TREASURE ISLANDROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON Book Number: 94106 Product format: Hardback
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen the well-renowned artist and author in the most glorious full page colour artworks showing historical details like the quayside, hauling a sailor back on board (his trousers dropping!), playing and fighting and lost at sea, capturing all the mystery of the sea chest and a secret pirate treasure map. When an old ship's captain arrives at the sleepy Admiral Benbow Inn, young Jim Hawkins soon finds himself in the middle of one of the greatest adventure stories of all time. A ship named the Hispaniola is fitted out for the voyage, and a crew is engaged to find the treasure and bring it home, but some of the crew have other intentions for the treasure and their loyalties lie not with the honest Captain Smollett, but with the fearsome cook, a one-legged pirate called Long John Silver. Jim soon finds himself in a race to find the treasure, save the lives of his friends, wrest control of the ship from the hands of the pirates, and apprehend the villains. But when he is gravely injured, it is Long John Silver who's the only man who stands between Jim and certain death. Can the bonds of friendship, so convincingly betrayed, still be strong enough to pierce the black heart of so ruthless a man? The book still excites and enthrals readers of all ages as it has done for the last 150 years with all its adaptations on stage and film. Gloriously illustrated complete and unabridged edition bringing these characters to life as never before. 192pp, 19.7 x 23.5cm, perfect for all swashbuckling pirates young and old. Complete with satin bookmark, a glorious gift edition.
