David Harrell: The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook

An Arts for Learning Connecticut Artist

In a moving and humorous look at growing up, David Harrell brings to life a story of his childhood in "The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook". Born without his right hand and fitted with a prosthetic hook before he starts school, he is kept on the sidelines of recess until the game becomes Peter Pan! He fits perfectly into the game as Captain Hook but soon grows tired of playing the part and decides he wants to be a hero. Through his journey David and his friends learn the importance of accepting and including others that may not look exactly the way that we do.
