Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
"I believe," says Paul Dear, a young and clever boy. His father tells him tall tales and stories, while his mother fills them with common sense. At night, a young boy appears in his mirror and makes him believe in the Anyplace even more. His mother comes home with a darling little baby girl that is his new sister. When she loses the baby she becomes extremely irritable and does not accept any sort of "I believe" from anyone. Paul Dear travels with a pixie to the Anyplace where he is trying to find a new baby for his mother. Along the way he deals with a deadly pirate's shadow, huge tidal waves, friendship with a tiger, and growing up. Can Paul find a baby to make his mother happy? Can he survive the sometimes nasty Anyplace?

Peter David did a great job remaking Peter Pan. However, Tigerheart is more about Paul than Peter. I really liked the unique differences between the original and this new version because it made me think about growing up in a different way. One thing that I especially liked was that Peter David talked to you as a reader. I particlarly enjoyed when what he was saying was closely relevant to the story or humorous. Other times he was only saying about how he WASN'T going to tell the reader anything special and took up an entire page. Something else that was a little disappointing was that the actual title of the book wasn't important until more than halfway through, and even then it wasn't as special as it should have been. The vocabulary was appropriate for a young adult level, although the story could actually be fit for anyone to read. I recommend this to anyone who loved Peter Pan and to anyone that loves fairy tales, no matter what their age.
