You Can Fly: A Sequel to the Peter Pan Tales (Paperback)
Thomas Pandora is the son of Peter Pan and Wendy, but Thomas doesn't know it. They've hidden it from him, wisely or not, to protect him, and they plan to hide it from him all their lives. On the eve of Thomas Pandora's thirteenth birthday, he's visited by a mysterious fairy named Tink who tells him that Hook is back, and without Peter Pan there to protect Never Never Land, Hook will soon have it conquered and despoiled. He, Thomas Pandora, is the only one who can save them.
Chuck Rosenthal is the author of ten novels, two books of narrative essays, a memoir and, with Gail Wronsky, two books of collaborative poetry. He lives with her and their animals in Topanga Canyon, California.
“Dispatching Peter (who grows up, changes his name, marries, and becomes a California yoga instructor) from the narrative by transforming him into an overprotective grown-up incapable of comprehending his angst-ridden son is as disrespectful a bit of storytelling as it is disingenuous.” —— Kirkus Reviews
