Treasure Island

by Robert Louis Stevenson
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

This classic tale of pirates, treasure and swashbuckling action on the high seas is the archetypal ripping yarn, and continues to excite readers of all ages.



Young innkeeper’s son Jim Hawkins finds himself embroiled in a breathtaking race to find Captain Flint’s Treasure, alongside the treacherous Long John Silver, and closely followed by a band of dastardly pirates, among them the ominous Blind Pew. Robert Ingpen has let his imagination loose on this enthralling adventure, bringing the unforgettable characters to life as never before.​

‘In Treasure Island, Stevenson wrote one of the great books of all time, an enduring masterpiece, and my favourite too. No edition has ever been better illustrated than this. Ingpen’s drawings are utterly compelling.’ – Michael Morpurgo

Illustrator Robert Ingpen was born in 1936 in Geelong, Australia, and still lives and works nearby in Barwon Heads.

A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world. www.robertingpen.com
