Overview

J.M Barrie's classic tale of Peter Pan and Wendy and the lost boys of Neverland. Beautifully illustrated.

"All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, 'Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!' This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end."

The tale of Peter Pan may be the greatest children's tale ever, appealing to children of all ages. Peter Pan and Wendy is the book J. M. Barrie wrote based upon his successful play. It portrays the boundlessness of imagination, childrens' struggles with adults over independence and identity, and the inevitable loss of innocence as one grows up. The volume I purchased for my 2-year old daughter has beautiful illustrations throughout and is printed on thick paper, to help perserve it through (I'm sure) many readings. The only problems I had with the story was probably due to its age: the author's early-20th-Century English prose is a little thick for young minds, and of course some of the comments about the tribe of Redskins may be viewed as derogatory. Still, I recommend this book for those with children, or those of us who never really grew up.

Peter Pan is a book I'm sure you've all heard of-- or at least you've heard of the movie. But the book is a whole second realm of wonders and oddities. I highly recommend trying it out. PS (and it's free).

Confusing at first, but, after a few pages, it is really fun and engaging. But, there are HORRIBLE typos. And also very confusing and strangly placed headlined. But other then that it is a very charming classic. Try it.

I had to do this dumb Disney Junior version. They sang horrible songs and I did pretty much nothing. I was JOHN. Disney added in all of those stupid fairies like Iredessa and Silvermist, and the fairies are the ones who defeat Hook's pirates. The Lost Boys did nothing but get captured, and Tiger Lily and Wendy did a tap dance duet. Peter Pan couldn't sing. This book is amazing compared to the torture I went through. So why do you haters hate this bok when you could of been ripped off by buying a ticket to my play? So this book gets 100000000000000000000000^999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 stars.

We've all heard of the popular Disney "Peter Pan" but have you considered reading the book? "Peter Pan and Wendy" was written by J.M Barrie back in 1911.This book tells the story of the little boy Peter who didn't want to grow up and the adventures he experienced in  Neverland with Wendy and her brothers, the lost boys, and you can't forget, Tinkerbell! Barrie puts a greater perspective on all the characters introduced in the book and what it's really like to be in the little island of Neverland. You are put into Peter's shoes when you read this book and you can see a much more deeper side to his personality than you may have thought. As a reader, you feel  like you are in Neverland itself because of the amazing detailed imagery. J.M Barrie makes children's imaginations seem realistic  allowing you to open up to your inner self and feel like a little kid again. The only thing I did not like about this book was the authors old fashioned diction. Since the book was written in 1911, the word choice is very old making it hard to understand for younger minds.  If you're up for an amazing journey through Neverland and can deal with old English then I would definitely recommend this book. J.M Barrie is a great author who really know how to make you nostalgic.
