'In Treasure Island, Stevenson wrote one of the great books of all time, an enduring masterpiece, and my favourite too. No edition has ever been better illustrated than this. Ingpen's drawings are utterly compelling.' - Michael Morpurgo

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.

Young Jim Hawkins finds a treasure map among the captain's belongings and, accompanied by his friends Doctor Livesey and Squire Trelawney, they set off in search of Captain Flint's buried treasure. They place their trust in the sea cook Long John Silver, little knowing that he is the infamous one-legged man.

As they and a crew of pirates set sail for Treasure Island, mutiny breaks out aboard the Hispaniola, and in the following race to find the treasure, Jim and Long John Silver must face each other in a series of exciting battles of both strength and wits.

A beautiful gift edition, abridged for younger readers.

“Fantastic!”

Originally I bought this book expressly because I enjoy the artwork of Stanley Donwood. I fell in love with the cover, and now I use Waterstones website frequently (I'm American, never heard of it before).

“Swashbuckling adventure.”

This book deserves to be the classic it is. A great adventure book for young readers, with a courageous young hero - even though there's quite a bit of violence. The narratives written by the doctor and the... More
