Now available on DVD from Walt Disney Home Entertainment is Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle For The Book, featuring 8 exciting adventures along with 10 "Jake's Neverland Pirate School" Cartoon Shorts. Each DVD come with a a "free" Checkerboard Bandana Game.

Jake and the Never Land Pirates first premiered on Disney Junior in 2011 and has won the hearts of critics and young fans. The series is set in the world of Disney's Peter Pan and centers on three pirate children Jake, Izzy and Cubby. They spend their days with their parrot Skully aboard their live ship named Bucky as they set off a new adventure. Of course Captain Hook and his crew are never too far behind them.

The episodes on this single-disc DVD are:

Battle For The Book - Parts 1 & 2 - After Captain Hook and his crew goes to London and steals Wendy's magical book, Wendy and her brothers begin to lose their memories, so she sends a message to Peter Pan for help. Peter Pan is sort of tied up at the moment, so he sends Jake and the Never Land Pirates to save the day!

Treasure Of The Pirate Mummy's Tomb/Mystery Of The Missing Treasure! - Jake his pals must find the Never Land ankh that is located inside the Mummy's Tomb. Then Jake and his crew are on the hunt to find the thief that stole their Team Treasure Chest.

Pirate Genie Tales - Pip the Pirate Genie tells Jake and the pirates his tales from traveling around Never World.

Captain Gizmo/Jake's Pirate Swap Meet - Jake and his crew build a mechanical Captain Gizmo. Then Jake swaps Cubby's first map with Captain Hook's map.

Sleeping Mermaid/Jake's Mega-Mecha Sword - Jake and his crew must team-up with Captain Hook to help Queen Coralie, who has been put under a sleeping curse. Then Jake and his pals try to locate the Mega-Mecha Sword before Captain Hook gets his hand on it.

I have to admit that I have never watched any programs on Disney Junior, despite the fact that I do get the channel. I have seen the original Peter Pan animated classic and the sequel Return to Never Land. That being said, I thought I would give Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle For The Book a try and I'm glad that I did as the cartoon series is fun to watch. The Battle For The Book episodes brings back the Darling children and mixes in Jake and the Pirates. It is a fun double-length episode. The other four episodes, featuring 7 adventures, are fun to watch too. Overall, Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle For The Book is an entertaining delight to watch that the entire family will enjoy.
