Pan (The Untold Stories of Neverland) by K.R. Thompson
“Magic can only exist when someone believes…” (Thompson, p. 8).
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.
