A classic tale of heroism, piracy and adventure that has never been equalled – with an introduction by Michael Morpurgo.
I remember him as if it were yesterday, as he came plodding to the inn door, his sea-chest following behind him in a handbarrow.
Young Jim Hawkins is at once terrified and captivated by the rum-soaked sea-dog who takes up lodgings at his father's inn, the Admiral Benbow. But after discovering a treasure map in the sailor’s trunk, Jim embarks on a perilous journey of treachery, heroism and piracy aboard the ship Hispaniola.
