Well, I picked this and another from this series up at a big book sale. I like reading these short elementary books as books to just enjoy a chapter or two of before bed – and to scope out fun books to read to my daughter as she gets older.
When I picked this one up to read, I tried looking at the books to determine if there was a series to the books. Neither book indicated a number. So I picked up Blood Tide first. Well, I came to find out when I added to my currently reading list on goodreads, that this is book 3. Haha. Oh well.
This book did not seem dependent on the previous two books – which was good. It just may have happened at a later time period.
This book was entertaining. It did not have Peter in it. This is a story of an event that happened while Peter was in London. It was fun to see how the Lost Boys are without Peter around. I also liked that Shining Pearl and Little Scallop were much bigger characters in this book.
It’s a relatively short book and includes pictures every few pages. It’s perfect for a young reader just beginning chapter books – of course, you’d have to read the big chapter book in the first Starcatchers book to understand who the characters are.
The book moved at a quick pace and kept me interested. It was fun seeing the two different story lines and then to watch them come together at the end. I thought this book was really well done. I really enjoy the concept of the Starcatchers also. If you enjoyed the Starcatchers books, you should pick this up as a quick addition.
