Peter and the Starcatchers - Peter, Bk 1 Author:Ridley Pearson, Dave Barry Soon after Peter, an orphan, sets sail from England on the ship Never Land, he befriends and assists Molly, a young Starcatcher, whose mission is to guard a trunk of magical stardust from a greedy pirate and the native inhabitants of a remote island. This is a prequel to "Peter Pan".
We all know how the story of Peter Pan goes... now find out how the boy and his friends (and enemies) came to be.
I had trouble putting this book down once I got past page one, which made this a very fast read.
I loved this story! It was an easy read for myself (day or two) and I am now reading it to my 9yr old son. It was a bit too much for him to undertake himself but it is the perfect book to read to an older child that likes pirates and a little bit of freight. I wouldn't read it to my 6yr old quite yet.
I would definately recommend this book to others, adults and children alike.

My children (ages 14, 11, and 4) LOVED this book! It was fun to discuss it with each other, and hard not to tell what was going to happen! It was very exciting, and made me glad I had gotten it! It's tough to find a book that everyone in the family can enjoy together!
I thought that this was a really fun read. It gives a new spin to earlier parts of Peter's story prior to what we're familiar with from the Disney movie. Even though it's a read aimed towards children, it was written well enough that I didn't find myself annoyed by overly-dramatic teens and sub-standard plot. I'm definitely looking forward to more in the series!
