J. M. Barrie
This was an interesting book, full of adventure but also has a more serious side about the need to grow up and grow in wisdom. It makes us realize the consequences of our actions and also the importance of family and friends.
The questions it left unanswered for me were:
-What school is it that Hook went to? What is known for its slouch and walk?
-The question of fairies that are unsure of their sex? Androgynous like angels?
-Forget fairies and you kill them the power of naming or unnaming
A great read for children of all ages, and if you like Peter Pan then check out Capt. Hook by J.V. Hart for an introduction to Hook as a young man.
