Publisher's Summary

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....

Curious, Sarah and Aidan begin to decipher the mysterious document. At first it’s a game - unraveling the mystery piece by piece, each piece leading them to a new, deeper puzzle.But soon the game turns strange - and scary. They discover that the “stories” are real, and that what they thought was a fictional battle between good and evil is still going on. And the scariest part is: They have become part of it.

Pursued by a being that can take any form and will stop at nothing to get what it wants from them, Aidan and Sarah embark on a desperate, thrilling quest for help - a quest that leads them to some unforgettable people in some unlikely places, including one that’s not supposed to exist at all. At each step they must solve new puzzles and escape new dangers, all the while knowing that if they fail, the evil they are fleeing will be let loose on an unsuspecting world.

    Story
    "From wood and brass to plastic"

    The Star Catcher series prior to this latest installment was really charming and loveable. Aimed at a younger audience and taking place in the nineteenth century, it was unique and stood in contrast to the various Harry Potter knock-off series that dot the landscape. It was beautifully narrated to boot.

    This new Star Catcher book modernizes, Americanizes, Disney-fies, young-adult-ifies, and commercialises the series. The story is brought into the present day, shifted to the United States, replanted in Disneyworld, recast with teens and a twenty-something, and now makes frequent references to modern, brand-name goods and services.

    I'm disappointed. Reading this new book felt exactly the same as reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I imagine the authors are trying to cater to their aging (teen-aging) and primarily American audience and hoping for a movie deal with Disney and some product placement lucre from Apple, Google, Starbuck's, etc. Fair enough, but the series no longer seems special, at least to me.

    "Another great Neverland book"

    Still a very fun, fast paced book. I really liked it. I so loved the first three and Jim Dale that it was a little hard to get used to a different narrator. I still highly recommend this book and this series.

    "The Bridge Too Far!"

    We have listened to all of the Peter and the Star-catcher's books and were excited to find a new release in the series. This book is nothing like the previous works, and it is truly awful! We stuck with it for one hour hoping it would get better, but it never did. The narrator is OK, but even the great Jim Dale couldn't make this book enjoyable. Save your credit and look elsewhere for something you will be able to enjoy.

    "Disappointing Finale"

    Compared to the rest of the series was rather a disappointment. The attempt to bring this story into the present day just didn't quite work. The narration was especially a disappointment after the fantastic narration of the first four books. Oh, well.

    Where does The Bridge to Never Land rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Bridge to NeverLand is a well narrated and enjoyable audiobook. The story has it merits and does a good job bringing Peter Pan into 2011.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sarah Copper was my favorite. I admired her determination, passion, and perseverance towards her companions and her journey.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    I like MacLeod Andrew's. He sounds a lot like David Pittu from the 39 clues audiobooks. Great job on the female voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Sarah and J.D. finally found their way to Neverland. When their hard work paid off and meeting the face behind the legend. Another moment was when Sarah got stabbed by one of the villains.


    Any additional comments?

    As a person who grew up reading Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's Peter Pan novels, this is a solid and enjoyable conclusion to their series. If you are just starting, I recommend beginning with their first novel Peter and the Starcatchers.

    I have a lot of the Peter Pan Books, so I am a little biased. But I enjoyed the story and would recommend it! Excellent entertainment.

    "Disappointing as an audible book"
    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

    "A Must For Fans of Starcatchers"

    What a treat for anyone who loved the Peter and the Starcatcher series. I constantly enjoyed the modern take on the series. A pleasant surprise! The narrator did a great job keeping the story interesting and bringing the characters to life. Jim Dale was a tough act to follow, but great job!!!

    "An awesome new adventure."

    I miss Jim Dale!! But as the main characters are from the USA...an american voice is appropriate. He (Andrews) does a fantastic job!! The story is sweet...a lot happens quickly to get the story going...but then it is a grand ride...for a few chapters I was worried it might enlist the help of those other Ridley Pearson adventurers....but not this book anyway.... Keep writing them please..can never get enough of the Starcatchers!!!

    "GREAT BOOK!!"

    I thought that this was a great book! I started listening to it yesterday and I couldn't stop till it was over. I think it's great how at the end they made it to where it sounds like there will be another book in the series. Keep up the good work.
