A delightful combination of magical fantasy, adventure, good versus evil, and humor. Peter is the head of a group of ragtag orphans. Nobody really knows how old they are and Peter picks his age as older than whoever joins the group. They get sent on a ship, the NeverLand, which is barely sea worthy and has a very rough sea crew. But Peter is clever, doesn't take no for an answer and enjoys coming up with schemes, for example, to get better food for the group when they are fed some mucky murky "soup" that has lives worms and sometimes a mouse or rat. Molly, a more respectable girl and her "attendant" Mrs. Bumbrake accompanies her on the Neverland. But then there is this issue of a trunk that seems to glow. What is in the trunk? Why is it so guarded? And how do a rat fly?
The way the story is told, with the smart-alecky dialogue is funny, witty and entertaining. Highly recommend this fast action story to boys and girls who love magic, pirates and adventure.
