The classic children's tale--featuring young Jim Hawkins and the villainous Long John Silver, pirates and a mutiny at sea, treachery and a search for buried treasure--is captured afresh in strikingly lifelike oil paintings and pen-and-ink illustrations.
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
