Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Enchanting I was totally enchanted by this audio book that describes how Peter Pan and the Lost Boys came about. It is full of wondrous magic, pirates, a giant crocodile and even the fairy dust that makes Peter fly. . My daughter insisted that I listen to this book. Her teacher read it to her at school a few years ago and held her class in rapt attention. I am so glad I finally listened to her. . I am not going to tell you anything that happens in the book as I don't want to spoil a thing for you. . If you are looking for a book to read to your child or if you want to relive a magical part of your childhood, make this the next one on your list. I can't wait to start listening to 'Peter and the Shadow Thieves'. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome This is what happens before the "Peter and Wendy" stories. The authors create a great idea about Peter Pan's dark past

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A CLASSIC I love this book because it explains sooo much! Like how Capt. Hook and Peter met, how Capt. Hook lost his hand, where Tinker Bell came from and how come Peter doesn't need pixie dust to fly and many more interesting things about Peter and Neverland. If you haven't added it to your collection yet than your crazy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enchanting! We purchased this book while in Disney Orlando this past summer.When I started to read it I couldn't put it down. The story is very imaginative and I'm sure will capture a child's imagination like the movie did for me over forty years ago. If you have a child who is an avid reader I strongly recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Edge of your seat novel! It may seem like a long but within the first of 79 chapters, you're hooked. It is a prelude to JM Barrie's Peter Pan and an awesome one at that. I'd even venture to say that this was even better than the original. It follows the adventures of young orphan Peter as he boards the Never Land, a ship bound for a foreign land but his new friend Molly learns of a pirate ship hunting the Never Land, it's the Sea Devil captained by the fearsome Black Stache!
