Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up–Revisit Neverland in this new adaptation of Peter Pan. Told from the point of view of Tinkerbell, listeners live the story of Tiger Lily, daughter of cross-dressing shaman Tik Tok, and her role as wild girl in Neverland. When her arranged marriage to Giant looms closer, Tiger Lily defies her elders and discovers the burrow where Peter Pan and the Lost Boys live. As Tiger Lily spends more time with Peter than with her tribe, she begins to lose sight of a major dilemma facing her village: Englishman Philip forcing his beliefs on the “savages.” While the main focus of the story is the budding romance between the wild girl and the boy who never grew up, all the familiar characters from Neverland are given a new twist: Smee is more feared than Hook, Tinkerbell is not attached to Peter, and the boys are more like teenagers. Expertly narrated by Cassandra Morris, Tink's voice is captured effortlessly as she follows Tiger Lily around Neverland. Note that there are drinking references an dmild innuendos. Fans of the original Peter Pan (Barrie, 1911) and the acclaimed “Peter and the Star Catchers” series (Barry/Pearson 2006) will fall in love with Tiger Lily.–Amanda Schiavulli Finger Lakes Library System, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

Review

“Funny, free, and utterly imaginative, Jodi Lynn Anderson’s writing is packed with loveliness.” (Ann Brashares, national bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants on Peaches)

“Guided by fragile, insect–size faerie Tink, readers are drawn into this richly re–imagined Neverland. Working with the darker threads of Barrie’s bittersweet classic, Anderson weaves an enchanting tale.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“The mythology of Neverland is eloquently woven into the story, and characters are reborn in fascinating ways…[and] Readers will find it hard to resist being drawn into Tiger Lily’s world, where dangers and emotions are painted several shades darker than in J.M. Barrie’s classic fantasy.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Its many layers create a place of dangerous wonder. Tiger Lily has been reinvented with a complex backstory, giving her a credible source of deep strength and dark emotion.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Serious and moving.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review))

“This unique retelling of PETER PAN by J. M. Barrie has a literary feel, lush descriptions, and a mysterious but sympathetic main character…A sophisticated fantasy, a new spin on a classic tale.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“In expressive, graceful language, Anderson tells the story of the fierce Tiger Lily and her thorny romance with the legendary Peter Pan. Its sensitive, passionate portrayal of familiar characters…is captivating.” (Booklist)

“With this quiet and bittersweet story, readers will never again think of Peter Pan as simple animation.” (BookPage)

There are lot of fairy tale and story retellings now.
Shala Kerrigan
Tiger Lily is the main character, but Peter Pan and Tinker Bell are very important--the story is told by Tinker Bell.
K. Davis
If you expect to hear a story told from Tinkerbell, I think you are going to like this book much more.

Originally, I fell in love with this book because of its gorgeous orange cover. Then, I read the blurb and I was super excited to read a re-telling of Peter Pan from the point of view of one of my favorite Disney characters, Tinkerbell. It turns out that Tinkerbell was the reason for much of my frustration over this beautiful story. I started this book in July, but annoyed by Tinkerbell's disinterest in the main characters early on in the book, I stopped reading 38 pages into the story.

A couple of days ago, I took the book back off my shelf and gave it a second chance. It turns out that Tinkerbell was a fantastic choice for a narrator. She could give input on a multitude of characters, since she was so small and mostly ignored. Since she wasn't able to speak, she couldn't spoil the fun "surprises" the the readers knew awaited the other characters.

Tiger Lily has a unique personality that may be hard to connect to. She's quiet, boyish, and rebellious. She doesn't know how to express her feelings to anyone, including the dashing Peter Pan. I really empathized with Tiger Lily and I was sad to say goodbye to her when the book was finished. I truly wished that more characters acted like her - a shy tomboy - because I know quite a few in real life.

Peter Pan reminded me slightly of Lestat in Anne Rice's vampire series. He did what he wanted to do without caring about the consequences. He didn't understand why Tiger Lily made choices with her head and not her heart.

The contrast between these two characters made some very tension filled scenes. It was heartbreaking to witness their interactions. As a reader, I knew what should be said and what should happen, but it never unfolded that way.

This book was incredibly emotional and mournful. Even with the warning at the beginning of this story, I couldn't have imagined just how deep it would affect me.
I honestly didn't know what to expect. A retelling of Peter Pan? That just seemed so far-fetched since I'd heard it was an emotional rollercoaster. I should not have doubted it. Tiger Lily surpassed all expectations and honestly, made my eyes wet. Tiger Lily has always been one of my favorite Disney princesses since she was loyal, brave, and strong, but sadly was overlooked and only had one line that barely lasted 2 seconds. Her character traits were highlighted in this amazing book, making me love her even more. Tiger lily has been betrayed, hurt, lost, and was an outcast. That is, until she meets Peter Pan and falls in love with him and he with her. It was a beautiful, subtle, love story, but it was that subtle part that ripped it all apart.
Let me just say this now: I hated Wendy. She seemed shallow and uncaring, pretty much your average bitc*. I absolutely hated her with all my heart and wanted to tear out her pretty little hair just so Peter Pan would love Tiger Lily again. Sadly, I couldn't and just had to keep reading, learning how things would play out, and leaving me heartbroken with tears in my eyes. Never has a Disney movie been so emotional, so sad, and so, so beautiful.
This story is told in Tinker Bell's, that's right Tinker Bell's, point of view and that made this all the more worthwhile to read. This way, you can catch a glimpse what others are thinking, imagining, and you never have to second guess what a character is feeling. I almost felt like I was in the book, Tiger Lily, Peter, Hook, and Tik Tok in front of me. The writing was lyrical, the plot shocking, and the mood/tone sorrowful, mournful, despairing.

First Impressions: I have an embarrassing confession to make right now. I have an extremely strange obsession with Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. I collect all of the editions I can get my hands on of the book, I've watched all of the movies, I've seen the play dozens of times in different venues, and I've written a parade of papers in college analyzing different aspect of the original version. Like I said, I'm strangely obsessed. So when I found out that Jodi Lynn Anderson, one of my favorite authors, had written a book about Tiger Lily, I needed to get it! I didn't even have to read the synopsis to know that I wanted to review this book (but I did, and afterwards, I wanted this book even more). Now, I have a second confession to make. I'm not a huge fan of Wendy! I've always preferred Tinkerbell and Tiger Lily over Wendy. I could spend all day explaining why, but I'm not going to bore you to death. I however feel inclined to let you know that this review might be a bit biased, just because of how much I love anything to do with Peter Pan. It's very hard for me not to like, on the exception of Disney's version of Peter Pan, which I find incredibly racist and ignorant since I'm Native American. Anyway, back to the book.

First 50 Pages: The first 50 pages of this book kind of put me in shock. Okay, I'm being dramatic, but the beginning was surprising. Just by judging what the book synopsis had told me, I thought that this book would be told from the point of view of Tiger Lily. It's not. It is told from Tinkerbell's point of view and how she views everything that is going on around her, but mostly it's about Tinkerbell's observations revolving around Peter and Tiger Lily.
