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, Captain Hook and his band of cutthroat pirates quickly join the hunt. Before long, the children are fleeing for their lives in a dark and deadly underground labyrinth...and their only hope of escape is to solve the mystery of the Cave of the Dark Wind.

    " Shorter book about some adventures the lost boys had while Peter was away (in the Shadow Thieves story). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 2/19/2014

    " Cute, fast read. I wanted to read this because it was written by Dave Barry (who I generally think is super funny). I wanted to see how he wrote for kids. It was cute. It's part of a series published by Disney about Peter Pan. This book was about some adventures by the Lost Boys. It was fun to read since those characters are so in my head from the movie. I liked the idea of learning what happens to them after the movie... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 2/15/2014

    " This is book 2 in the Never Land Adventure series by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. It's a short story that compliments the Peter and the Starcatchers books. I enjoyed this story more than the first one in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arianna Brooks | 2/15/2014

    " Very good book. It had adventure and everything. I really injoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 1/27/2014

    " To me this felt like Lost Boys meets the Goonies. But I liked it. It was amazingly fleshed out for a short story. The Lost Boys (minus Peter) plus one of the Natives, Shining Pearl, travel into a cave looking for treasure and trying to avoid the "Goat-taker" Meanwhile, the dastardly Captain Hook plus cronies follow them in. Add in a curse, mysterious noises, and a maze of tunnels, and you have quite the adventure. I would recommend reading this after reading at least a few of the Peter and the Starcatchers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sadi | 1/26/2014

    " Like the other ones in this series if you have not read at least the first book (Peter and the Starcatchers or something like that) you have no idea what is going on or who the characters are. Also an author note that this is for younger childern but I oddly did not see how the language was for younger children in any manner. If you are reading it to them than yes its fine but if reading on their own there may be some language barriers that a parent will have to help with. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JC | 1/22/2014

    " Another quick and fun story in these short tales from the Neverland island. This time some of the little ones head off to find the goat snatcher but get into a lot more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/19/2014

    " Same great writing as Peter and the Starcatchers. A great short in-between book. Tells some of the adventures the Lost Boys are having while Peter is off on his adventures. My 9 year old son loves these books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 12/26/2013

    " funny, suspenseful, well-written exciting adventure for 3rd-4th grade reading level. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 12/20/2013

    " Fun, brief "between the novels" story for younger readers involving Peter Pan's Lost Boys, their friends from the Mollusk tribe, & Captain Hook's pirates searching a mysterious cave for treasure & a sinister presence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/18/2013

    " This is a fun story about an adventure on Mullosk Island(Neverland)with the lost boys, pirates and indians. It can be read at any time after the original, Peter and the Starcatchers. A very good, fun, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 12/6/2013

    " Cute book in the Peter and the Star Catcher's series. It's supposedly written for younger children, but it has the same feel as the rest of the series to me (minus Peter) - it's just shorter. Highly recommend the audio read by Jim Dale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janis | 12/4/2013

    " Simpler, stand-alone, story from the Peter Pan series. Would be good for younger children, if they don't mind a mild scary part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 12/1/2013

    " Review by Blake: Really exciting with almost as much excitement as the Peter and the Starcatchers books. It tells of the Lost Boys and Little Scallop battling with Hook and his not so cut throat band of pirates. It was amazing and I can't wait to read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audra | 11/28/2013

    " This is a great series for children and adults. I am glad it is popular and Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson are writing more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/28/2013

    " Another Neverland book, also very easy listening. These books aren't near as good as Peter and TSC, but are fun and easy. "

    " Very good adventure story for small children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicolas | 9/1/2013

    " I enjoyed this more than the first Neverland book (Escape from the Carnivale). This one focuses more on the pirates and lost boys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hiba | 11/4/2012

    " This is definitely the best Never Land book (not including the Starcatchers series). A great adventure, lots of suspense, and short enough that I don't feel guilty for reading it in the middle of the school week. ;) "
