Overview

A coming of age tale told through the eyes of a group of French orphans during World War 2 who are saved by a brave and daring American boy named Peter. As they travel together, they get tangled up in the French Resistance in Paris, fighting a growing German presence under the leadership of a fanatical SS officer (The Hook) hell bent on wiping them out!

All the major players of the Peter Pan mythology come to new life in this action-packed second volume, with new allies in Tiger Lily, Big Chief, and the Braves. Combining forces with the French Resistance, Peter and the boys lead a deadly game of espionage to locate and free their lost brother, Felix. All that's stopping them is the combined might of the Nazi army led by a cunning and ruthless adversary, Kapitan Haken himself!

Using the Peter Pan story as a touchstone, Peter Panzerfaust reinvents familiar character and plot elements in a unique and creative way.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 09/15/2013
"To die would be an awfully big adventure," says J.M. Barrie's fantasy Peter Pan, but this Peter risks a real-world death. In Volume 1 (2012) of the series, a half dozen French orphans escape their bombed-out Calais orphanage in 1940 with the help of a daring American lad named Peter. A master strategist inspiring bravery, he leads these "lost boys" in sabotaging Nazi troops and escaping to Paris. In Volume 2, Paris is invaded, and the young men collaborate with the French Resistance to free Nazi prisoners, including one of their own. As narrated by the boys years later, the story becomes deeper as the characters mature. Wiebe (Green Wake) incorporates humor, poignancy, and tragedy into the tale but not magic. Yet the original characters slip seamlessly into real life, as if universal. Wendy and her brothers, Tiger Lily, and Captain Hook all appear, Wendy and Lily taking much more active roles than in the original. VERDICT A grim yet dashing find for adult and YA collections, this series captivates with both literary and historical hijinks. The murky art from Jenkins (Snow Angel) serves well, although the angular faces sometimes homogenize characters. Forthcoming volumes promise more adventures.—M.C.
