July's book share with Poppins Book Nook is Ye Old Pirates. We choose Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson tells the story of the brilliant, devious Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins' (a young boy) adventures seeking the lost treasure of Captain Flint on Treasure Island. There is much more to Long John that meets the eye and when they are very close upon the treasure, the cunning Silver shows just how murderous he really is. We would recommend this book for ages 12 and up.
