Reviews

The sequel to Peter and the Starcatchers finds Peter and Tinker Bell in London seeking Molly's help in defeating Lord Ombra, who is desperate to get his hands on magical missing starstuff. Ages 10-up. (Sept.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Gr 5-8-Peter Pan makes another delightful appearance in Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's sequel (Disney Editions, 2006) to Peter and the Starcatchers (Hyperion, 2004). This time, unwelcome visitors arrive on Neverland in search of the starstuff that Molly and her father took back to England at the end of the first book. The mysterious Lord Ombra is annoyed to find the magical substance gone. He reveals his ability to steal one's shadow-and one's soul. The crew sets sail for London to kidnap Molly and offer Molly's starcatcher father a trade-Molly for the starstuff. Peter overhears the plan and is determined to warn his friend, so he and Tinker Bell follow the ship. In London, Peter and Molly team up with Molly's suitor, George Darling, to outwit Lord Ombra. What follows is a delicious adventure through London's foggy streets which ends at Stonehenge during a lunar eclipse. Veteran narrator Jim Dale delivers a flawless performance that will keep listeners riveted to the story. Bits from the original Peter Pan are cleverly slipped in, and Peter even has an encounter with author J.M. Barrie. This is one of those rare instances where the sequel is even better than the very fine original. Barrie would be pleased.-Tricia Melgaard, Centennial Middle School, Broken Arrow, OK Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
