About the Book
The popular classic by R. L. Stevenson has been adapted by the editorial board of V&S Publishers to enrich children with adventurous sea voyages. It happens to be one of the timeless masterpieces of yesteryear writers.

The story begins when Jim, a young boy and protagonist of the story, decides to embark on a sailing ship - the Hispaniola - to trace the treasure supposedly buried in a mysterious island. Along the way, he faces shipwreck, a pirate mutiny, and sword fights. Jim's tale is a rags-to-riches story of a young boy who overcomes the odds.

Treasure Island has been called a "novel of greed," and certainly greed is a minor theme of the book. The chief theme is Jim's quest to bring home something of great value and to gain his own moral adulthood, a treasure in itself.

The tone of the book is essentially suspenseful and tense because of the descriptive details about what's going on. Over the past few years there have been many great classical literatures that have been adapted by V&S Publishers to bring the young readers to these jewels that are ideal for them and their inquisitive minds.

The book comes with illustrations in the purest V&S Publishers' style!

by his friends Doctor Levees and Squire Trelawney to narrate his experiences at the Treasure Island Jim begins his recollections at that time young lim lived at his parents' inn. Admiral Benbow, near Bristol, England, in the eighteenth century. One day, an old and ragged-looking sea captain called Billy Bones comes to stay at the inn. The captain spent much of the time drinking rum, and after a pirate named Black Dog came to see him, he was so nervous that he had a fainting fit. Afterwards, he told fim that Black Dog was after something kept in his sea chest: if he would ever die, he told lim, the boy would find what was in it and follow the instructions inside.

A few days later, Billy Bones died in the inn after being presented with a black spot, or official pirate verdict of guilt or judgment. Jim and his mother unlocked Billy Bones' sea chest, finding some money, a journal, and a map. Their family friend and doctor, Dr. Levees, deduced that the map was of an island where the pirate Flint buried a vast treasure. The district Squire, Trelawney, proposed that they buy a ship and go after the treasure, taking Levees as ship's doctor and Jim as a cabin boy.

That is how the adventures of the Treasure Island began. The Treasure Island was written by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. The book was first published in 1883. Stevenson was born into a family that expected him to continue the family profession of civil engineering. But his ill health kept him from pursuing his studies and instead he began to write, beginning by writing a number of books about travelling through Europe and the United States.
