A new definitive edition of Stevenson's famous exploration of evil and greed. One of literature's most famous island stories,Treasure Islandhas inspired sequels, adaptations, illustrated editions and motion pictures. This edition offers a clean and corrected text and scholarly annotations where required, all wrapped up in a beautifully produced collector's volume.
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
