Morgan Anne and the Pirates
Morgan Anne and the Pirates is a chapbook by Jen Pilles, Ontario, Canada. Jen continues the adventures of Barrie's characters from his kid classic Peter Pan. She writes, "This particular adventure involves Capt. Hook and his band of Pirates, as most exciting adventures do. As we all know, Captain Hook is the most Ruthless pirate Captain ever to sail the Seven seas. That isn't to say he didn't have a Ruth (which he didn't, but he many times considered getting one) but only meant that he was quite a jerk, and what he had planned for Morgan Anne was indeed jerkish." That example gives you a taste of the playful and sensuous take-your-time writing going on here. Add to this some sketchy but expressive illustrations and you've got a real treat.
