Product Description

Review

"It is a breathless journey and the closest thing to a real pirate adventure without an eye patch and a time machine... It is a unique work of genius" (Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl)

"There are few novels which grip so thrillingly as those first read in childhood, and for me none which has quite matched the excitement of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island" (P.D. James)

"Who can think of a pirate without conjuring up the image of Long John Silver?" (Daily Mail)

"So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" (National Association for the Teaching of English)

From the Back Cover

'Fifteen men on the dead man's chest-

Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!'

When young Jim Hawkins discovers a map showing the way to Captain Flint's treasure, he and Squire Trelawney set sail on the Hispaniola to search for the gold. Little do they know that among their crew is the dastardly pirate Long John Silver. Silver has a devious plan to keep the gold all to himself. Can brave Jim outwit the most infamous pirate ever to sail the high seas? Will he escape from Treasure Island alive?

Includes exclusive material: In ‘The Backstory’ you can learn the truth about pirates and add to your seafaring vocabulary!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
in 1950 my grandad bought this book for me, it was the first book I read cover to cover, and recall reading it in bed under the covers with a little torch I had, I was aged 8. now I am a granddad 5 times over, and one of my granddaughters aged 11 now,excels at reading/spelling at school, and last year I asked her if she would like to read the first book I ever read , and surprisingly she said yes. so one of her presents this Christmas was treasure island. last week I asked her if she had started reading it, and the response was an enthusiastic "yes, I am half way already and sometimes I feel I can't stop reading it as I am so into the story" I felt so chuffed when she said this, and the added bonus that she is giving her Ipad a small rest, sometime!!!

thank you Robert Louis Stevenson.
