Pan: The Untold Stories of Neverland by K. R. Thompson is the first book in the Neverland series; the back stories of the characters that make up the magical stories that we all know. In this introductory story we learn the history of the boy who became Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys. Told with equal measures of humor, pathos, and fantasy, we get to know Peter, a boy desperately seeking the life he once knew, and the beginning of a magical relationship that has entertained generations of those of those of us who still believe in ‘magic.’
This is a fairy tale that will appeal to readers of all ages.
I did accidentally buy the second one, Hook, which I probably wouldn't have bought on purpose, but I'm rather pleased with it. I just started it and I'm enjoying it far more than Pan -- probably because I'm personally more interested in character when I've never really liked Peter Pan.
Pan will tell you a tale of how Peter Pan came to be. This magical novella is sure to enchant you. Thompson has created an imaginative faerie tale of the beginning of Peter Pan and what we know as Neverland.
The Plot: Neverland and its pixies are dying. Brave little Tink decides it is time to find someone to come to Neverland who will believe in the magic that keeps them alive. She comes across Peter and promises him he will always be a boy and she will always be by his side. Together they will find more lost boys to journey to Neverland to believe.
This was a cute little novella. It is the beginning of entire series of “Untold Stories of Neverland” including a story about Hook and about a mermaid. I applaud Thompson’s effort for creating these prequels to the classic tale of Peter Pan. This novella was magical and imaginative and I cannot wait to continue the series.
Peter Pan is such a classic story. I remember when I was little I would watch the Peter Pan featuring Mary Martin as Peter Pan. “I’m flying (flying, flying, flying!!) Look at me way up high, Suddenly here am I, I’m flying.” Admit it you were singing along and probably smiling.
Peter Pan is one of those stories that just sticks with you and you will always remember. K.R. Thompson tells us how each of the characters became who they are. As the title tells you, we learn about Peter Pan and how he came to Neverland. Peter’s journey to Neverland is not full of roses either. We also learn a little about the Lost Boys as well.
Pan is only about 70 pages, once you start reading you really get sucked into the story and it just flies by. The writing is very solid and there is no point in the story where I felt like it dragged.
As any good writer does, Thompson leaves you wanting more. In fact, make sure you have Hook (The Untold Stories of Neverland Book 2) handy. I promise you will want to start it as soon as you finish Pan.
Pan sets up a great foundation for what I believe will be a very good and entertaining series. I believe any fan of Peter Pan will want to have this story in their collection.
