Among the host of dastardly characters meet Long John Silver, ship's cook and charming villain - is he young Jim's best hope of survival? This is a classic swashbuckling adventure story told at an exciting and fast-moving pace to retain interest. Vibrant full-colour artwork adds fresh appeal to this classic tale. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling. A running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. Endmatter provides information about the author, the historical background to the period in which the author lived and a timeline of world events that places the work in historical context. It fits into Key Stage 2 English and supports Key Stage 3 English. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.

So inspired to have discovered Treaure Island at my age and shares that discovery with my seven year old. This format made it a real cliffhanger and we loved the descriptions of the characters. Still overwhelmed to find that this is truly a children's book and just disappointed I wasn't seven myself. The style of this Graffex book ISBN 1904642748 published 2006 is so accessible but still the vocabulary and terminology (though footnotes provided intermittently) allows for you to really share it with your child if you wish.
