Review: Peter and the Starcatchers (Peter and the Starcatchers #1)

User Review  - Kathryn Parsley - Goodreads

I love this series! Peter Pan's origin story is worth the read and it's so interesting to see how so many facets of the story we know (how Hook became "Hook", where did Tinker Bell come from, how did the crocodile get a taste for Hook's blood, etc.) came to be! Read full review

User Review  - Sofia - Goodreads

Two of my favorite things: Peter Pan and origin/prequel stories. Fun adventure and imaginative way to explain how Peter became Peter Pan and Hook became Hook. True to the spirit, if not always the letter of Barrie. Recommended for the young and young at heart. Read full review
