Book Review: Peter and the Shadow Thieves by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Peter and the Shadow Thievesis the second book that describes the back story of Peter Pan (see the third book review here). It follows Peter's adventures with Molly while dealing with the very frightening creatures, shadow thieves, that are trying to get the powerful star stuff.

I think the story is fun and I love the idea of expanding on Peter Pan's history, but I found that the book was just too long. The adventure parts were exciting and quite interesting, but it just seems to go on and on, the ending simply being prolonged for no real reason. I think it could have used some good cutting and then would have been much better (and thus more accessible).

s-factor: !

Maybe a few scattered words (pirates!)

mrg-factor: none

v-factor: ->

Some action sequences, and the shadow thieves are pretty frightening.

Overall rating: ***
