Friends and authors, Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson wanted to collaborate on a rollicking good book for kids and the result was "Peter and the Starcatchers". Conceived as a prequel to J.M. Barrie's original story, "Starcatchers" finds the hero, Peter, as a curious, but as yet, non-flying orphan about to embark on a swashbuckling journey across the high seas. A succession of four more titles in the best selling series has proven that the 100-year-old story of "Peter Pan" is as youthful as ever. Barry and Pearson's book was adapted for the stage in 2011 (just like J.M. Barrie's book 100 years before) to eventually win 5 Tony Awards for bringing the story of Peter, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys to audiences once again. Illustrations by Greg Call.
