This book is an adaptation of the classic novel Treasure Island. Sneaky pirates, sailing ships, buried treasure, exotic lands, and murderous mutiny. What could be better to win over even the most reluctant boy reader? Robert Louis Stevenson serves up thrills, chills, and plenty of action in this timeless, and much-admired adventure novel. This easy to read adaptation is guaranteed to hook beginning readers not yet ready to tackle the original.
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
