A map from a dead man’s chest, a sinister one-legged
seafarer – and a parrot! They’re all here in this new adaptation of the thrilling
classic that has inspired every pirate story since.
A pirate arrives at the Admiral Benbow Inn looking for
a former shipmate – and the treasure map he has stolen. But when that map falls into the hands of young Jim Hawkins, the innkeeper’s son, he and the grown-ups who befriend him become the pirates’ next prey.
Seeking the treasure in a chartered ship, they find that their crew – foremost among them the one-legged Long John Silver – are no less eager to get their hands on the gold.
