Treasure Island

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The themes of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel “Treasure Island”; loyalty, adventure, morality and especially coming of age, make it ideal for “Classics Illustrated Deluxe.”

Stevenson’s riveting tale has become more and more influential over the years; serving as the basis for such popular portrayals of piracy as one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders, treasure maps where an “X” marks the spot, to the specific style we thing of when imagining how pirates speak. David Chauvel’s faithful adaptation combined with Fred Simon’s vibrant art truly captures the excitement experienced by readers both old and young alike that this classic has invoked for so many years.
