Have you read The Treasure Island? It's a great adventurous book written by Robert Louis Stevenson. Today, thanks to Google - doodle, we can remember this remarkable novelist, who was born in Edimburgh on 13th November in 1850.
Stenvenson was an essayist, poet and author of fiction and travel books such The Treasure Island. Thanks to this novel, Stevenson gained fame. The main characters are Jim Hawkins, a young boy, who meets an old pirate, Billy Bones, who shows him a misterious map which points out the Captain Flint's treasure. I enjoyed reading this novel, but I prefer The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, also written by the same novelist and published in 1886. I recommend you to read these exciting books.
