While maintaining the feel, that old-world British setting, it’s a bit darker than the Disney cartoon, (which I bet is closer to the original).
The author, Peter David, was able to take the story and make it his own. There are pirates, mermaids, Indians, as well as a Tiger. I also really enjoyed his narrative, that occasionally ‘broke the 4th wall’, by speaking to the reader. This book I highly recommend, especially for those who sometimes feel like being an adult isn’t that great.
