All this and more is captured in stories such as Tom is dying!, Tom is both happy and sad, How Tom whitewashed the fence, New medicine for Tom, Tom and Huck are very much afraid!, The pirates are homesick, The secret visit, Tom is in trouble, The funeral service, The haunted house, and Tom and Huck dig for treasure.
