Book Summary:

The acclaimed artist Brom brilliantly displays his multiple extraordinary talents in The Child Thief—a spellbinding re-imagining of the beloved Peter Pan story that carries readers through the perilous mist separating our world from the realm of Faerie. As Gregory Maguire did with his New York Times bestselling Wicked novels, Brom takes a classic children’s tale and turns it inside-out, painting a Neverland that, like Maguire’s Oz, is darker, richer, more complex than innocent world J.M. Barrie originally conceived. An ingeniously executed literary feat, illustrated with Brom’s sumptuous artwork, The Child Thief is contemporary fantasy at its finest—casting Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, even Captain Hook and his crew in a breathtaking new light.

Book Summary:

What does Avalon have to do with Neverland? Why are the children the only humans who can use Avalon’s magic? What are the differences between J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and Brom’s Child Thief? Brom wrote a haunting reimagination of a book that is still one of the most important for children. Yet, The Child Thief is not a book designed for children. There is a great difference between the flying boy in Barrie’s original and Brom’s Peter. This poses the question, which traits of the original Peter Pan did Brom use as they were and which ones did he give a twist? Every change that Brom made has implications that go beyond a simple adaption to our modern taste. Since The Child Thief also does not follow Barrie’s Peter Pan concerning the storyline or the narrative style, the formerly posed question encompasses therefore the whole The Child Thief. This treatise aims to answer these questions and to give an outlook on possible further research.

Book Summary:

In the tradition of City of Thieves and Child 44, a troubled First World War veteran races across the frozen steppe of 1930s Ukraine to save a child from a shadowy killer with unthinkable plans Luka is a war veteran who now wants only to have a quiet life with his family. His village has, so far, remained hidden from the advancing Soviet brutality. But everything changes the day the stranger arrives, pulling a sled bearing a terrible cargo. When the villagers’ fear turns deadly, they think they have saved themselves. But their anger has cursed them: in the chaos, a little girl has vanished. Luka is the only man with the skills to find out who could have stolen a child in these frozen lands—and besides, the missing girl is best friend to Luka’s daughter. He swears he will find her. Together with his sons, Luka sets out in pursuit across lands ravaged by war and gripped by treachery. Soon they realize that the man they are tracking is no ordinary criminal, but a skillful hunter with the child as the bait in his twisted game. It will take all of Luka’s strength to battle the harshest of conditions, and all of his wit to stay a step ahead of Soviet authorities. And though his toughest enemy is the man he tracks, his strongest bond is a promise to his family back home.
