Happy Book Birthday to FOREVER NEVERLAND!!

Happy Book Birthday to FOREVER NEVERLAND by Susan Adrian!! This amazing middle grade novel has been called “A fresh and worthy Neverland update for today’s young readers” by Booklist, and “A magical ode to childhood that updates the classic while keeping its flavor” by Kirkus Reviews!

Clover and Fergus are the great-great-grandchildren of Wendy Darling (yes, that Wendy). And now Peter Pan wants to take them to Neverland for the adventure of their lives! But Clover is a little nervous–she’s supposed to look after her brother. Fergus is autistic, and not everyone makes him feel welcome. What will happen to him in this magical world?

Fergus isn’t nervous at all. To him, Neverland seems like a dream come true! He’s tired of Clover’s constant mothering and wants some independence, like Peter and the Lost Boys have. He wonders, Why can’t the real world be more like Neverland?

Neverland is fun and free, but it’s also dangerous and even scary at times. Unfamiliar creatures lurk in the shadows, and strange sounds come from the waters. And then the mermaids start to go missing. . . .

In an imaginative and thoughtful continuation of the story of Peter Pan, Susan Adrian explores Neverland with a fresh perspective and indelible warmth, offering a new adventure based on a beloved classic!

Please join me in congratulating Susan on her book’s release, which is available from Random House Children’s Books today at bookstores everywhere!!
