Where are Tom Sawyer and Joe Harper?
St. Petersburg Times
Worried Friends and Additional Boy Missing
Also, there was an additional boy noticed missing this morning named Huck Finn. He has no family, so there will be no funeral for him.
This is the boy that is in love with Becky Thatcher (above).
Tom Sawyer's best friend.
We could find no photos of Finn so we photographed his favorite straw hat.
Interview with Mark Twain
And Now to Twain
Question/Reporter: Now, why did you want to make Tom have a girlfriend in your book? Was it to make the reader feel bad for poor Becky Thatcher when Tom disappeared?
Twain: Technically, Tom and Becky are not together anymore, but yes, sorta. Becky really loves Tom right now, but she doesn't want it to show. When Tom disappeared, I wanted my readers to feel bad for the girl who had lost her first love.
Question/Reporter: That's actually a pretty good idea. Okay, one last question. What is you plan with Muff Potter and Injun Joe?
Twain: Well these two men are not quite what you could say as "buddies." As you've read, Muff Potter was framed by Injun Joe and Potter is falling for it. You can guess that things will not end well for the two of them. If you want to find out what really happened, you'll have to read the rest of my book!
Question/Reporter: Alrighty sir! Again, thank you for answering our questions.
