Peter and the Starcatchers

Author: Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson

Genre: Fantasy/Adventure/Children

Series: Peter Pan

Peter and his ‘lost boys’ are leaving London and going to the land of King Zarboff – the third. It is rumored that a giant snakes eat his servants.  They are leaving on a ship called the “Never Land” – though the ‘ship’ is more like a peeling, ill-run tub than anything else.

Needless to say, the boys don’t want to go.

When a box full of Starstuff is smuggled onto the Never Land, the notorious pirate captain Black Stache finds out about it… and will stop at nothing to find it.

This book was so much fun – it had just the right amount of magic, humor, and adventure. It was clean of sexual situations, gore, and language. A high fantasy, swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan!

Ages: 10+

  1. I’ve read this book, and while I don’t like it as much as the original Peter Pan book, it is very entertaining. The authors add their own flair to the story.

    • I was wondering that myself; there were two others on the bookstore shelf that I couldn’t buy.
      But reading it proved yes, this was the first one. =D
