Treasure Island

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, 234 pages

Avast, ye landlubbers! Sit yerselfs down fer a tale o' gentlemen o' fortune huntin' for a stash o' dubloons! But beware the squalls and sperrits!

OK, I can't do that anymore. This is the quintessential tale of a treasure-hunting sea voyage filled with double-crossing rum-filled pirates, a map where X marks the spot, a chatty parrot, and the legendary Long John Silver. I'd never read the story before, but I loved it. It checks all the boxes for a piratical adventure. Highly recommend it.
