Peter and the Shadow Thieves Cover

 

Staff Pick

A perfect adventure for a lazy summer day, Peter and the Shadow Thieves is Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's thrilling follow-up to Peter and the Starcatchers. The new book is every bit as clever and exciting, as it sweeps us from the fantasia of Neverland into the cold fog of Victorian London, introducing even more unforgettable characters along the way.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this riveting and adventure-packed follow-up to Peter and the Starcatchers, we discover Peter leaving the relative safety of Mollusk Island — along with his trusted companion Tinker Bell — for the cold, damp streets of London. On a difficult journey across the sea, he and Tink discover the dark and deadly, slithering part-man/part-creature Lord Ombra. It seems that the dreaded Ombra has a variety of mysterious powers including the ability to make shadows disappear. When Peter reaches London, he sets out to find the indomitable Molly. Together they must combat Ombra?s terrible forces to both protect the Starcatchers and the treasured starstuff and most importantly to rescue Molly?s mother from the clutches of evil.

Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have done it again — written a compulsively readable, impossible-to-put-down tale that will delight readers of all ages.

Review:

Review:

"[T]wo veteran writers for adults do not disappoint....[A]tmospheric backdrops...a deliciously creepy villain who steals souls from shadows. Readers will relish the chance to further explore the backstory of a favorite childhood tale..." Booklist
