SUN SCORE *** The Disney cartoon feature Treasure Planet is shot through with ingenuity. It outlandishly, cleverly moves Robert Louis Stevenson's seminal swashbuckler Treasure Island to outer space. The movie's affection for its source may be enough to get youngsters to crack open the original. Treasure Planet unrolls in a parallel universe where space-traveling humans and other creatures inhabit the culture and architecture of 18th-century England, with a bit of 21st-century America thrown in. The space ships look just like nautical ships, except the sails billow out with solar energy instead of wind.

Q: I am enclosing a picture of a settee that I inherited. It is painted gold, and the upholstery is in good shape. Could you please tell me its period and value?A: This is Louis XV style made about 1900. With its original natural finish, this would sell for $500 to $600. The gold paint reduces the value to about $300.Q: The enclosed mark is on the bottom of a 4-inch-high candy dish that is 5 inches in diameter. It is compote style with pierced lattice work around the side. It has applied pink and yellow roses with green leaves.

Many of the books you will read involve interesting locations - an island, a neighborhood, a land far away, a journey. As you read the story, draw a map of where everything is. You will need paper and colored pencils for this project. Add different features and landmarks as you continue reading. Label as much as you can and make your map colorful. You might want to include a key so that the map will be easier to understand. It is helpful to have a map if a story is complex. You can refer to it if you get lost.
