Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Peter of Oz (Oz-Wonderland Series Book 5) by Ron Glick.

About the Book: Peter Pan has returned to Neverland – but it is not the faery world as he remembers it. Gone are the tribesmen and beasts, and in their place are goblins, ghosts, a dragon – and a second Peter Pan! Nothing is as it was, and the Peter most recently of Oz must find a way to make a difference in this entirely new world before two warring witches can destroy Neverland!

At the same time, Toto is on a quest of his own to find a way to defeat the Cheshire Cat. The one person who knows the Cat’s secrets though might just be too mad to help at all!

With a faithful eye to the original Baum, Carroll and Barrie classics, Peter of Oz continues the latest epic in the modern Oz-Wonderland series.

My Review: I’ve been a fan of this series since the beginning, and Ron Glick’s latest book doesn’t disappoint. Like his previous volumes, this one continues the story by combining the principle characters, as well as lesser knowns, from Frank L. Baum, Lewis Carrol, and J.M. Barrie in a style that’s reminiscent of classic writing. The author brings out each character’s past, drawing on the actual stories or blending his own creation with them flawlessly.

The story remains fast paced, intriguing, and fun, but that can also be a bad thing. At least, for me, these books fly by in the blink of an eye and I want more. Each of the last three have introduced some of my favorite characters like Peter Pan and now Captain Hook. He keeps snagging me by flashing what makes them awesome in time for the next book.

Overall, if love children’s classics or even the movies, you’ll love these books. They’re a great way to escape and have loads of fun!

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
