The Legends of Treasure Island

Jim Hawkins is giving the map of Captain Flint by his father and with the help of Captain Abraham Smollet, his associate, the wealthy Squire Talawny and learned family friend Doctor Livesey; Jim sets off to find the island aboard the good ship Hispaniola. Standing against them is the dreaded one-legged pirate Long John Silver and his motley crew (including a demonic Pew); who will stop at nothing to find the treasure for themselves. On reaching the island he and his friends meet the marooned Ben Gunn; as well as befriend the tomboyish Jane, who was kidnapped as a young girl by Silver for a ransom that her parents refused to pay. They set to brave the mysteries and dangers of the island and solve the many riddles written on the map.
