Quotes

  • “I don’t know of a more gripping tale of derring-do on the high seas, with its desperate search for hidden gold on a tropical island.”

    - Independent (London)
  • “Like the best of children’s literature, then and now, Treasure Island looks to lure its young readers into the adult world, not to cosset them from it. For all the violence, Jim learns to be brave and resourceful, to stand up to bullies, to keep his word, to help his impoverished mother, to deal with loss and betrayal. He learns not to trust strangers and even to be merciful.”

    - New York Times
  • “Climb aboard for the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime…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.”

    - Amazon.com
  • “Treasure Island…must have been the first book I ever read from start to finish, with unforgettable characters, Long John Silver, Blind Pew, Ben Gunn...The Black Spot still terrifies me.”

    - Sting, multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and musician
  • “Treasure Island is a vision not only of white skeletons but also green palm trees and sapphire seas.”

    - G. K. Chesterton, author of the Father Brown mysteries
