Faclan Òga : Robin Scott-Elliot

Finding Treasure Island by Robin Scott-Elliot

“Finding Treasure Island is the missing memoir of Sam Osbourne, which reveals his part in the birth of the greatest adventure story written. It begins on a summer holiday when Robert Louis Stevenson sketches a map for his stepson and ends with their lives changed forever. As Stevenson writes Sam follows a treasure hunt of his own through the hidden glens and forests of the Cairngorms with the mystical Jen Hawkins”

Robin Scott-Elliott will talk to P4-7 pupils about his engaging new novel ‘Finding Treasure Island’, Stevenson, Pirates and making up stories.  As his book begins with a map, Robin will lead the children in a creative storytelling activity, starting by drawing their own imaginative map.
