Show synopsis This is the New York Times bestselling prequel to J. M. Barrie's beloved classic Peter Pan. Discover the origins of Peter Pan in this swashbuckling tale! When Peter, along with his fellow orphans, boards the Never Land, it is only the start of his adventures. Befriending Molly, he discovers a treasure chest of starstuff - the most magical substance ever known to man. Peter and Molly must stop it falling into the hands of a dastardly (but eerily familiar) pirate and his murderous crew. Shipwrecked, helped by mermaids, captured by savages and attacked by a giant crocodile - will they ever succeed? It is a must for Peter Pan fans (young or old)! These action-packed, magical adventures with black-and-white illustrations are absorbing and fast paced. A film of the book is currently in development, with Gary Ross (director of The Hunger Games) named as the director! You can read the whole series: Peter and the Shadow Thieves (9781406351842) and Peter and the Secret of Rundoon (9781406351835).
