Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

by Mark Twain

It is a widespread belief that boys who are stubborn to the extreme might end up becoming public nuisances. However, this is not the case of our hero Huckleberry whose pranks only prepare him for a life of ability in the future.Tom Sawyer had a friend in real life who had all or most of all the features of Huckleberry and the last time we see that friend in his essays, that friend was already the mayor of a little fishing town in mississipi. I write as an objective commentator from the yaba area of Lagos state and i as a matter of fact know a lot of boys in the neighbourhood who have the traits of our little hero.
In a society where ills cannot be construed into good, what we have is a rot that spurts from necessarily not rotten roots. In every stubborn boy, there is a brave leader!
