As a child, Neverland was my ultimate vacation destination. I remember wanting to go so bad my chest actually ached from it. I dreamed of Neverland on a regular basis, and watched the Disney movie until the tape (yeah, VHS all the way) wore out and we had to buy a new one.
And Peter…Well, my childhood crush hasn’t ever really faded, from my heart or my mind.
So, here I am, all grown up with children of my own, and still I dream of Neverland. Anything to do with it, whether a movie or clever re-telling, grabs my attention.
Finding Neverland is brilliant and heartwarming, and reminds me of the power of imagination.
My absolute favorite re-telling is THE CHILD THIEF by Brom. Dark and twisted, this beautifully gruesome book is not for the faint of heart.
And I can’t wait to add this to my collection: HOOK’S REVENGE by Heidi Schulz.
One day I’ll visit Neverland, and hopefully I’ll see one or two of you while I’m there.
