Book Overview

While Peter is away from the island, James and the other Lost Boys discover a mysterious cave. Shining Pearl and her sister Little Scallop warn the boys that the cave is a dangerous place, inhabited by a creature known as the Goat Taker-a beast so scary that even the Mollusk tribe fears it. But the boys can't resist trying to discover the cave's secrets. When the first of those secrets turns out to be a tantalizing hint of a famous haunted treasure,...

Nice Chapter Book Spin-Off of the Peter Pan Series by Barry & Pearson

Have you ever wondered what was going on with the Mollusks. The pirates, and The Lost Boys while Peter was away having adventures in Peter and the Starcatchers, Peter and the Shadow Thieves and Peter and the Secrets of Rundoon? Well, this easy chapter book series (billed A Neverland Book) neatly fills that gap quite nicely. This story takes place in between Starcatchers and Shadow Thieves and features James (along with the other lost boys and of course, Shining Pearl and Little Scallop) on a madcap mini-adventure involving a mysterious "monster", pirates, a cursed treasure, and the infamous Black Stache (and his gang). We begin the story with The Lost Boys learning of "The Taker" an evil monster living in the Cave of the Dark Wind and being somewhat interested in proving he too can have adventures, James becomes convinced that he can solve the mystery of The Taker and make the goats of Mollusk Island safe again. Along the way they encounter a lot more adventure and danger than they bargained for...will they discover the identity of The Taker? Is it really a monster? How will Black Stache and his gang of greedy pirates try to foil their plans and try to get the treasure for themselves? And more importantly, will they succeed? You'll have to read to find out! Overall, this is a cute addition to the Neverland stories, though I would wager this is most appropriate for a slightly younger age range than the longer Pan novels Barry and Ridley have written thus far. Cave of the Dark Wind comes in at 166 pages and is a nice early chapter book with large spacing and type (and some nice black and white pen and ink illustrations) with an entertaining and easy to follow storyline that younger fans of Peter Pan and get into easily on their own (best for ages 4-8) and it would certainly make a great read aloud story for younger readers! I give it four stars, both of my kids loved it and we all hope that there will be many more of these to come...we absolutely loved reading more about the Mollusks, the Lost Boys, the stranded pirates and of course the mermaids!!!

Great Quick Read

As an avid fan of anything to do with the Peter and the Starcatchers series it only made sense for me to be excited about the NeverLand Books. The 2 books are not as good as the Peter and Starcatchers books of course but they are great companions to the series. If you didn't like the first one "Escape from Carnivale" don't worry "Cave of Dark Wind" is much better. I think the reason this is because Carnivale was lacking anything to do with real Pirate topics like treasure! Fortunately the second book Dark Wind has the topic throughout the story which makes for a much more exciting book. I would recommend to anyone who likes to read about Peter Pan or Captain Hook. Have fun!

Back to Neverland

My daughter says Cave of the Dark Wind is just as exciting as Escape from the Carnivale. She can't wait for more Never Land Adventures.
