Personalized Treasure Island

Cast off for adventure with Robert Louis Stevenson's timeless tale
of action and suspense!


Classic Book By You® presents your very own personalized edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Now you and your friends can set sail for excitement with Long John Silver and his infamous crew of pirates!

The personalized young hero (Jim Hawkins in the original) begins the tale when he comes into possession of a pirate's log book and a treasure map. When he shows them to family friends Dr. Livesay and Squire Trelawny, they decide to hire a ship, the Hispaniola, to find the riches--and the chase is on, because the old pirates are after their treasure, too!

The Hispaniola's captain makes a dangerous mistake by hiring sea cook Long John Silver, who's secretly after the treasure himself. When the crew sets sail for the high seas and the crew turns to mutiny, Jim faces conflicts between bravery and cowardice, truth and lies, loyalty and betrayal, and responsibility and greed.

Treasure Island’s suspenseful plot, emotional depth, brilliant narration and colorful characters offer plenty of rewards for all. In this swaggering pirate tale, the gold and the seafaring thrills are yours for the taking. A classic novel that will be treasured forever!

What do we personalize in Treasure Island?

Treasure Island covers Hardcover edition Paperback edition Hardcover edition with custom photo Jim - The boy at the center of the story, Jim is brave, loyal, and tries to do the right thing. His hunger for adventure leads him to the Hispaniola and the hunt for treasure, while his friendly nature puts him at risk for treachery by Long John Silver.

Dr David Livesay - A calm, composed, duty-bound man who decides to take Jim on the voyage. He is also a local magistrate and a close friend of the Hawkins family.

Jim's mother - A loving, hard-working woman who owns the family Inn. (This character is not named in the original.)

Captain Alexander Smollett - The brave captain of the Hispaniola. He is intelligent, tactful, and very strict when it comes to handling the ship and its crew.

Ben Gunn - The only human inhabitant of Treasure Island. He was marooned by his fellow pirates three years ago.

Captain Billy Bones - A tall, strong, drunken man with a dark past who comes to live at the Inn carrying an old sea-chest filled with mystery!

Note: In addition to the personalizations of the characters, some other edits have been made to the original text. The story is originally told by Jim himself; in our version, the story is told by a narrator (but still mostly through our young hero's eyes). In addition, the role of our hero's father has been omitted; in the original, he dies early in the tale. In other respects the novel is true to the original classic book.
