One of my current projects is a choose-your-path adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island. It’s the book that impressed upon us our modern ideas of what pirates were like—how they acted and spoke. It was also a childhood favorite of mine, and one of the first books I recall actually wanting to read. After all, Treasure Island is all about swashbuckling pirates and treasure, and what boy wouldn’t be excited about those things?
My adaptation, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, will be released this fall.
Here’s the initial cover sketch. Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver are about to be attacked! I don’t want to say much more, or give the story away, in case you haven’t read it yet.
