Robert Louis Stevenson


Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson, born in Edinburgh in 1850, was a novelist, poet and travel writer, best known for his adventure novels Kidnapped and Treasure Island, and gothic thriller The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.Stevenson was a sickly child, suffering bronchial issues throughout his life. His illnesses often prevented him from attending school, and so he was frequently educated at home by private tutors. However, he started writing stories in early childhood. Upon advice from his parents, he studied law at Edinburgh University, but always intended to pursue a career as a writer.In 1879, Stevenson set off for California to reunite with Fanny van de Grift, the woman who would become his wife. The journey provided exceptional inspiration for his writing, but it broke his health, and by the time he arrived in San Francisco he was on death’s door. Once he was recovered, the couple travelled extensively between Scotland and Europe, returning to the United States in 1887. It was in this period that Stevenson published his most successful novels. In 1888, the family sailed through the South Pacific for three years, an experience which transformed Stevenson’s health for the better. They settled in Samoa, where he died in 1894.

Treasure Island audiobook

Treasure Island must be the most enthralling adventure book ever written for children. As we listen to the voice of Jim Hawkins telling his extraordinary tale, and later that of his companion Dr Livesey, we are plunged into a world of pirates, buried treasure, mutiny and deceit. We meet Billy Bones, Blind Pew, Black Dog and, of course, the charming buccaneer Long John Silver. The action and adventure never falter, and the spell of this enduring story is sustained until the very last word.

My daughter loves her new voxblock and listens to the stories over and over again. Wonderful product and have already recommended to friends. Love the mini books too and the fact there's no wifi. My 6 year old daughter was able to use it directly from the box with no input from was charged and ready to go!




It’s a robust quality product. It’s simple for my 5 year old grandson to use. He loves listening to the wide range of literature available.

Voxblock has been such an amazing gift for my niece, and I love the fact it’s a never ending gift idea being able to get her new stories for her library. She really enjoys spending time listening to books and is happy to replay stories. She’s even got the animals (dog and cat) chilled out listening with her.
