Overview

'All children, except one, grow up.' Mrs Darling half-remembers Peter Pan from her own childhood; he is an insubstantial figure with a baby's laugh and a habit of blowing out stars. She believes him to be imaginary – until he leaves his shadow in her children's nursery. Accompanied by a foul-mouthed fairy, Peter is in search of good stories, and upon learning that the eldest Darling girl, Wendy, knows a great many, he lures her and her two brothers back to the island of Neverland. There, the dreams and imaginings of childhood become real. Lost boys, pirates and warring Indians populate the shifting landscape, which suddenly seems darker and more frightening without the bedside lamps of home. Adapted by J. M. Barrie (1860–1937) from his most famous play, this novelised and illustrated version of the story was first published in 1911.

    Great read

    What an amazing book. The writing style is impressive, it is easy to understand but nit the kind if easy that makes you set it down to pick up another book. This book is great for reading to a child or reading for pure enjoyment.

    Childhood revisited

    I loved this story when I was a child but only had the Disney version. I now read this with a child's eyes and enjoy the story so much more. A great classic!

    Significant formatting problems

    I LOVE this story but I am unimpressed by this particular ebook version. The OCR has left all kinds of weird characters and spacing and the headers/footers from the pages have been left in to disrupt paragraphs. All this would be more forgivable if Amazon wasn't offering a free edition that has been cleaned up and looks great.
