Book Six - Treasure Island - Part One

Shiver my timbers! I'm currently reading about Long John Silver and his mates, arr. There's nothing quite like a good quest, especially one filled with famous sayings. It's a bit like Hamlet, which couldn't have been all that difficult to write. After all, Shakespeare just put together a bunch of old adages, didn't he??? Apparently Treasure Island is the book that gave us most of our pirate clichés, including this song--
Fifteen men on the dead man's chest
Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum!

  1. Have not read this one before either! Even after my daughter went through a severe case of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Seriously, her entire room was POTC stuff. Thankfully she's moved on from that, but now it's Twilight. Funny how I miss Jack Sparrow...
