Meer as ’n honderd jaar nadat die boek Peter and Wendy deur J.M. Barrie in Engeland gepubliseer is, verskyn Marié Heese se opvolgstorie Peter Pan en Laurie by Protea Boekhuis in Suid-Afrika. Dit word gelyktydig in Engels en Afrikaans vrygestel, met sjarmante illustrasies deur Marjorie van Heerden. Marié Heese het reeds verskeie kinderstories gepubliseer en vertaal.

Sy nuwe feetjie-maat heet Klokkelokkies. Daar is ander Verlore Seuns, en ander vyande om te trotseer, veral die groteske reus, Half-gevreet, leier van die Grillergaaie, wat net ’n halwe kop het en die ore van sy oorwonne vyande pekel, aan ’n tou om sy nek hang en kou. Hy soek Peter se ore vir sy versameling. En daar is dinosaurusse wat die eiland wil oorneem …
