The story follows Jim Hawkins – a young lad bequeathed a treasure map and the chance to save his mother from a life of poverty. Setting out with the bluff local squire and the sensible doctor, Jim enlists the help of a charismatic sea-cook – a former sailor confined to shore due to his wooden leg, who bears the infamous name of “Long John Silver”.
Long-John helps to recruit a crew of motley sailors, and they soon set sail on a secret course to the mysterious ‘Treasure Island’, but can they make it there in one piece? and will they discover the ‘pieces-of-eight’ that lie buried at the end of their journey? One thing is certain – fantastic adventures will be faced and endured before the tale is out!
