R186 Discovery Miles 1 860 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

More than a hundred years after the book Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie was published in England, Mariť Heese’s sequel Peter Pan and Laurie is published by Protea Book House in South Africa, appearing simultaneously in English and Afrikaans, with charming illustrations by Marjorie van Heerden. Mariť Heese has published various other children’s stories. In this tale, she keeps reasonably close to the atmosphere and narrative style of the original work. Of course Peter is just as he has always been, adventurous and free, but the girl he brings to the Neverland with him this time is rather different from the motherly Wendy. His new fairy companion is Jingle Belle. There are other Lost Boys and other enemies to withstand, especially the grotesque giant Half-chewed, leader of the Ghastlies, who has only half a head and who pickles the ears of his vanquished foes, hanging them on a string around his neck and chewing them. He seeks Peter’s ears for his collection. And there are dinosaurs who want to take over the island
