Secondly, I’m going to eat a little crow here. I’ve gone on record before disparaging the whole Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trend in fantasy literature. However, it turns out some of those books have gotten really good reviews. I think I may be a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to the classics. So, to turn over a new leaf, I’d like to point your attention to the review Rebecca did of Peter and the Starcatchers, a prequel to the classic Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. While she had some disparaging words for the effort, it got me to considering for which treasured child’s book would I like to have a prequel or sequel written.
I’m having a hard time deciding, and I think it’s largely because it would depend so much on the right author. Neil Gaiman would be too dark to do a sequel to Swiss Family Robinson, but I might trust him with The Secret Garden.
So, dear readers, which book’s universe would you most like to see expanded, and which author would you trust with the task? Let us know, and we’ll enter you in a drawing for the book of your choice from our stacks.
