Why I liked this title:
How did Peter Pan get that way? That's the question Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson try to answer in this swashbuckling, action-packed adventure story, complete with nasty pirates, blood-thirsty savages, hungry crocodiles-- and a magical substance on which the whole story turns. Don't be put off by the number of pages-- this book goes FAST! The chapters are short, and each one has a cliffhanger ending that guarantees you will keep reading! If you like your adventure in large doses, you'll love Peter and the Starcatchers! It is literally a thrill a minute!
This title is also available on compact disc.
