What does Avalon have to do with Neverland? Why are the children the only humans who can use Avalon’s magic? What are the differences between J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and Brom’s Child Thief? Brom wrote a haunting reimagination of a book that is still one of the most important for children. Yet, The Child Thief is not a book designed for children. There is a great difference between the flying boy in Barrie’s original and Brom’s Peter. This poses the question, which traits of the original Peter Pan did Brom use as they were and which ones did he give a twist? Every change that Brom made has implications that go beyond a simple adaption to our modern taste. Since The Child Thief also does not follow Barrie’s Peter Pan concerning the storyline or the narrative style, the formerly posed question encompasses therefore the whole The Child Thief.
This treatise aims to answer these questions and to give an outlook on possible further research.
