About the Author

Mark Twain

Samuel Clemens was born on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri. When he was four years old, his family moved to Hannibal, Missouri, which became his childhood home and the inspiration for many of his stories. He eventually took on the pen name of Mark Twain, and had his first short story published in 1865. His first book, The Innocents Abroad, was published in 1869. Twain wrote many stories and novels but he is best remembered for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. His works were popular during his lifetime, and brought him close to artists, royalty, and presidents. Today, Mark Twain is regarded as one of America’s greatest and best-loved authors.
