Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

This whole premise of this story started when Ridley Pearson's daughter asked how Peter Pan met Captain Hook. The author's Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson actually played in a band together for years and would write music together, but they had never thought of doing any writing together. This is the first of four books they have since written for the Disney Editions series.

In this first book, they tell the story of how Peter came to Neverland and how he and Captain Hook became enemies. I found the book to be very exciting, and very much like Airborn by Kenneth Opal.

  1. It's a fun book. But it completely contradicts what J.M. Barrie wrote. Yes, Barrie HAD a backstory for Peter and this is NOT it. It's like Barry & Pearson never bothered to read the original stories.

    Try this Peter Pan continuation... it's based on Barrie's idea for more.!
