Chris MacCool, an imaginative UPS worker from Louisville, Kentucky, has completed his new book “Pan and Hook: The Untold Story”: a spellbinding retelling of a children’s classic.

Author MacCool writes about the core inspiration of the story: “'Sometimes enemies begin as friends.'
This is a story about Peter Pan, but it is not the story most people know. The original story of Peter Pan begins in Neverland, when Peter and Captain Hook were enemies. This story begins much earlier, when Peter and Hook were both boys and actually friends. Read on to discover how they meet, become friends, and then sadly become separated.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Chris MacCool’s new book is an engaging fantasy that packs in a whole new world of possibility and nuance, taking J. M. Barrie’s beloved children’s classic to a deeper layer by delving into the what-ifs of the characters’ magical past. Readers of all ages who remain young at heart will delight in MacCool’s inventive portrayal of a beautiful, somewhat tragic world of hidden magic long before Peter Pan was Peter Pan.

Readers who wish to experience this charming work can purchase “Pan and Hook: The Untold Story” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
