Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9–Jim Hawkins, Billy Bones, Ben Gunn, and Long John Silver come alive again in this faithful adaptation of the classic novel, which retains much of the original language. Billy Bones is still struck dead by apoplexy and the parrot still cries pieces of eight, for example. The stark visuals are often gripping, most notably in the scene in which Billy Bones first appears and later when Jim Hawkins fights for his life against Israel Hands aboard the Hispaniola. The section entitled The Making of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island includes concept sketches, photos of Hamilton's friends that he used as models for his characters, and information on his artistic techniques. Readers will also learn that the author approaches storytelling in a cinematic way, which may explain why there are so many images of characters' faces hidden dramatically in shadows. Older children and teens will find this to be a compelling read, and it can help to bridge the gap in your library between graphic novels and the classics.–Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

Treasure Island is my favorite book. I look for things like this graphic novel variation. First the art is great. It captures the feel of the story. It's dark and erie. The story is well paced and stays true to the original source material. The characters come alive before the reader's eye's. This is great reading for youths or adults.

This is a graphic novel of TI. Not a kids version per se. But none the less, something different for the Graphic Novel fan. I'm no overly excited about it. Wish the quality of the paper was a little bit better to help with the visibility of the graphics. It's all black and white - no color.

Treasure Island has will always be one of my favorite adventure tales and when I saw that there was a graphic novel adapting it, I bought it right away. I was so excited reading this one! For some reviewers, they point out that the art is lacking and pace of the writing being off, but I disagree. The art is yes, not like the "typical" graphic novel, but that is what I found so intriguing! It is gritty and raw and because the story is all told as if Jim Hawkins himself is telling the story, with this adaptation it is as if he has sketched the drawings himself aswell. Which, for me, added great depth to the story. I look forward to seeing more from this artist.

Not a good version of this classic story, I have read other graphic novels of this title. Go for the one by Marvel because this one skips over any details that build up intensity in the story. And the artwork is very plain black and white.

These books are great! My 7 and 10 year old love them and its a great and fun way to introduce them to the classics. Also, they are safe for kids to read without supervision, unlike other traditional comic books that have sexual scenes and bad language.

Do I really need to summarize this book? It’s Treasure Island, a classic for Pete’s sake! Ok, ok…Jim Hawkins is a young son of an innkeeper. When a drunken pirate, Billy Bones, comes to stay at the inn he tells Jim many different stories, but he also has Jim keep a weather eye out for a pirate with a wooden leg. Hawkins and Long John Silver end up sailing to an island looking for buried treasure. Much shenanigans ensue.

Ok, I’ve read Treasure Island before. But this is the graphic novel. It does a pretty good job of conveying everything that was in the original book in a short amount of pages. I didn’t particularly care for the artwork though. It seemed sparse and unfinished. But then again, I like a lot of detail and color. If you want a short quick read of Treasure Island then this graphic novel may do the trick.
