The Lovereading4Kids comment
Michael Foreman’s stunning illustrations brilliantly capture the fast-paced action and drama of Stevenson’s classic, of high seas adventure, mysterious maps, peg-legged pirates and fabulous buried treasure that has sparked children’s imaginations for generations. How difficult it must have been for Foreman to select the parts of the story to illustrate !
There’s even an absolutely brilliant Foreword to the book by Michael Morpurgo that imagines a meeting between Michael Foreman and the great Robert Louis Stevenson to discuss the illustrations you see within the covers! An added bit of brilliance to an already brilliant edition of a timeless classic.
Michael Foreman's Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, Michael Morpurgo
The classic story of high-seas adventure is brought stunningly to life by hugely popular illustrator Michael Foreman. This is the book that brought pirates into the popular imagination with its villain/hero, the peg-legged captain Long John Silver. Fabulous jewel-filled chests, treasure maps marked with X's, pirates with parrots and eye-patches - it is all here!
From Michael Morpurgo: "This was the first real book I read for myself. I lived this book as I read it."
