Peter and the Starcatchers
Peter and the Starcatchers | Dave Barry
Don'teven "think" of starting this bookunless you're sitting in a comfortable chair and have lots of time. Afast-paced, impossible-to-put-down adventure awaits as the young orphan Peterand his mates are dispatched to an island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. Theyset sail aboard the "Never" "Land," a ship carrying a precious and mysterious trunk inits cargo hold, and the journey quickly becomes fraught with excitement anddanger. Discoverrichly developed characters in the sweet but sophisticated Molly, the scary butfamiliar Black Stache, and the fearless Peter. Treacherous battles withpirates, foreboding thunderstorms at sea, and evocative writing immerses thereader in a story that slowly and finally reveals the secrets and mysteries ofthe beloved "Peter Pan."

I really enjoyed this retelling of Peter Pan! I'm really not a fan of the original story, but for some reason, love almost any retelling of it that I can get my hands on 😂 This one was really creative! On to the sequel!

Starting my day off with books and tea! 📚🫖

Thank you to @LeahBergen for posting lovely photos of your different tea cups! We have so many pretty tea cups that have been passed down from my grandma & great-grandma, but we never use them. Seeing your posts inspired me to finally enjoy them 😊

LeahBergen Aww, how lovely! And what a gorgeous teacup. 😘 1w

More than halfway through the #MermaidMarathonReads and finished with all the audiobooks I planned to read. This one was swashbuckingly good fun!! 🏴‍☠️ ⚔️ A great prequel to the Peter Pan story and narrated by Jim Dale, one of my favorite narrators. #72 #BookSpinBingo #2 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 #Pantone2022 #MermaidMarathonReads

I saw the Broadway production of Peter and the Starcatcher back in 2012. I loved it, and wasn‘t aware of the book it was based on so picked up a copy. The #FairyTaleReadingChallenge gave me an excuse to finally read it. Unfortunately, the book wasn‘t nearly as magical as the play. The anti-Native racism is extreme, as is the fatphobia. The book is WAY too long and has too many characters. Sadly this is a rare case where the book isn‘t better.

A non-canon prequel to the classic neverland tale. Good not great.

Things were going fine (if a bit dully) up until a blatantly racist scene in which one of the grown ups earnestly teaches a group of children about “savages” and their “primitive” ways and FOR GODS SAKE WTAF. I get that it‘s a Peter Pan retelling but there is absolutely no good reason to include a scene like that. It amazes me how irresponsible people can be when they‘re writing for *children* 🤬🔥. Not quite 1st for #24in48

24in48 WHAT A BUMMER, but glad you're joining us for #24in48! 4y
Sharanya @24in48 my other book is going fantastically so far, so I‘m having a great time, regardless of terrible books! ♥️ 4y
24in48 @sharanya Glad the other read is going better! 4y
pppooraikul I read this when I was about eight or nine and thought it was fun, not realizing the racism you mentioned. Seeing your post terrifies me a bit. Such things should‘t happen especially in children books! 😡 4y

I read about a third of it. It‘s pretty good, I just wasn‘t in love with it. I think any Peter Pan or Pirate fan would go crazy for it though. My niece devoured them.

I have been wanting to read this book for a long while now. So when #audible had it on sale I snatched it up. It is the story of how Peter Pan came to be. It is filled with mystery, excitement and humor. The pieces all come together nicely in the end.

Melissa_J I loved this book! Still have to read the rest of the series. 5y

My FAVORITE book series EVER. I still prefer "preteen" novels even though I'm nearly 20. The magic that I feel when reading these books is unreal.

That's one way to hide how much you spent on a gift...spotted in my library's used corner. 😂

rubyslippersreads I used to always do that when giving a book as a gift. I think booksellers refer to a jacket like that as "price clipped." ? 6y
BookFreakOut @rubyslippersreads Did not know that, fun fact for the day! 6y

This series (or any Peter Pan book for that matter) reminds me of #innocence. I was in love with Peter Pan as a kid, and I remember constantly wishing for him to come and take me to never land with him 💚 #augustofpages #bookphotochallenge #day22

This book is easily one of my favourites. I love retellings, and I love Peter Pan, so I can say with lots of weight in both of these fields that this book is very very good

Peter Pan is one of my very favorite stories. I don't know why I hadn't read this before but I'm so glad I did. I stayed up until 3:30 to finish it which hopefully signals the end of my reading slump. Though I may have a bit of a book hangover from this...
