Launch Party: Forever Neverland

BSBPL Children’s library is honor to have author Susan Adrian return to the library for the launch of her new children’s book, Forever Neverland.  We had so much fun at the launch of her last book, Nutcracked that we wanted to do it again.  So join us on Tuesday, June 25th at 6:00pm for this fun filled launch party! About Forever Neverland: What if Peter Pan wanted to take you to Neverland? Would you go? A contemporary sequel to J. M. Barrie’s timeless classic Peter Pan, perfect for kids who loved THE LAND OF STORIES and dream of going to Neverland. 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.

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...
