Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Chapter 37 Summary

  • Because plotting day-by-day to help a man escape from imprisonment isn't enough to keep these boys occupied, they also play some pranks on Silas and Sally.
  • In an oh-so-comical scene that follows, they continuously steal and replace a spoon while Aunt Sally tries to count how many there are.
  • It's a knee-slappin' good time.
  • While Aunt Sally goes quietly insane, the boys finally get around to baking that witch's pie. They hide a rope ladder in it to give to Jim and pretend the endeavor took nine months.
