        It was a great backstory of Peter Pan's first ever adventures. I highly recommend this crazy, fast pace story.

          Peter, an orphaned boy with only one memory of who he thinks is his mother, is aboard a ship that soon crashes onto an island. Peter there learns about the island and a secret about the stardust. I recommend this book to Peter Pan lovers. It's worth the fast-paced ride!

                  If you like Dave Barry's books and you want to read one I recommend to read this book first because it is the first one he has made.
