About This Book

Pirates. Danger. Treasure. It's all here in Stevenson's classic, with a rousing introduction from best-selling author Mary Pope Osbourne.


When Jim Hawkins finds Billy Bones' old pirate map showing a small island marked with a red cross, he knows that a fortune in gold lies waiting for him. What could be more exciting than buried treasure?

Aboard a ship named the Hispaniola, Jim sails toward Treasure Island. The voyage goes well until Jim overhears a frightening conversation. He learns that the one-legged man who signed on as ship's cook is really the famous pirate Long John Silver. And worse — he discovers that the crew are teaming up with Silver to steal the treasure. Can Jim save the gold . . . and save his life?
