Review by Eric

Peter and the Starcatchers

by Dave Barry

and Ridley Peason

While reading Peter and the Starcatchers by: Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson I could not help but get sucked into the world of Peter Pan and his origin. The fantastical journey that Peter and the lost boys, his friends, go through to get where they are to this day is quite incredible. This is not only a young adult book but can be enjoyed by many different skill levels. From 5th graders all the way to 12th graders can enjoy this incredible transformation of a young boy. You may wonder how Captain Hook came to be, or how Peter can fly and never get old, or why the Mollusk can somewhat tolerate Peter and the lost boys. Well Peter and the Starcatchers will explore every corner on how it all comes together. Though at times imagination is needed to fully explore Peter and his intriguing beginnings, it brings together a childhood favorite of many, Peter Pan. Being the first of a four book series, Peter and the Starcatchers does a wonderful job at bringing it all to make sense. I have nothing bad to say about the book, I would suggest it to anyone who loves a creatively crafted Fantasy novel.
