I am Silver, and there is no other pirate like me on these waters. . . .

This being the last testament of the infamous pirate Long John Silver, you would do well not to trust a word in its pages. Held captive aboard his own ship, the Linda Maria, he is to be taken to England, where he will hang at the King's pleasure. But he has another plan: to exact revenge upon his captors by disclosing their secrets in a journal. It tells a tale of treason, murder, his own ascent from pickpocket street urchin to pirate captain, a lost treasure that would rival King George's own riches, and what really happened on Treasure Island. This book is that journal . . . but is Silver to be believed?

Editorial Reviews

"[A] witty romp. . . . This isn't Treasure Island revisited, nor is it a sequel. Like the pirate he celebrates, Chupack has taken a bit here and a bit there . . . to create something glitteringly original. [Robert Louis Stevenson] would certainly have approved of Chupack's efforts." -The New York Times Book Review"At the start of Chupack's swashbuckling debut, Long John Silver . . . faces the hangman back in England after a life of piracy on the seven seas. But before he swings, the aging, fever-ridden pirate is determined to tell his fabulous story, so settle back, me hearties, it's one hell of a tale." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)"[A] richly imagined protagonist . . . the old salt's tale gleams like a sharpened cutlass." -Entertainment Weekly
