    What Child Is This?Why it is Peter – the Forever A Boy the Only Child Nature’s heir – the son of Pan ‘Tis Peter Pan He shall fly and swim hither and thither capturing other Only Children children like himself He has learned his lesson well it shall only be Only Children this time Under the sea they shall be brought to romp and to play and to have adventures – to do the opposite of what they should Peter will make them like himself Peter the leader O cunning and heartless Peter Pan What Adventure Is This?This adventure is a seuel Or perhaps a preuel? It matters not The adventures go round and round – and round again And who is that lurking? ‘Tis Captain Hook The timeless villain returns Peter “hates” him – he loves to hate him He loves him It is said that the apple does not fall far from the tree Peter collects his own apples luring them from the luxury liners above to their fate down below These Only Children shall live in a sunken schooner a brotherhood with two sisters all of them perched atop a volcano busy with play until the end of the day until bedtime – until two hours after bedtime And then to snuggle together in their hammocks the next day a new adventure the world of parents and schoolyard bullies and lonely sibling less lives left far behind Children forever What Author Is This?Who is this tricky man this Gilbert Adair? Who dares to write a seuel – or a preuel – to a timeless children’s classic? Why he is a Literary Author But never fear children – he does not come to condescend He comes to romp and to play and to invent new adventures His tongue may be planted firmly in cheek but his heart is not a cynical one He creates an adventure and he amuses himself in his own way as well he amuses himself while playing right beside the children He gives a weak chinned character a strong chin – and refuses to take it back He gives a goldfish a home at the bottom of the sea He makes a suit of a crocodile skin He makes Peter Pan a terrible being a child who laughingly toys with lives and carelessly throws a friend aside – but he keeps Peter Pan delightful as well A delightful little hero villain A delightful little book
