We got a chance to read Enchanted Tales: Treasure Island. This was a very good book. Before I get into my review let me tell you what this was about.
When young Jim Hawkins suddenly finds himself in possession of a mysterious treasure map, he sets sail for the South Sea with his off-beat friends, Biscuit the mouse and Dickens the ship’s cat. When trouble arises, the trio barely escape the pirate’s midnight mutiny as they flea to Treasure Island – where they embark on a wild, laugh-packed quest to unearth the buried doubloons before the bumbling buccaneers beat them to it!
We absolutely loved the story. The pictures in the story are bodly colored. I love the fact that as your reading it’s highlighted, which I think is great for beginning readers. This book is interactive where you can touch the pictures in the story and you hear a very short blurb of what’s in the story. Maybe a better example would be that the characters talk. My kids love pirate and treasure stories. Which we read this at a good time because one of the Maritime Museums has a new Pirate display. There is three options to the book: Read to Me, Read Alone, or Auto Play. We of course chose the Read To Me. The story is wonderfully narrated to. I really like how the young boy can remember things. He has a photographic memory I think. I like the very end of the story. The boy has a happy ending but he also had a heart to not like the pirates who just were greedy and wanted treasure. This is a great book to add to your collection.
Disclaimer: I was not paid for this review. However, I did receive a copy of Enchanted Tales: Treasure Island for my review. The opinoins in this post are 100% mine.
