Peter and the Secret of Rundoon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this action-packed finale to the Starcatchers series, Peter and Molly find themselves in the dangerous land of Rundoon, ruled by an evil king who enjoys watching his pet snake consume those who displease him.

But that's just the beginning of problems facing our heroes, who once again find themselves pitted against the evil shadow-creature Lord Ombra in a struggle to save themselves, not to mention the planet.

It's a wild desert adventure, with rockets, carpets, and camels all flying through the air, zooming toward an unforgettable climax...

Review:

"Kudos to Barry and Pearson for a funny, clever, melodramatic romp." Kirkus Reviews

Rayne Reader, December 30, 2007 (view all comments by Rayne Reader)
Hang onto your socks in this last book of the Peter and the Starcatcher series. This is a great read-aloud, but not at bedtime as you'll want to stay awake as each chapter keeps you hanging. Bouncing back and forth between two story lines, one in each chapter, one just can't wait to finishing one story line to find out what is happening in the other. My favorite moment in the story is when Peter blasts off and is hanging onto the fin of the rocket, I thought it was all over when ....Grab a huge bowl of popcorn and settle in for reading how it all turns out for Peter and Molly.
