Bookworm Bri - Book Review #4 - Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson
Peter and the Starcatchers is an adventure story set on the Island of Mollusk. It centers around Peter, an orphan boy and Molly, his pretty, mysterious friend, the pair overcoming pirates and various other threats in a quest that will see them protect the world from a great evil. As might be expected from any Neverland story, Peter Pan takes center stage as the primary protagonist. Approximately 14 years old, Peter plays the role of leader of his band of lost boys, having acquired the position not only because of his age but the fact that he can spit the farthest. Following considerable exposure to the so-called starstuff, the greatest treasure in the world, Peter learns to fly.
After all this time, why share a writing credit now? How did Peter learn to fly, anyway? And what's this about him never growing old? In the first of at least two swashbuckling novels, Barry and Pearson fill in the blanks, tracking Peter and his friends from St. Norbert's Home for Wayward Boys over stormy, treacherous seas to the island of Neverland, where a pirate named Black Stache means to intercept a mysterious trunk that holds the greatest treasure on earth.
