by Stuart Paterson, adapted from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel

A fresh and thrilling adaptation of the classic tale, and one that keeps close to Stevenson's original story. When young Jim Hawkins is left a treasure map by the dying buccaneer Billy Bones, he sets sail on the Hispaniola in search of the island. Among the crew, Long John Silver becomes his greatest friend – but Silver has a shocking secret in store and, when they reach their destination, Jim faces danger and adventure greater than he could ever have imagined.
