destined to remain pieces of folklore for as long as children want to read Robert Louis Stevenson s most famous book With it s dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic AAAARGH This be a fair tale o the seas and a right good venture into the West to fetch old Flint s gold.The Scot writes o good master Jim

yarn a go there streasure than ole Gunn left us says I.Aaaargh Someone recently asked me what review I enjoyed writing the most, and, well, this is it I have a massive problem with this book It s one I m a little embarrassed to admit The problem is not with the writing or the characters that Stevenson has created it s not even with the plot The problem resides with Kermit the Frog Stay with me here I grew up watching the muppets I became slightly obsessed with them I kind of wanted to join them So, whenever I read about Captain Smollett and Long Someone recently asked me what review I enjoyed writing the most, and, well, this is it I have a massive problem with this book It s one I m a little embarrassed to admit The problem is not with the writing or the characters that Stevenson has created it s not even with the plot The problem resides with Kermit the Frog Stay with me here I grew up watching the muppets I became slightly obsessed with them I kind of wanted to join them So, whenever I read about Captain Smollett and Long John Silver all I can see is Kermit fighting Tim Curry Therefore, I just can t take this book seriously Well, at least not completely The Muppet Treasure Island is such a great film it s hilarious This book was muchserious The pirates in here aren t singing toys they re hardened criminals that created the pirate stereotype They re the sort of men you don t want on your ship because they d likely cut your throat in your sleep They might wake you up first if they re feeling kind So, they wouldn t try and gain your trust by singing you a jolly song about piracy, like Tim and his muppet mates would But, muppet based comparison aside, this is a good novel I did quite enjoy it It all begins when the young Jim Hawkins comes across a map for buried treasure, except he hasn t got any money to fund the voyage He Gonzo and Rizzo goes alone and seeks the help of Fozzie Bear Squire Trelawney As a member of the Victorian gentry, he takes the map for himself with the intention of filling his own coffers with the loot He s not a very nice bear guy, and he s not overly intelligent either In his frugality he accidently hires a group of twisted muppets pirates that, unsurprisingly, mutiny against him This all sounds terrible, I know But, it s not all bad because the ship s captain is none other than Kermit the Frog Captain Smollett who is absolutely in love with Miss Piggy no one Indeed, Smollett is in direct contrast to the money driven Fozzie Trelawney because he is everything he is not he is brave and honourable he is completely true to his word He is competing, unknowingly, for the attention of Jim The young boy is looking for a farther figure, and in Silver and Smollett he sees two potential role models, and two potential life choices It all works out in the end though because this is a muppet movie adventure book after all In all seriousness, it is an exciting book But, for me, that s all it is There are no hidden motives or dark secrets Everything is straight forward, clean cut and simple It is a nice easy read Stevenson s masterpiece is most definitelyThe Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde That s where the real mystery is at But, it doesn t have muppets..Facebook Twitter Insta Academia 3 items worthy of note in Robert Louis Stevenson s classic treasure Treasure Island 1 There are a ton of

factions grunting against their enemies it does decelerate the pace of the story Here is a very substantial urge to make everything explosive loud Thank you, Mr Stevenson English Treasure Island

my pen in the year of grace 17 and go back to the time when my father kept the Admiral Benbow inn and the brown old seaman with the sabre cut first took up his lodging under our roof Perfect incipit for an adventure novel, able to introduce the whole story in a few lines and, at the same time, generate in the reader that tantalizing curiosity that invites you to read quickly the pages, thinking let s settle down, you re going to see some things.However, I confess that for me the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, reread years later this time is a bedtime reading for my daughter , has lost part of its appeal Nevertheless, my daughter appreciated it, probably it s a novel that best suits the tastes of children and young people In fact, Stevenson has never hidden that the inspiration to the novel came frome his adopted son, Lloyd, with whom in a rainy afternoon drew an island for fun, fantasizing with him on the places about the places map and on future characters The novel that was taking shape for the 12 year olds boy s amusement changed in a really fun adventure Well, then let s all sing it togetherFifteen men on a dead man s chestYo ho ho and a bottle of rum Vote 7,5 Sollecitato dal conte Trelawney, dal dottor Livesey e dal resto della brigata di scrivere la storia della nostra avventura all Isola del Tesoro, con tutti i suoi particolari, nessun escluso, salvo la posizione dell isola e ci perch una parte del tesoro ci ancora nascosta, io prendo la penna nell anno di grazia 17 e mi rifaccio al tempo in cui mio padre teneva la locanda dell Ammiraglio Benbow e il vecchio uomo di mare dal viso sfregiato da un colpo di sciabola prese per la prima volta alloggio presso di noi L incipit di quelli perfetti per un romanzo d avventura, in grado di introdurre in poche righe tutta la vicenda e contemporaneamente generare nel lettore quella stuzzicante curiosit che invoglia a divorare le pagine Per la serie mettetevi a sedere che ora ne vedrete delle belle.Confesso per che per me il romanzo di Robert Louis Stevenson, riletto a distanza di anni lettura serale per mia figlia , ha perso un p del suo fascino Mia figlia ha comunque apprezzato, probabilmente un romanzo che meglio si adatta ai gusti di bambini e ragazzi D altronde Stevenson non ha mai nascosto che l ispirazione per il romanzo gliela ha data il figlio adottivo Lloyd, con il quale in un pomeriggio di pioggia disegn per gioco un isola, fantasticando assieme a lui sui luoghi della mappa e sui futuri personaggi Il racconto che prendeva forma per il divertimento di un ragazzo dodicenne si poi trasformato in una gran bella avventura E allora cantiamo tutti insiemeQuindici uomini sulla cassa del morto,yo ho ho, e una bottiglia di rum Voto 7,5
