  • David Harrell - The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook
  • David Harrell - The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook


David Harrell always wanted to be a part of playground games, but was only included when the other kids recognized that his prosthetic hook made him perfect for the part of Captain Hook in Peter Pan. Through perseverance, he showed he could be more than just the boy with one hand. David demonstrates that by not judging a book by its cover, everybody grows. This moving and humorous look at growing up without a right hand serves as an excellent vehicle for character development.
