Meanwhile, back in Never Land, a tribal war is under way, and while Peter is off fighting to save the world, a young Mollusk princess has no choice but to join forces with sinister pirates to save her island from the vicious Scorpions.
Peter and the Secret of Rundoon is a wild desert adventure - with flying camels, magic carpets, and evil shadows - that literally zooms toward an unforgettable and unimaginable climax. Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have teamed together once again to pen a story with unrelenting action and adventure that can be enjoyed by listeners of all ages.

I think Jim Dale is my favorite narrator. He is so wonderful to listen to and the stories of Peter, Molly, George, the boys, etc are so exciting it's difficult to stop the book to do other things.
Hours of great listening! My kids (8 and 11) and I started listening to the adventures of Peter and the Starcatchers in the car. They became so hooked (no pun intended:o)they insisted we keep listening mornings at breakfast before school and when cleaning up after dinner. We really enjoyed each of these books and have moved on to the Never Land series. These books worked for me and now my kids love to use their imagination listening instead of watching movies in the car.
Our sincere appreciation to the very talented Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson for this gift, excellently narrated by my favorite Jim Dale.
Do your kids a favor, turn off the TV, turn off the video games and turn on their imagination by listening to a really good Audiobook.
This is number three of four full length books (and some shorter books) in the Peter Pan / Neverland prequel series. They are very well written, very well narrated, and thoroughly entertaining family reading for kids and adults.
Treat yourself to this excellent series.
Just plain entertaining. I recommended it to a colleague at work for his teenage children. I'm enjoying different a genre since joining audible. It has broadened my horizons. Sail on captain!
I like the way Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson descriptively point a character's decision out the whole entire playing it out completely (or semi-completely) in the different variations of circumstances. Also the balance between settings is laid very well. I can't think of any better way to write it, or of how I would improve it other than playing out exactly how the camel figured out how to fly and the transitions between the two states: being in contact with the Star Stuff and not being in contact with the Star Stuff.
Thank you to Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson for a great story!
From the first Starcatchers novel it set up a great world that could continue if it wanted or not. After the second book and all this talk of Rundoon, the place itself was a bit flat. What could have been a great place to see was kind of wasted. A sub plot involving the islanders is just kinda there and all in all the bad guys lose for reasons you can guess. This isn't to say the story is bad, just a bit wanting. After two stellar books a third is always hard to pull off.
Jim Dale as always gives a stellar performance making you want to keep listening.
Still give this a go. It's a decent entry in an altogether great series.
