Loving the Wind by Crissi Langwell

This fable is a delightful extension of the Peter Pan fantasy. I was able to easily identify with the main character, Princess Tiger Lily, mainly because of Langwell’s writing ability. Tiger Lily was in-scene throughout the novel and the author’s facility with her dialogue, both internal and external, was excellent. The plotline attempted to patch together three large themes: a modern thinking feminist princess warrior, an aboriginal native culture and Peter Pan’s world. All together in a single novel it felt a bit divisive. Regardless, It’s a flight of fancy, a creative tale that will entertain readers from middle-grade to adult.
