Theme: The theme of this novel by Mark Twain is "Be honest and say the truth, even if it can cause you trouble, since if not, it can lead to situations worse than it wouldv'e been I think this is the theme since Tom and Huck were planning to keep what they witnessed, which was the murder of Dr. Robinson a secret since it could leave them in danger. If they hadn't told the truth, Muff Potter would be hung for a crime he did not commit and let the real culprit roam no punishments. This supports that the theme of this novel by Mark Twain is "Be honest and say the truth, even if it can cause you trouble, since if not, it can lead to situations worse than it wouldv'e been.
