Don'teven assume of starting this bookunless you're sitting in a comfortable chair and have lots of time. Theyset sail aboard the Never Land, a ship carrying a precious and mysterious trunk inits cargo hold, too as the journey quickly becomes fraught with excitement anddanger. Treacherous battles withpirates, foreboding thunderstorms at sea, and evocative writing immerses thereader in a story that slowly and finally reveals the secrets and mysteries ofthe beloved Peter Pan.                       Discoverrichly developed characters inside the sweet but sophisticated Molly, the scary butfamiliar Black Stache, as well as the fearless Peter. Afast-paced, impossible-to-put-down adventure awaits because the young orphan Peterand his mates are dispatched to an island ruled by the evil King Zarboff.

Humorist Dave Barry and suspense writer Ridley Pearson have clearly taken great delight in writing a 400-plus page prequel of sorts to Scottish dramatist J. M. Barrie's beloved Peter Pan stories. Attila the Hun? On Earth, it is the Starcatchers' job to rush to the scene and collect the starstuff before it falls in to the hands of the Others who use its myriad powers for evil."Ever hear of Zeus? The outcome is actually a fast-paced and fluffy pirate adventure, total with talking porpoises, stinky rogues, achievable cannibals, a flying crocodile, biting mermaids, as well as a much-sought-after trunk full of magical glowing green"starstuff. In accordance with 14-year-old Molly Aster they all derived their powers from starstuff that occasionally falls to Earth from the heavens. Michelangelo?

The downright goofy, modern 8-year-old boy humor often clashes with an old-time pirate sensibility, along with the rapid-fire dialogue, while appropriately paced, is far from inventive. (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson Greg Call's wonderful black-and-white illustrations are deliciously old-fashioned and add plenty of atmosphere to a silly, swashbuckling story that shows us how Peter Pan came to fly and why he, and his story, will never get old. Still, the high-seas hijinks and desert-island shenanigans will maintain readers turning the pages.
