  1. Be aware: Peter Pan in Scarlet, though “official” has many mistakes in it from J.M. Barrie’s original stories. Pretty sad.

    Check out this one, instead. And it has a strong female characters, too!

    BELIEVE!

  2. Thank you for your comment -the first on Maclic blog :). I will get a copy of Peter Pan’s NeverWorld, by Peter Von Brown.

    It is also the occasion to get back to the basics and read the original Peter Pan as the Disney version might well be all what children know.

    And maybe discuss them in our book club…

  3. That sounds great! Kind of a Book Club “Theme” 🙂
    I think you’ll find that the original story by J.M. Barrie is much deeper, darker and bittersweet than you remember/imagine.

    Happy reading! 😀
