This prequel to Peter Pan is precious.  An adventure to say the least full of imagination, detail, humor and wonderfully developed characters.  Peter and his pals, also orphans, find themselves on a ship, the Never Land.  Along the way they meet Molly daughter of a Starcatcher who talks to porpoises.  As Peter becomes more immersed in learning what a Starcatcher is and the secret of a fantastical trunk, the winds pick up, a band of pirates and thieves invade their territory and before you can say Mollusk Island Peter and company find themselves right there.  Getting lost and found is fraught with danger.  If you ever loved Peter Pan as a kid, you’ll want to keep listening to learn the back story of the art of flying, a crocodile, and a pixie.    And Jim Dale narrates as only Jim Dale knows how.
