Childhood Revisited

It has been MANY years since I first read this story. I found myself reading this straight thru and enjoying the illustrations.

Everyman / Peake edition great for adults

This was my first look at a Treasure Island illustrated by Mervyn Peake (Everyman's Children's Classics), and though I gave this as a gift I would purchase another for myself. High quality edition in every respect, with evocative illustrations. For reading to a child, a larger print / larger size edition might be better, and a child might prefer the N.C. Wyeth iillustrations, which are also masterful.

A True Classic

Young lad, Jim Hawkins, narrates this tale of high seas adventure, talk of mutiny, buried treasure and pirates. A great timeless classic. And that fearsome pirate, Long John Silver, as sinister and troublesome as ever.

I introduced my sons to Stevenson when they were merely boys. A Child's Garden of verses, Dr. Jekel and Mr. Hyde and Kidnapped.... An exceptional and creative writer.
A very nice edition to any home library...
