Description

Fifteen men on the dead man's chest -
Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum.'

Life changes for Jim Hawkins the day a mysterious sailor walks into his father's inn. The sailor, Billy Bones, possesses a secret which is in hot demand. As Jim discovers when Billy Bones dies, the secret is actually a map which indicates the whereabouts of some hidden treasure... and people are willing to kill for it.

The much sought-after treasure map falls into the hands of Jim, and he embarks on an adventure to find legendary riches. Little does he know that it will be a voyage fraught with numerous and unknown dangers. On a ship full of pirates, all out for their own personal gain, Jim realizes that very few can be trusted. But will the murderous crew get what they want? Or will Jim outwit them to recover the buried treasure?

Robert Louis Stevenson's tale, full of action and adventure, has entertained readers for well over a hundred years. This graphic novel adaptation brings to life a fascinating story that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
