The Theme of Treasure Island

 Lesson 35 Essay
      The book Treasure Island is a great story. There's pirates, parrots, treasure maps with black Xs. And, a theme.
        I think the theme of Treasure Island is: Be wary of the company you keep. In the book, Jim Hawkins finds himself amidst some very bad people who try to kill him.
        Also, another theme I think could fit in the story is: Money. Those bad people that Jim is traveling with are seeking the great amount of treasure marked on the map. They go so far as to kill most of the crew, just to get what they want.
