Relive one of the greatest adventure stories of all time in this stunning, unabridged edition featuring bold, dynamic woodcuts by John Lawrence. Fifteen men on a dead man's chest-yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! A treasure map where X marks the spot, a schooner set to sail, a one-legged seaman with a parrot on his shoulder, a boy whose bravery will be tested by murder, mutiny, and betrayal - Robert Louis Stevenson's well-loved tale is the ultimate swashbuckling adventure. Sweeping a path from the sleepy English coast, to the raging high seas, to a tropical island concealing a buried treasure, this story of friendship and greed, loyalty and courage stars an unforgettable cast of characters: young Jim Hawkins, the terrifying Blind Pew, the wild man Ben Gunn, and one of literature's most dastardly villains, the charming, crafty, and utterly unscrupulous Long John Silver. Superbly illustrated by the celebrated John Lawrence, this is the definitive edition of an enduring classic.

Review:

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
