Book Question

What do you think this excerpt is from?

Mary took him in hand, and when she was done with him, he was a man and a brother...

No, you pervs! It's not from an aydolt novel... it's a kid's book.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Now I've got to go read the book again. Where
was the line from exactly?

It's taken entirely out of context from Chapter Four, when Tom is washing up, or trying to, for Sunday School. The paragraph begins, "Tom was a trifle disconcerted."

I was thinking some sort of Bad Example Family Blogmeet :-)

For some reason I was thinking Huck Finn. I loved those books, at least I got the author right.
