SYNOPSIS: Reluctant to attend school, Tom goes to dramatic lengths in faking an illness – but all for nothing. He stops to talk with Huckleberry Finn on the way to school; Huck is carrying around a dead cat (an essential piece for an incantation to remove warts) and the two boys pledge to try out the incantation that very evening.
