The letters PZ show that the boat is registered in Penzance
in Cornwall.

P is also for Peter Pan


I found this old book when I was sorting out Mums attic.


The photo of the title page is a little dark but I

hope you can make out the line drawing.

Hey there!
If you like Peter Pan, you might be interested to know about a new novel.
Unlike ALL the other prequels and sequels that have come out, this one does not contradict Barrie's stories. In fact, it's based on his idea to continue Pan's adventure.

Believe!

Have you ever seen 'Finding Neverland' about J.M Barrie?- if you haven't, I insist that you must, Suburbia!

One day I hope to visit Penzance Cornwall...I love Rosemude Pilcher's books, esp. Shell Seekers, about Cornwall, etc...it sounds soooo beautiful! Love the boat pic - maybe because my dad is a fisherman!! Who is Mrs. Nesbit? I'd like to visit the site!
