16 original Paul Frame sketches will be on display at the museum. Frame was the artist of over 300 children’s books, and was the author of how-to books such as ‘Drawing Dogs and Puppies’ and ‘Drawing Cats and Kitchens.’ In addition to illustrating ‘Tom Sawyer,’ Frame also professionally illustrated editions of ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ and books in the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series.

The grand opening of the exhibit will be free to the public. The Mark Twain Museum is on the corner of Main and Center in Downtown Hannibal.
