Look Who Has Written A Kids' Book!
kidsreads.com arrived today so I took a look hoping I would be inspired to write something about new books I haven't read. What should I see there under Cool New Books for September but Peter Pan and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Hmmm, I thought. Could this be the Dave Barry? The one whose column I occasionally read and whose books my twenty-one-year-old nameless relative can't get enough of?
Well, it is. Barry and Pearson (who I've never heard of but, hey, he's got a really top-notch website) have written a prequel to Peter Pan. My faithful readers (that would be me) are aware that as a young, young child I had an obsession with Peter. I may have to check this book out.
Dave Barry has a blog, by the way. Yeah, I know. Who doesn't?
