Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate adventure has been adapted into picture book format.
Treasure Island. Provided in Spanish only.
La Isla del Tesoro es la novela clásica de aventuras que acuñó las historias de piratas y su peculiar iconografía. A mediados del ...siglo XVIII, un viejo marinero, Billy Bones, llega a la posada de un pequeño pueblo de Inglaterra. Pronto Billy entabla amistad con Jim, el hijo de los posaderos, quién hace confidente de sus temores: él guarda un secreto y vendrán a arrebatárselo. Un día, Billy recibe la “mota negra”, la señal pirata de que la muerte le espera. Es el inicio de la historia que llevará a Jim, el médico local Livesey y un acaudalado burgués, Trelawney, a una aventura inolvidable a través de las aguas del caribe, siempre vigilados por el inquietante cocinero de a bordo, un marinero de una sola pierna, llamado Long John Silver. * Publicada por primera vez en 1883 en formato de serial en la revista “Young Folk”, pronto se convirtió en un éxito y en inspiración para numerosas obras posteriores que abordaron la misma temática. Considerada tradicionalmente como una historia de un rito de iniciación, La Isla del Tesoro también destaca por su ambientación, sus personajes carismáticos y la acción que inunda sus páginas. También es un retrato irónico sobre la ambigüedad moral de los seres humanos según las circunstancias. En esta edición se presenta una cuidada edición ilustrada, adaptada al público más joven, y para los adultos que quieran revisitar las aventuras de Jim en La Isla del Tesoro. read more
