Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“By far the most charming and clever reimagining of the Boy Who Never Grew Up story that I have ever encountered. Readers of all ages, prepare yourselves for a very big adventure.” Terry Brooks, New York Times bestselling author
“Peter David sees the world a bit differently from everyone else–strangely, wonderfully, stunningly differently. Reading Tigerheart gave me the feeling of walking a comfortably familiar road, but seeing things from angles I never knew existed. A beautiful, delightful story.” R. A. Salvatore, New York Times bestselling author 
“Not certain the world needs another version of Peter Pan? It doesn’t matter. Simon Vance’s narration makes this an outstanding listening experience. He is utterly charming and obviously having great fun. Whether voicing ‘The Boy,’ a sensible young lady, a pirate, a talking tiger, or an Indian brave, Vance makes the listener believe in the character—which is an especially good thing for the pixies, who need belief to survive!” AudioFile
“With its infusion of originality, David’s admirable pastiche of James Barrie’s Peter Pan will have readers of all ages clamoring for a copy…David provides everything readers could possibly desire: suspense, swashbuckling adventure, tenderness, anguish, a dash of wit and sarcasm, and a perfect ending.” School Library Journal
“For those who know and love the original Peter Pan material, Tigerheart should be welcomed as a respectful yet innovative amplification of the legend…Simon Vance puts his vocal storytelling skills to good use in the audio rendering…Tigerheart would make for good family listening…and might foster some interesting discussion.” SFsite.com
