Currently I’m enjoying The Secrets of Dripping Fang Forest, the Peter Pan books by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and The Spiderwick Chronicles. The Narnia books are always good, also. One of these days I’d like to read the Redwall series.
Peter Pan by Dave Barry? JM Barrie surely?
And who’s Ridley Pearson?
Okay, it’s not strictly Peter Pan. It’s a trilogy of books about the beginnings of Peter Pan…in order they are Peter and the Starcatchers , Peter and the Shadow Thieves, and Peter and the Secret of Rundoon. I’ve read the first one, am partway through the second, and am waiting for the third to come out in paperback.
Dave Barry is a humor columnist who has also written books, and Ridley Pearson is a novelist, apparently of detective fiction. At least, according to the book, he was the first American to be awarded the Raymond Chandler/Fulbright Fellowship in Detective Fiction at Oxford University.
I would like to read the original Peter Pan, though.
Oh, and the best thing about book 2 is that Peter meets a James Barrie…who somehow knows about Tink…
