Author Name:Pearson, Ridley
When an earthquake strikes Never Land Island, things begin to go terribly wrong.
A mysterious barrel washes ashore and falls into the hands of Captain Hook, who hatches an evil plan.The once-peaceful mermaids, who have always been friends to the natives, have turned violent.
When the mermaids injure some members of the Mollusk tribe, the warriors have no choice but to fight back.Meanwhile, the boys and Shining Pearl and Little Scallop set off on a secret mission to try to make peace with the mermaids.
Instead, they’re captured, and while in captivity they discover the cause of the problem—Blood Tide is poisoning the lagoon and will eventually kill the mermaids.With time running out, the children must figure out a way to save the mermaids and to stop Captain Hook, whose plan threatens to destroy the Mollusk village and change life on Never Land Island forever.
The superlative narration skills of Jim Dale are well employed in this enjoyable installment of the Never Land stories.
Dale maintains an exciting yet comprehendible pace as an earthquake strikes Never Land Island and the Lost Boys manage the ensuing trouble without the help of Peter Pan.
Dale's voice truly shines in bringing to life the characters of Captain Hook, who devises an evil plan to use a mysterious barrel that washed ashore, and Fighting Prawn, the peaceful leader of the native Mollusk Tribe.
When the usually serene mermaids suddenly turn violent and attack anyone in the water with their needle-sharp teeth, Dale portrays them with angry hisses.
With the authors' whimsical story and Dale's outstanding characterizations, this is a delight for children and adults.
