TOM SAWYER ABROAD by Mark Twain (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). The irrepressible Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn have some brand new adventures when they go to see the unveiling of a futuristic airship, only to be kidnapped by its mad inventor and sent on a journey across the world. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio's Audie® Award-winning narrator Grover Gardner.

Tom and Huck have both ranged the length of the Mississippi, but, as Huck declares, “Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures?….No, he wasn't. It only just pisoned him for more.” So the two boys head off to see the unveiling of a futuristic airship—only to be kidnapped by its mad inventor! But when the inventor goes overboard in a storm, it’s up to Tom and Huck to take control of the airship as it heads out over the seething ocean toward the unknown. Yonder they will encounter robbers, lions, Bedouins, and the perils of the Sahara in their very own Arabian adventure.
