark cave, are all part of the exciting and amusing story of Tom Sawyer and his friends.
