Treasure Island 22.jpg

Treasure Island

By Ted Hughes, adapted by Ross Brown

Young Jim Hawkins has dreams of becoming a pirate - he cannot believe his luck when not only new, female pirate Mary Read comes to town but when Captain Tempest invites him to join him on a search for burried treasure.

The story grew out of a map that led to imaginary treasure, devised during a holiday in Scotland by Stevenson and his nephew.

There have been four direct Treasure Island film adaptations over the years, including the Muppet version starring Tim Curry as Long John.
