Argh!! Ahoy mateys!! Ms. Robson's sixth grade class has been reading Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island this month. These buccaneers followed clues around the school on their scavenger hunt to find the buried gold. With treasure maps and an "X" to mark the spot, they raced against time and each other to reach the bounty. This famous book first published in 1883 is a commonly read adventure story about pirates, bravery, and determination.
