The Story
Peter and the Starcatchers—Book Review

The Starcatcher series tells the story of the events leading up to J.M Barrie's classic novel, Peter Pan. This first installment finds thirteen-year-old Peter and his orphan friends taking to the seas on the good ship Never Land, destined to become slaves on an island ruled by the villainous King Zarboff. On board, Peter befriends twelve-year-old Molly Aster, and the two discover a mysterious trunk. In the meantime, infamous pirate, Black Stache, is in pursuit of the trunk which is rumored to hold the "greatest treasure on earth" -- an otherwordly dust called "starstuff" that has mysterious and, in the wrong hands, dangerous powers. After several battles at sea and a terrible storm, they all wash up on Mollusk Island, where the battle for the treasure continues.
The Scoop
Peter and the Starcatchers—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

Fast-paced and exciting, the first installment in the Starcatcher series is a fun read for adventure lovers, unlocking some of the mysteries of Peter Pan: why he can fly, how he came to Neverland, why he never grows older, and more. There is some violence associated with the story, including the use of weapons (harpoons, cannons, pistols, spears, whips, and knives) in various fights and battles. The children's lives are sometimes threatened, and Peter cuts off Black Stache's hand. Peter and Molly are strong, resourceful characters. Molly also demonstrates responsibility and determination by protecting the treasure without the aid of any adults.
