Peter and the Shadow Thieves by Dave Barry and Ridiley Pearson

Peter and the Shadow Thieves by Dave Barry and Ridiley Pearson is the second book in a unique series about Peter Pan. The first book is Peter and the Starcatchers and I totally recommend it. I read that one before the forum was ever conceived. Like any series, I believe it is best to read from book one on.

Before I get to the second book, I have to quickly sum up the first. Most of the known and beloved characters are the same in this series, it’s just a different twist on how Peter became who he was. He is not referred to as Peter Pan, only Peter. Tinker Bell is there too!

Summary:

The second book is a continuation of Peter’s adventures on Never Land. The Others are pursuing the Starcatchers to retrieve the box of Starstuff lost in the first book. (Know you’ll understand why the first one needs to be read first…I think that was a little redundant, but oh well.) He flies from Never Land back to merry old London to find Molly. (She’s much cooler than Wendy could ever hope to be.) The duo then set out to find Molly’s dad who is a senior Starcatcher and warn him that the Others are right on his tail.

But there is a new member of the Others…he is not a man by any means. I’m not sure how to describe him. When he is described, the image a conjure up is one similar to a Dementor. (For those of you who have not read Harry Potter for whatever reason, this reference means nothing to you. And, no, Ringwrath will not fit here.) He can steal shadows and control people and move like the fog. He hates light so Tinker Bell comes in handy.

Opinion:

I so totally recommend these two books. But read them. They’re a quick read.
