  1. Chapter 1
    In chapter 1 an unexpected guest shows up with a chest at the inn Jim hawkins father by the name of Billy Bones.
    Billy Bones insists to be called captin and stays far longer than he pays for at the inn.
    No one dares too chase him for money though. But though he is not paying for his stay he pays young Jim to watch out the window for a 1 leged man.
    Jims father thought that the captin would frighten guests away with his looks,clothes and smell.
    but to his and there familys surprise he has welcomed travelers to the inn with his scary sea stories.
    However the captins presence seemed to jim one of the reasons that his father became so ill.
    The reason was he never changed his clothes.In the end of the chapter the alonely person how stode up to the captin was Dr. Livesey who the captin threatened to stab with a nife but it was the dr. who came back wth the threat to hang him that kept him at bay.

    This is what happened in chapter six, Jim rode to Dr. Livesey’s with the Head Office Mr Dance leading the way.
    When they got to his house they found that the Doctor was out and went on to find him at dinner with the squirer.
    The squirer was quick to ask what their business was though once Jim could see their interest and desirer to know more.
    They all hundled over the package and tentatively opened the package to discover a book and sealed paper. Dr. Livesey and Jim
    were puzzled by its strange markings and figures in colums but the Squire knew what we held in our hands… It was the
    the ledger of The Black Hearted Flints accounts of stolen fortunes and moneys owning in French Spanish and English
    coins. The sealed paper was a map with notes and directions and just past a hill called the Spyglass they saw a note
    that read “bulk of treasure here”. It was then quickly decided that a great ship be found and a journey commence at
    once. The Squire would be the Admiral, Dr. Livesey will be the ship s doctor and Jim would be the cabin boy. Their
    biggest concern was to keep this expedition quiet so they decided to all stay together until the ship set sail.

    THE END

  28. The Other Work one the book
    The charaters shaping up:
    Long John Silver:
    Well it was hard to tell what John was going to do next because his mood changes easly.
    At one momment he’s nice then the next he’s not.
    Captin:
    I thought the captin shaped up nicely always sticking to the right side and kept going for what he belived in.
    The Doctor:
    I thought that this charater was very good always looking out for Jim and all that.
    Jim:
    I think that Jim grew more and more confident as the book went on. Telling the truth and the facts, taking risks and keeping oaths are some of the thing that make Jim a good example of a charater shaping up.

    The settings of the book:
    Well these are some of the settings of the book
    The Inn
    The Ship
    The Island
    .stockade
    . shore
    . forest
    . cave
    There really are many of them.

    The Type Of Language Used:
    One of the type of languages were
    Old fashion language a example of this would be
    .That I shall do
    .Inn
    .seaman
    Those are just some of the examples used in the book.
    Another type of language used was
    Pirate
    Some examples of this would be
    .shiver me timbers
    . Songs such as “FIFTEEN MEN ON A DEAD MAN’S CHEST YO-HO-HO,AND A BOTTLE OF RUM
    Those were just some of the many used in this pirate book.
    Thanks for reading
    Olivia
