This is an engaging full-cast adaptation of Stevenson's classic. Narrated by the young cabin boy, Jim Hawkins, this pirate adventure is told with a thick cockney accent, which adds to the story. Despite frequent contractions and dropped consonants, young listeners will have little trouble following the story. The script is faithful to Stevenson's novel, and this production is enhanced with music and sound effects, making it an effective movie for the mind. Highly recommended for buccaneers of all ages.
