This is the humorous and fantastical story of what happened before Peter Pan met Wendy.

The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Aster, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.
