We read this for kids book club - boys and girls ages 9-10. These are our comments:

"Full of adventure! If you love pirates, you will love this book."

"This book is an introduction to Peter Pan."

"A cool book - pretty much a prequel to Peter Pan, etc."

"I like Peter and the Starcatchers because it was adventurous - like when Peter goes from St. Norbert's to a boat to an island and lots of stuff happens in between."

"This book is obsessed with flying stuff, which is awesome."

A lot of fun, and whether it's canon or not, it could be. Maybe it should be. A fine book for read-aloud! Keeps you guessing, especially when there are several sets of rival villains and enemies for young Peter and friends.

Man. If I ever meet someone who likes this book more than me and Dave Barry, I will die. Seriously. If you liked the books I posted happy-yay-read-it comments on, then take my word and READ THIS BOOK. It has SUCH imagination, description of Neverland, Hook and the pirates, Peter and the Lost Boys, and so much more than you would ever expect a Peter Pan story to hold. It is extremely clever, and I am proud to admit I own them all and have read them until all of the spine had to be duct-taped together.... :)

A nice mix of adventure and humor.

Dave Barry is such a good author! I promise you that on every page you will laugh out loud or grab your hair from suspense.
