Chapter 1 Jim Hawkins’ Story I
Chapter 2 Dr Livesey’s Story
Chapter 3 Jim’s Story II
‘Tomorrow I’m going to Bristol,’ said Mr Trelawney. ‘I’m going to buy a ship and find sailors. Jim, you and Dr Livesey are going to come with me to look for the treasure!’
Jim Hawkins works in his father’s inn by the sea. One day an old sailor comes to stay. He watches the sea and the ships. He is ill.
He is afraid. But what - or who - is he afraid of?
Very soon Jim understands, because the old man has a map. A lot of people are interested in that map - and some of them are very dangerous people. Jim Hawkins is going to meet them when he sails in the Hispaniola to Treasure Island. It will be a journey with many difficulties . . .
