The Great Illustrated Classics are abridged versions for young readers. Please do not combine with the major work. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Illustrated_Classics. Please do not confuse them with the Illustrated Classics graphic novel adaptations, which are quite different. Thank you.
Climb aboard for the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. Treasure Islandhas enthralled (and caused slight seasickness) for decades. The names Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins are destined to remain pieces of folklore for as long as children want to read Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous book. With it's dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic. --Naomi Gesinger
