Sounds of the season
Suffused with magic, Peter and the Starcatchers, by the unlikely, but decidedly dynamic duo of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, is a fabulous tale of high adventure and a treat for the whole family. You'll meet pitiless pirates, treacherous traitors, a few good grownups and best of all Peter (observe how his story pans out), the intrepid leader of a band of orphan boys, and his new, fearless friend Molly, as they risk everything to recover a battered trunk that holds the stuff of stars and the power of good and evil. Jim Dale, the wizard of audio narration, is in top form.
