Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. First published as a book in 1883, it was originally serialized in the children’s magazine Young Folks between 1881-82 under the title The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island.

Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, it is an adventure tale known for its atmosphere, character and action.
