When young Jim Hawkins finds a treasure map in Captain Flint's chest, he must outwit the dead Captain's collaborators if he is to keep it for himself. Only his two companions, Squire Trelawney and Dr. Livesey, share Jim's secret and the three decide to set off on a seafaring adventure in this classic tale of exploits on the high seas.
Climb aboard for the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. Treasure Islandhas enthralled (and caused slight seasickness) for decades. The names Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins are destined to remain pieces of folklore for as long as children want to read Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous book. With it's dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic. --Naomi Gesinger
