Stevenson''s classic tale is set in the mid-1 700s and narrated by young hero Jim Hawkins. Its fast-moving plot is filled with mysterious maps, shipwrecks, smugglers, mutiny, menacing pirates and a hunt for buried treasure. '
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
