Editorial Reviews

The reader-acclaimed Starcatchers series roars to an exciting conclusion in this exciting number. In Peter and the Secret of Rundoon, Peter and Molly find themselves stranded in a harrowing kingdom ruled by a sadist who feeds his enemies to his hungry pet snake. Aside from survival, our brave young heroes have other concerns, not least which of which is the demonic shadow creature Lord Ombra, whose malevolence is on a grander scale. A Peter Pan trilogy with wings of its own.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!  ***Borrowed the audiobook CD’s from the library The cover is definitely a magical adventure that grabs your attention and says read me :) I really do love that Jim Dale has continued as the narrator :)  I love when there is consistency, and my son feels the same way.  We listened to this book to and from school.  It makes our ride enjoyable, and I get to share my book addiction with him. This adventure was just as epic as all the other Peter and the Starcatchers books.  This book links in even more of the Peter Pan nuances and story traits that you know and love.  Peter is an amazing boy with so much courage especially when it comes to saving his friends.  I love that my son gets to hear these lessons as we listen to the books in this series.  Peter and his friends are all present in this story, and then we meet some new friends that I was excited when I heard the names.  There is so much action and stuff happening in this book.  It kept both my son and my attention throughout the whole thing.  I can’t wait to start the next book with my son :) I highly recommend this series to Peter Pan and Tinker Bell fans who want a new take on old stories especially if you are an adventure loving boy or someone who loves one :)  The audio version is a fantastic way to share the story together :)

Another high flying adventure with Peter and the Starcatchers. This adventure has many battles with some very interesting enemies and you find very unlikely alliances.

Peter And The Secrect of Rundoon by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, was the third instalment of the Starcatchers Series. With Peter still horrified by Lord Ombra, he seems to be becoming more and more distant from himself and the other boys (Tubby Ted, Thomas, Prentiss, and James). Probably because Peter has stopped growing, and the rest of the boys still are. In this, we learn more about Peter's family than we ever have before, and we learn about his true feelings for Molly. Meanwhile, Molly and George are becoming closer and closer. With action, adventure, and even a little romance, this was a good continuation of the story.

I have read the Peter and the Starcatchers series for a while and this book is the best one yet! I absolutely love the characters, as well as the gripping story. I feel as though I have met these characters and been best friends forever! It truly is a series worth reading. I give it five stars and a double thumbs up!

Peter and the Secret of Rundoon is a book that I enjoyed reading alot. I strongly recommend this book for it's story line and thrill. It was such a good book that I occaisionally reread some! In order to follow and thoroughly understand this book, you should read Peter and the Starcatchers, and Peter and the Shadow Thieves. This is a "just for fun" book.For example, this book doesn't fit EVERYONE'S intrests, so reading this to a class of students is not the best idea. I did not find this book challenging, but that is just me.It depends on your intrests, and vocabulary. Also, I did not find this book very funny.It is more of an action-drama, but when something funny comes around, it is truly funny. This book DOES NOT have alot of "life lessons".The only thing that I could POSSIBLY say, is "Never leave your friends behind". I found the writing strong enough to suggest that any readers ages 8-10 read with a dictionary. The illistrations were brilliant, but I found myself knowing what would happen on the next page, because the pictures explained so much, which was a partial dissapointment.This mishap has happened to me in multiple other books, so this is not nessesarily a bad thing, nor unique. I was unable to learn about myself, or "learn" in general. Lastly, the characters and their traits were absoultly brilliant. All in all, this was by far one of the best books I have EVER read in my life. Readers, I strongly hope you enjoyed this, and were helped.

I just finished this 3rd book in the series and really enjoyed it. A perfect sequel with more than enough action to keep you going on to the next chapter, with really good "good guys" and really bad "bad guys." I was able to put aside being a grown-up while reading this book and just immerse myself in Peter's world. And I must confess to being teary-eyed at the end. Now I must go back and read the original Peter Pan again. Can't wait 'til my grandson is old enough for this set.
