Barrie works an indisputable magic on listeners of all ages in this classic tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up. As a baby, Peter Pan fell out of his carriage and was taken by fairies to Neverland. There, he can fly and is the champion of the Lost Boys and a friend to the fairy Tinker Bell. Revisiting England, Peter becomes involved with Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, all of whom accompany Peter to Neverland. The children have many adventures and vanquish the pirate Captain Hook. The Darlings eventually return home with the Lost Boys, leaving Peter Pan to his perpetual boyhood.

Since Peter Pan first appeared as a play in 1904, the boy hero has achieved mythological status in the English-speaking world. The story’s emotional truths about youth, freedom, and responsibility continue to touch the heart and thrill the imagination.

    " Beautiful story. Surprisingly adult at times, especially those fairies! If you can get an illustrated edition, it's worth it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisa | 2/6/2014

    " Charming, enchanting, sweet, break-your-heart sad, and surprisingly deep. I was also surprised by Peter's tyrannical character! And what a little b*tch Tinker Bell is (but still very lovely). This is a story which should be read to every child on the planet. Absolutely better than all its adaptations though they did their part in enhancing my reading of this classic. Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 1/14/2014

    " Peter is a bit of a pompous, naughty little boy but (somehow) still entirely lovable. Peter Pan (the book) was surprisingly charming and a fun book to read. Fantasy and adventure, ahoy! Also, this book was beautifully written. I recommend that everyone checks out this book at least once. "

    " I had seen the Disney movie more times than I can count, as well as the movie Hook, but I had never actually read the book. The book is marvelous! It is different from the movies in so many wonderful ways. It is worth reading and I will definitely read it to my children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mailis | 5/19/2011

    " I think Peter Pan holds the title for being my first crush i had on an imaginary character...its the main problem with girls isn't it, to love someone who is aloof and unreachable, but makes life unpredictable and fun... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 5/12/2011

    " So this was good book. A little on the strange side at times but I was actually pretty surprised how close some adaptations have been. I think it address some interesting ideas about growing up and losing the innocence of youth. I think its worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katelyn | 5/12/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iben "Noia" | 5/9/2011

    " Definitely worth reading and thus knowing the original, but I much prefer the Disney versions. It's a fairly random read at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 5/7/2011

    " If I could give half stars, I'd rate this one 4.5. I had never read this before and really liked it--very different from Disney, though I suppose there is no surprise there. The story is about children but adult in its themes and psychology. Both adults and children in our household enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 5/7/2011

    " Read this when I was alot younger. It does follow the movie better than I thought. Minus all the killing. Very exciting to think that Peter might be watching you when you tell stories to children. I think from now on I will leave the window cracked just a little so he can hear. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 5/7/2011

    " This is a book every child should read. "
