    1. Dave Barry is a humor columnist For 25 years he was a syndicated columnist whose work appeared in than 500 newspapers in the United States and abroad In 1988 he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary Many people are still trying to figure out how this happened.Dave has also written a total of 30 books, although virtually none of them contain useful information Two of his books were used as the basis for the CBS TV sitcom Dave s World, in which Harry Anderson played a much taller version of Dave.Dave plays lead guitar in a literary rock band called the Rock Bottom Remainders, whose other members include Stephen King, Amy Tan, Ridley Pearson and Mitch Albom They are not musically skilled, but they are extremely loud Dave has also made many TV appearances, including one on the David Letterman show where he proved that it is possible to set fire to a pair of men s underpants with a Barbie doll.In his spare time, Dave is a candidate for president of the United States If elected, his highest priority will be to seek the death penalty for whoever is responsible for making Americans install low flow toilets.Dave lives in Miami, Florida, with his wife, Michelle, a sportswriter He has a son, Rob, and a daughter, Sophie, neither of whom thinks he s funny.

    2. Pulitzer Prize winning humorist Dave Barry, best selling mystery writer Ridley Pearson, and illustrator Greg Call have combined their talents to create a series of prequels to the J.M Barrie classic Peter Pan This is the first of those stories.Let me start my little review by saying that this book is so fun, exciting, and enjoyable that I have completely forgotten almost the creepy feeling I felt as a 42 year old man wandering around the children s section of the library looking for it.Yes it s [...]

    3. Reviewer s Note obviously, there isn t a movie version of this book yet, anyway they re supposedly working on one, which will probably be terrible but I ll save that rant for later so once again I have to put a book on my The Movie Is Better shelf because I can t be bothered to create a shelf titled The Stage Adaptation Is Better Just keep in mind that if that shelf existed, this book would be there First, Some Background for review of actual book, please skip ahead to paragraph four So this pas [...]

    4. Sometimes I think I am Peter Pan because if growing up means you have to put down or put away the things you ve loved since you were a kid then I can tell you I don t want to grow up Not now Not ever Never Ever I planned to read the original classic one day, having always been a fan of the Disney animated cartoon version growing up, that forever connected me to Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Wendy and all the wonderful characters and places associated with Kensington Gardens and Neverland I couldn t f [...]

    5. Loved it Great fantasy prequel to peter pan grades late 4th 8 Grade 5 9 This prequel to Peter Pan refers as much to the 1953 animated Disney film as to J M Barrie s original play and novel The early chapters introduce the archetypal antagonists Peter, leader of a group of orphan boys being sent into slavery aboard the Never Land, and Black Stache, a fearsome pirate who commands a villainous crew New characters include Molly Aster and her father Molly, at 14, is an apprentice Starcatcher, a secre [...]

    6. I love Dave Barry My parents both adore Dave Barry, as does my grandmother, and they ve been reading or handing off various columns and books of his to me for as long as I can remember I ve read practically every column he s ever written and most of his books For some reason, though, I ve never read his novels, Big Trouble and Tricky Business I love his non fiction columns, so I was less interested in his fictional books Then, when I went home for Christmas, my brother was reading the second of [...]

    7. I picked this book up in the airport on my way to South Africa because I thought it looked a bit Harry Potter esque I knew it was a book for children, but it had a heft similar to the Harry Potter books, and I was looking for something light and fast to read Sometimes, for plane reading, I don t want something heavy and ponderous just something that will keep my attention and interest for long enough to get from here to there Unfortunately, the heft of the book and the magical subject matter are [...]

    8. This was a really cute story It s a prequel to Peter Pan that starts at the very beginning Wendy, before Never Land, and when Captain Hook had no hook I had tried reading this book a couple times, but could never get past chapter 5 or so It was just a bit too slowHowever, my mom in law lent me these books forever ago, and I felt I needed to read them and return them So that s what I did It still took me awhile to get into this book The main problem and reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 is th [...]

    9. If you are going to write a prequel and explain everything about a book considered a classic than at least come up up with something better than this.Somehow two fairly talented writers got together and managed to suck most of the fun and magic out of Peter Pan.That takes effort.The explaination of how NeverLand came to be is on a level of feeble right up there with George Lucas deciding the Force is caused by alien germs.The only character I liked was the pirate that eventually becomes Captain [...]

    10. What a slog this was to get through, in spite of Jim Dale s wonderful as always narration My husband said that Dale s contribution primarily made it obvious how inferior this book was to the Harry Potter series We finished it, thoughnths after starting.

    11. I have vague childhood memories of the tale of Peter Pan and Wendy, which probably come from the Disney movie than any books that might have been read to me as a child But from what I remember, it was one of those stories that starts in the middle of some other story.You don t know, for instance, how Peter Pan came to be a boy who could fly, or never grow up You don t know how it is that he lives on an island with the Lost Boys, a tribe of Indians , and his arch nemesis, Captain Hook.In the boo [...]

    12. This was chosen as a book club read for me, and my initial reaction to the selection was Oh, no Not another Peter Pan story I was pleasantly surprised at this prequel series It is definitely recommended for kids, but I enjoyed it myself I thought the ideas of how Pater Pan and his friends came to be was quite creative For any audio book fans, this is read by Jim Dale of Harry Potter fame Just like in Rowling s books, Dale is fabulous at reading these stories The book and its sequels are pretty l [...]

    13. Mau tau kenapa Peter pan bisa terbang Mau tau kenapa Peter tetep jadi anak2 selamanya Mau tau kenapa ada nama Neverland Mau tau kapan Peter kenalan sama Molly Mau tau darimana asal Wendy Mau Pake Three eh baca aja novel ini seruuuu serasa deja vu gini pas banget ya King of Neverland Michael Jackson meninggal RIP

    14. This book deserve 3 stars Really fantastic I decide to rate 5 stars but when press the golden stars i check 3 stars My favorite character, Peter, was portrayed differently than his Disney, film and novel counterparts He also isn t explicitly called Peter Pan either , but he was still the boastful yet playful and free spirited character that audiences have come to love His developing relationship with Molly was truly a treasure to read as it unfolded, and despite being new characters, I grew fond [...]

    15. This book is horrible Full disclosure once upon a time, I thought Dave Barry was funny in the 80 s so not a total hater But I m a huge J.M Barrie fan or Johnny Depp as J.M Barrie chokengtitik

      titikchokengs I read it b c I heard on comingsoon they re going to make it into a movie.Read the real Peter Pan alongside it I was doing that and you ll feel totally insulted.The originalWe ve all seen the Disney cartoon and the legend is so big , so we think we know it But no It s so well written Every s [...]

    16. I m not entirely sure what to say about this book I enjoyed it, it was funbut I felt oddly distanced from the characters and the story I never felt fully invested I don t know if that was just a me thing or if it was the book, but even so I did manage to get all the way through And it was a nice, fun read.

    17. This book by Dave Barry is very similar to the original Peter Pan But has action and includes info It tells the adventure of Peter and his friends all of whom are orphaned on their journey across the sea while being chased by the most dreaded pirate in history Black stache I would recommend this book to fans of Peter Pan and other book like that.

    18. well, there are some mixed feelings towards this book, at first,if you d noticed, i really wanted it, paper back or electronic, didn t matter after i got it, i was still really excited being a peter pan fan and also i really love sea adventures , pirates, fairies and all that, so i started the book head over hills everything about the book, though except for the term starstuff instead of fairy powder , was fine i honestly don t know what went wrong between me and this book, maybe i don t like ad [...]

    19. I m a sucker for all things Peter Pan I wanted to read this because I was interested in the play, but I don t enjoy reading scripts so I thought hey, source material I think this was incredibly inventive prequel to a very well loved story It could have gone horribly wrong, but it only served to make me love the characters even The writing was not my favorite A bit choppy The chapters were very short and bounced around quite a lot perhaps than necessary It is an MG novel, though, so I ll overlo [...]

    20. Pirates and magic Flying and stars I was in before I even opened the book Peter and the Starcatchers is a wonder filled origin story for J.M Barrie s famous boy who never grew up Peter Pan has always been the character with whom I most identify in fiction His eternal dilemma between remaining static in the joys of boyhood and embarking on the greater adventure of growing up is ever poignant as I find myself becoming proactive to prevent my own childlike sensibilities from slipping away.This boo [...]

    21. First in the Peter and the Starcatchers children s fantasy series loosely based upon Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, and Neverland.The StoryIs it fate or happenstance that five lonely orphan boys are being shipped out on a dilapidated ship along with a young but valiant lady, a starcatcher by birth Molly Aster is unexpectedly guarding a valuable treasure from the stars aboard the Never Land A treasure that was somehow switched with the decoy.Under fire from Captain Black Stache, the storm that rises u [...]

    22. In my placement my teacher choose to read to the students, as a relaxing fun literature for the end of the year, a book named Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson On my first glance at the book I assumed that it would be too advanced and confusing to read aloud to the students However, when my teacher begun to read the students froze and was glued with their mouths open to the book s content From there I realized the value of reading to your students Additionally, in one r [...]

    23. Where exactly did Peter Pan come from How come he never ages Just when did he and Tinkerbell meet Ever wonder So did Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson They took it further hence Peter and the Starcatchers The story begins with Peter and four other orphan boys placed on board a ship the Never Land The accommodations are wretched, the voyage even so Peter discovers a locked, guarded trunk with strange properties A girl his age, Molly, seems to be the only other passenger aware of this trunk and very [...]

    24. Sync audio free download week of July 3, 2014 About 2.0 stars to 2.5 stars Probably a better entertainment value for younger readers, Peter and the Starcatchers was a bit of a disappointment for me I don t mind retellings, but this one just annoyed me a tad It could be the narrator s voice he was OK for most of the story, however he did do some truly cringe worthy voices for some of the characters and I guess that put me off In any case, this is a retelling of Peter Pan and goes back to the days [...]

    25. I m a sucker for anything Peter Pan The animated Disney film in 1953 is the first movie I can ever remember seeing in a theater, and I saw it 10 times over 2 days I ve seen just about every version there is, and even read the original book by James M Barrie Peter and the Starcatchers was the basis of the hit Broadway production back in 2012 I somehow managed to miss that one, but I highly recommend the book It s a treat Full of adventure, lots of action and a wry sense of humor, it backtracks to [...]

    26. I enjoyed reading this book For me, the beginning was good, but it was a little slow due to the fact that it was jam packed with ship lingo The story was there, though But I must say that as soon as they got to the island it really picked up After that, I enjoyed it very much What I love about this book as I have said before is that it is not a retelling, it is a prequel to the classic story Peter Pan The illustrations are also amazing, some of them so beautiful that I just stared for a solid mi [...]

    27. How did I not notice that I have this one It looks so interesting This book was thoroughly enjoyable Lighter, middle grade ish, but a fun adventure with interesting world building, lots of humour and action D I m sorry I let it sit neglected on my shelves for so long

    28. When I read this the first time I laughed and finished it kind of quickly and decided it was a good throw away read.When I read it the second time, I laughed really hard But not just laugh, there s actually suspense, grief, friendship, etc.All in all, this book does an adequate job of setting up Peter Pan a personal favorite of mine all the while being a fantastic stand alone novel I haven t gotten to the rest of the series yet coming soon though but I m just very excited about it This book impr [...]

    29. This is maybe closer to a four, or like, three and a half As far as basic issues, there were some typos and that drives me insane Editors need to actually edit Come on, guys.Basically, super cute Not amazing or incredibly well woven, but a good backstory for Peter Pan and good character background Also, decent character development I don t have a lot of thoughts I saw the play version of this first, and both the stage and novel versions had the same spirit I like that.

    30. Peter and the Starcatchers is an absolutely amazing The authors of the book are truly talented, and it is a book that leaves you wanting , as well as feeling somewhat somehow attached to the characters Would definitely recommend
