Summary for the Back Cover:
"Fifteen men on a Dead Man's Chest- yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!"
With this sinister natch of piratical song echoing along the English Coast, the mysterious Billy BOnes ushers young Jim Hawkins into an undreamed-of world of danger and adventure on the far-flung, mist-shrounded Treasure Isalnd, And over it all looms the towering shadow of the most famous corsair of them all- the ever-scheming, intirguing, and enigmatic Long John Silver
I really did not like this book. Treasure Island is one classic that did not enjoy. I guess I am not into the pirate thing. The pictures were lovely but the story did not keep my attention it took me four days to finish this book and it was graphic novel that would usually take me a day in a half to read. I kept want to do other things rather than read this book so when I was finish I was actually proud of myself for sticking through it.
Pirates and gold have always been the fascination with young boys so I am sure I will recommend it to my son but for myself I have no intention of reading the original if I could not get into the coloring book.
I rate this book a 1/5
