Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

Even with familiar characters such as Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins, this illustrated edition is anything but ordinary—Lawrence’s beautiful woodcuts make reading this book a family bedtime treasure the entire year through. Ages 10+

Fifteen-year-old Jane Arrowood enjoyed a normal day at the beach with her mom when the unthinkable happened: She lost her arm to a shark attack, quickly becoming “that shark girl” to all her friends.
