    The year is 1902 - it's been 23 years since Peter and the Lost Boys returned from Rundoon. Since then, nobody on the island has grown a day older, and the Lost Boys continue their friendship with the Mollusk tribe and their rivalry with Captain Hook. Meanwhile, in London, Molly has married George Darling and is raising three children: Wendy, Michael, and John. One night, a visitor appears at her door; it's James, one of Peter's original Lost Boys.

    What did you love best about Peter and the Sword of Mercy?

    All the Peter and the Starcatcher books are awesome. The consistency in the readers voices for the characters really allows everyone to follow the story with interest. My 8 year old and my 16 year old stayed interested the entire series.


    What other book might you compare Peter and the Sword of Mercy to and why?

    There are two other series which have some basis of history mixed in with entertainment, the Percy Jackson series, and the Gregor Overlander series.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Dale – was your favorite?

    Hook

    After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

    Aidan and Sarah Cooper have no idea what they’re getting into one afternoon when they discover a mysterious coded document in a secret compartment of an antique English desk their father recently bought at an auction. Something about the document seems familiar to Sarah, and that night she realizes what it is: the document seems to be referring to some books she has read - the Starcatchers series, about the origin of Peter Pan. But how could that be? The document seems far older than the books. And of course, the books are just stories....

    What did you like best about The Bridge to Never Land? What did you like least?

    I loved the Peter and the Starcatchers books. The different readers made the characters come to life. In this book, they didn't do that and they had a the same male reader for the main female and male character making it difficult to understand who was talking. Did not make the characters come to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It keeps Peter and the Starcatchers alive.


    Could you see The Bridge to Never Land being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    nope
