Mark Twain, like many of the authors in this section, is more well-known for, perhaps, what could be considered The Great American Novel: Huckleberry Finn. Twain practically invented stand-up comedy with his lecture series, and made colloquial diction acceptable in literature. And he also dabbled in the fantasy type of time travel—wherein the character moves to different places and times with no scientific explanation—in this story. Only read the first six chapters, and have fun with the illustrations!
