Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Tagalog thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of A Connecticut Yankee by Mark Twain was edited for three audiences. The first includes Tagalog-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Tagalog speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Tagalog in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Tagalog Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Tagalog or English.

**Performed by 2001 Grammy-nominated Carl Reiner, nominated for his spoken work performance of Mark Twain's Letters from Earth. **From the Inside Flap:
This novel tells the story of Hank Morgan, the quintessential self-reliant New Englander who brings to King Arthur's Age of Chivalry the "great and beneficent" miracles of nineteenth-century engineering and American ingenuity. Through the collision of past and present, Twain exposes the insubstantiality of both utopias, destroying the myth of the romantic ideal as well as his own era's faith in scientific and social progress.
A central document in American intellectual history, "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is at once a hilarious comedy of anachronisms and incongruities, a romantic fantasy, a utopian vision, and a savage, anarchic social satire that only one of America's greatest writers could pen.
