Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

I read Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson for my children’s literature class. This was one of the first books written about pirates! I enjoyed reading about Jim and the quest to find Captain Flint’s treasure, although at times I found myself rooting for the pirates as they seemed to have a better moral code. This book does reflect the racial attitudes of the time it was written so when reading it there should also be a conversation about those racial attitudes and the language used. This is a fun classic read and if you really love pirates I would definitely recommend it.
