This chapter book has some illustrations. The sketches in this book are black and white. The illustrator uses lead pencil to create the pictures. The drawings do not have a border, but they look like they do because the artist draws to an imaginary edge to make an imaginary square or rectangle.
My favorite part in this book was when the ship's cook couldn't find the treasure. He had seen where the treasure was buried, but now he couldn't find the spot! I was glad that he couldn't find it because he was the mean villan in the story.
This book is from the Dalmation Press Children's Classics. It is a series of books written by important authors of long ago . The books in this series are fun to read. You can't stop reading them because when you think that you are ready to stop, something exciting happens in the story. The books are hard to put down.
I recommend this book to third graders and older because some of the words are very complicated. People who like adventures or stories about the sea will really like this book.
