The Wendy Project: Buzz

Advance Praise for THE WENDY PROJECT:

“This unexpected gem stands out among latter-day versions of Peter Pan thanks to its embrace of genuine emotion and psychological gravity. Highly recommended to all graphic novel and fantasy fans, and especially to YA readers.” – SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred review)

“A perfect personification of the obscurities and realities of grief.” – Librarian at Glenlawn Collegiate

“Wonderful in every sense of the word, The Wendy Project tells a moving story about not only the loss of a family member but also the loss of innocence as children become adults.” – FOREWORD REVIEWS

“Heartbreakingly lovely modern-day take on the Peter Pan/Neverland story. I thought I’d read a little and then go to bed, but I couldn’t stop once I’d started. The illustrations perfectly captured the disconnect between real and fantasy along with the spillover.” – Redefining Perfect

Melissa Jane Osborne’s The Wendy Project is a beautiful graphic novel interpretation of Peter Pan. The story is told from the point of view of 16 year old Wendy who is behind the wheel when a car accident kills her youngest brother (Michael). The graphic novel follows Wendy’s journey of grief as she comes to terms with her brother’s death. It’s a short graphic novel, but the story is interesting, and accompanying artwork, which switches from black and white to stunning watercolor brings the story to life. This would be a great book for a child or young adult dealing with grief.” – GOODREADS

“A haunting, luminescent reinterpretation of a classic story.” – Stuart Moore, author of THE ZODIAC LEGACY

The Wendy Project is a masterpiece. Melissa Jane Osborne and Veronica Fish tell an intimate story about grief that is  both brutal and beautiful.” – David Gallaher, author of THE ONLY LIVING BOY
