Synopsis

Adventures at Sea by Robert Louis Stevenson, Herman Melville, Daniel Defoe

Including Treasure Island, Moby Dick and Robinson Crusoe, Adventures at Sea is a collection of illustrated sea-faring classics retold as exciting and fast-paced graphic novels for young readers, a format which is particularly popular with reluctant readers. Straightforward narratives in modern English accompany key excerpts from the original novels, and difficult words and phrases are explained as they occur. A running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. Specially commissioned, full-colour, dramatic artwork faithfully respresents set-pieces from the plays, and brings excitement and atmosphere to the tales. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling.
