Favorite Book: "Treasure Island" Robert L. Stevenson

"My favorite book was "Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson. First, and foremost, it was the very first book I read, other than a school book. Secondly, it was interesting to read an adventure story about a colorful pirate. Thirdly, what made "Treasure Island" even more significant was that this book was chosen to be Walt Disney's first live-action film, which, for me, was thrilling."
