Description


When an old sea captain arrives at the Admiral Benbow inn, with a mysterious sea chest and fearful talk of a man with one leg, the scene is set for one of the most popular adventure stories of all time. Robert Louis Stevenson described Treasure Island as “a book about a map, a treasure, and a mutiny, and a derelict ship, and a fine old Squire Trelawney, and a doctor, and a sea-cook with one leg…” It is that and much more. The characters, from young Jim Hawkins to Long John Silver, have become embedded in popular imagination, and Stevenson’s swashbuckling tale of heroes and villains remains one of the best-loved and most widely read classics of all time. Robert Ingpen, winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, has set his imagination loose on this breathtaking adventure, bringing to life as never before these unforgettable characters and their thrilling escapades.

Praise For…


"In Treasure Island, Stevenson wrote one of the great books of all time, an enduring masterpiece. . . . No edition has ever been better illustrated than this. Ingpen’s drawings are utterly compelling."  —Michael Morpurgo, author,Kensuke's Kingdom
