Peter and the Star Catchers

by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Oh Peter Pan…. I really enjoyed reading Peter and the Star Catchers by Dave Barry. Peter Pan as a concept is so versatile and can be approached from so many different angles. Telling the story of how Peter became the leader of the lost boys made a great story. The book was well written, with great visual representations and a powerful pull towards turning pages. I look forward to the day when my kids are old enough to read Peter and the Star Catchers, by Dave Barry!

“If Peter was nine, and a new boy came to St. Norbert’s Home for Wayward Boys who said he was ten, why, then, Peter would declare himself eleven. Also, he could spit the farthest. That made him the undisputed leader.”
― Dave Barry, Peter and the Starcatchers
 
“He felt a momentary pang of regret that he had not spent more time with his beloved wife. But it passed when he remembered that the reason he’d gone to sea in the first place was that he had never really liked his beloved wife.”
― Dave Barry, Peter and the Starcatchers
 
“Stache’s attack was perfectly timed, thanks to his veteran-pirate grasp tactics—and a big piece if luck.”
― Dave Barry, Peter and the Starcatchers
 
“There were letters on the bottom, letters he'd seen before, on the ship that had carried him from London, the ship that had broken up on the reef that guarded the island. The letters said: NEVER LAND.
 
Peter looked at it. And then he looked around him--at the lagoon; at the rock where the mermaids (Mermaids!) lounged; at the palm-fringed beach; at the tinkling fairy flitting over his head; at his new friends the Mollusks; at the jungle-covered, pirate-infested mountains looming over it all.
 
Then he looked at the board again, and he laughed out loud.
