The name, "Stevenson", is not mentioned in any of the twelve, however there are those references to concepts found in "Treasure Island", as Roger on crutches was pretending to be Long John Silver. The parrot was taught to say, 'Pieces of Eight." The name, Captain Flint, came from there. The Amazons playing at being "pirate" probably came from concepts provided to them in that story. Nancy enjoyed saying, "Shiver my timbers." also came from that story. The major concept of "Peter Duck" with its buried treasure and REAL pirates ("Black Jack" and his bunch) seem well related to "Treasure Island" - perhaps felt by some to be a degree of plagiarism.
