Iris There are no native Americans in this book. There are Native Neverland-ers though...

Laura It is an odd little book. I preferred the Peter Pan story that tells how he fell out of his pram, and how he that was where the other lost boys came from.

Cymia Moss I've never read the Peter Pan book or the sequel books. But you did clarify what I already did know. When you analyse Peter Pan in the book you easily enough see the darker and more vain side to the character himself that Hollywood, Disney, and countless other adaptations refuse to let lose. He's got the childhood lack of understanding of right and wrong and thinks everything is a game. I think that's why I like Broms book The Child Thief it takes the darkside that many people don't know of Peter Pan and taking him and the other characters from the original story and twist them even further.

Caio Brown I agree with you, I knew the story but I loved it even more after reading the book.

ijeoma Agbaje I've always felt Peter Pan is way more insidious than his character is made out to be.
Safe to say as amazing as this book is (and i totally loved it) it destroyed all my PG illusions of his character.
