Book Review of Treasure Island

Treasure Island

Gr. 5-9. This is one of the best in the Storybook Classic series. True to the spirit of Stevenson's timeless writing ability, he captures the bloody action of mutiny on the high seas and the cutthroat quest for hidden treasure. The story is told through the eyes of brave cabin boy Jim, who fights off the murderous pirates and bonds with their one-legged leader, Long John Silver. Driven by the lure of treasure, the book compels the reader to quickly move to the next page. It's the ultimate classical adventure.
