"Peter and the Shadow Thieves" picks up where "Peter and the Starcatchers" left off, assuming that the listener knows about Peter's previous adventures; so one needs to listen to the two books in sequence. Both books provide us the prequel to J. M. Barrie's "Peter Pan," telling us how Peter acquired the ability to fly, where Tinkerbell came from, how Peter met Captain Hook, and how he came to live on Mollusk Island with the Lost Boys. Only Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson tell Peter's story a whole lot better than J. M. Barrie did. And Jim Dale's narration would justify listening to these audiobooks, even if they hadn't been so well written. In fact, just hearing the masterful Jim Dale imitate the caw of a raven makes "Peter and the Shadow Thieves" worth the purchase price. I recommend this series to anybody -- young or old -- who has an innocent heart, and who can enjoy an adventure story without explicit violence.

If you are a fan of fantasy books and creative story telling then you will love these books! Even though these are books meant for children, you do not need to be a child to appreciate the brilliant story telling and creative reworking of this classic tale. If you are a fan of the Harry Potter Books you will love these especially because they have the same narrator. Jim Dale is amazing. It feels like 20 people are reading me this book not just one.
