Peter and the Secret of Rundoon, by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
This book, Peter and the Secret of Rundoon, is a very good read.
Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have taken the original story of
Peter Pan and brushed it up, making everything make sense.
This is the last book in the "Peter and the Starcatchers" trilogy,
and if you haven't read this series, I highly recommend it. It
gives a new view to the old Disney classic, showing how Peter
became who he was, why he flew, all the while incorporated into
a gripping plot line. The first two books in the series, Peter and
the Starcatchers and Peter and the Shadow Thieves, are very
good reads and I recommend the whole trilogy to anyone who
enjoys a good gripping adventure story. In this story, you will
find yourself traveling to the exotic Middle East, while witnessing
flying camels and giant snakes. While keeping the whole
"Neverland" feel, it also makes the whole story make sense by
using an imaginative force, called Starstuff, thought up by the
authors that controls the supernatural happenings on the Island,
known as "Neverland" to the many Disney classics' fans.
Although this book is a twist on the original story, I would have
to say it is much, much better and an excellent read. :)
