Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Describes the youthful adventures of J.M. Barrie's classic character, Captain Hook, from his days at Eton to his voyages on the high sea.
Describes the youthful adventures of J. M. Barrie's classic character, Captain Hook, from his days at Eton to his voyages on the high sea. With his long black curls, a shadowy family tree, and an affinity for pet spiders, James Matthew bears little resemblance to his starched-collar, blue-blooded peers at Eton. Dubbed King Jas., he stops at nothing to become the most notorious underclassman in the prestigious school's history. For James, sword fighting, falling in love with an Ottoman Sultana, and challenging the Queen of England are all in a day's skullduggery. But when he sets sail on a ship with a mysterious mission, King Jas.' dream of discovering a magical island quickly turns into an unimaginable nightmare. Screenwriter J. V. Hart traces the evolution of J. M. Barrie's classic villain from an eccentric outcast to the scourge of Neverland. Arriving at Eton amongst the blue-blooded students, James Matthew is different from his peers in style and presence, yet determined to make a name for himself, he takes on a dangerous persona that precedes him throughout his school years and beyond when he decides to set sail on a ship with a dangerous crew to points unknown.
