While I am greatly ecstatic to own and read such a wonderful tale, I am greatly disappointed in the book and font size. This book is far too small to add to my library. Had i known the book would be 3.5in x 6in, with a size 8 font, I would have bought a magnifying glass; or a pair of binoculars to read the book from across the room.
The gold leaf, canvas binding, cloth bookmark, and feel of the thin paper is a wonderful touch. Though small, the illustrations are delightful and greatly detailed. Too bad the details are not fully appreciable by the book size. Classics such as this should be read and admired in "grown up" size, not hobbit size.

This book, from the cover art and the general make of it to the writing style, was amazing. I do not recommend this book to those who are not at a college level of reading because the language used in it is somewhat hard to understand unless you are used to it. From beginning to end this book had me completely captivated and I read it all the way through without stopping. I've always been a fan of Peter Pan, as most people are, and having been able to add this book to my collection is wonderful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
