Wordsworth now offers over 400 titles of beautiful books at the most competitive price point on the market!

In addition to those titles, we also offer a great selection of World Literature, Poetry, Mystery and Supernatural, Special Edition series, Box Sets and an exclusive line, only available in the U.S; a collection of books that are "The Best Of" various authors bestselling work. Our World Literature series encompasses major works of philosophy, and more, from around the world, our Poetry series covers all of the major British, Irish and American writers and our Mystery & Supernatural series offers chilling ghost stories and intriguing mysteries. Add to that our Special Editions, our Box Sets and our beautiful hardback Library Collection (which all make great gifts) and we can truly say that our collection of over 400 titles, is something that nobody else on the market offers!

CLASSICS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

TREASURE ISLAND BY Robert Louis Stevenson

We're looking at the classics that appeal to all ages. Read David Stuart Davies' article here

ISBN 9781840227635 and 9781853261039

About the book: 

 ‘Fifteen men on the dead man's chest-Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!’ Treasure Island is a tale of pirates and villains, maps, treasure and shipwreck, and is perhaps the best adventure story ever written.

When young Jim Hawkins finds a packet in Captain Flint's sea chest, he could not know that the map inside it would lead him to unimaginable treasure. Shipping as cabin boy on the Hispaniola, he sails with Squire Trelawney, Captain Smollett, Dr Livesey, the sinister Long John Silver and a frightening crew to Treasure Island. There, mutiny, murder and mayhem lead to a thrilling climax.
