That's when the trouble starts - they run into a fierce storm and a strange ship sailed by men who would love to capture a mermaid.

Yet another great Star Catcher book!

Another great novel in the family-friendly Star Catcher series. Again, like all the others in the series, this novella has great writing and benefits from really great narration.

In Escape from the Carnivale we hear another adventure involving Peter's friends and Fighting Prawn's daughters on the island of Neverland while Peter is away. [SPOILER ALERT] It's an adventure with intrepid kids, nasty pirates, and a nasty set of visitors to the island who sail a circus-like ship complete with nautical curiosities.

Highly recommended.

If this is your first book in the series, you'll want to read Peter and the Star Catchers first. There are two other novellas like this in the series, btw.

- Nothing really matters

Love the Peter Pan series, this one was just OK

I have a collection of the Peter Pan books that my son and I have listened to or read. We enjoy them. This one was very short. It was entertaining but compared to the others it was just ok. Good, but not Great.
