Jim Hawkins, the son of an innkeeper, longs for adventure. When Billy Bones, a guest at the inn, reveals a map showing the wherabouts of Captain Flint's treasure, Jim and his mother outwit both Bones and the pirates who are after him, fleeing with the map to Squire Trelawney. Excitement and heroic action await Jim as he seeks to foil pirates, find the treasure and bring Long John Silver to justice.
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
