Come in, Huck, but doan ' look at his face-it 's too gashly" (Twain 50). If this book would have been easy to read you wouldn 't have to really think about why Jim didn’t want Huck to see the dead body considering throughout the book Huck has seen a few of them.

This is quite the opposite because Jim is protecting Huck from a traumatic experience.
