Following the demise of bloodthirsty buccaneer Captain Flint, young Jim Hawkins finds himself with the key to a fortune. For he has discovered a map that will lead him to the fabled Treasure Island.

With a wonderfully funny introduction by award-winning author Eoin Colfer, Treasure Island is one of the twelve brilliant classic stories being relaunched in Puffin Classics in March 2008.
