Hook's Daughter is an extraordinarly fun and swashbuckling adventure. Not a contemporary retelling of Peter Pan but a delightful mix of Neverland and Malory Towers with a twist in the tail. 12 year old Jocelyn, who just happens to be Captain Hook's daughter has been despatched to a school to learn to become more ladylike. But Jocelyn has other ideas like playing tricks on teachers and pupils and escaping from time to time. On hearing of her father's death she decides to go to Neverland to kill the crocodile or that's what she has planned. But of course she hasn't bargained on the boy who never grew up, Peter Pan...

A Piece of Passion from Publisher, Barry Cunningham "It’s always the villains we remember best – they have the most colourful lives, the best lines and our sneaking respect. But what about their families? What’s that story? Well, you have to wait no longer; here’s Heidi Schulz’s brilliant new hook to the tale of Peter Pan and Neverland with lots of familiar friends and enemies! And a certain captain’s daughter, of course..."

Synopsis

Hook's Daughter by Heidi Schulz

It's not easy being the daughter of Captain Hook. Twelve-year-old Jocelyn dreams of following in his footsteps but her grandfather sends her to finishing school instead. When her father meets his unfortunate end, Jocelyn sails to Neverland to avenge his death. But she hadn't bargained on ticking crocodiles, lazy pirates and a troublemaking boy called Peter Pan.

Reviews

a captivating mixture of fearsome pirates, a courageous and adventurous female lead character, and a sarcastic yet charming narrator. In other words, this book is absolutely fantastic!’ HUFFINGTON POST (USA)

About the Author

Heidi Schulz

Heidi Schulz is a bit of a riddle, even to herself.

Her high-school career aptitude test suggested she would be an excellent air-traffic controller, possibly because she is always thinking of a million things at once. She enjoys cooking but hates having to cook.

She loves spreadsheets almost as much as she loves creating new worlds on paper, is suspicious of giraffes and despairs of ever being normal.
