PETER AND ALICE
7F, 7M, 3 either
A teenaged poet causes a rift in the literary space-time continuum, causing an unsuspecting Alice Lidell to wash up on the shores of Neverland. When Alice matures by way of a magic mushroom, Peter Pan is enticed and Wendy is jealous. As Wendy and Alice vie for Peter’s affection, one-handed Tango master Captain Hook captures Tiger Lily, a Native girl who proves that first impressions can be deceiving. A diligent librarian endeavors to separate Peter and Alice, but their stories are growing more tangled by the minute. Stir in some lost boys, a white rabbit, a naughty fairy, and a few swords, and you may find yourself in hot pot of flying pepper soup. Who gets Peter? Who wins the swordfight? And is anyone going to grow up already?
