Publisher Description

DK Audio presents the beautifully adapted and sound designed audiobook of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Originally introduced in 1902 in another Barrie novel, The Little White Bird, Peter's story was expanded as a standalone novel in 1911 and since then has been memorably adapted for the movies, for television, and for the stage. The story's emotional truths about youth, freedom, and responsibility continue to touch the heart and thrill the imagination. Barrie works an indisputable magic on listeners of all ages in this classic tale. Peter grows up in Neverland, along with the Lost Boys and the fairy Tinker Bell, after falling out of his pram. Years later, Peter visits England where he meets Wendy, John and Michael Darling, all of whom accompany Peter to Neverland. There they have many adventures, meeting mermaids and fighting pirates, most notably, Captain Hook. Brought to life by British actress, writer, comedian and presenter, Dawn French, who is best known for starring in and writing for the BBC comedy sketch show French and Saunders with comedy partner Jennifer Saunders and for playing the lead role as Geraldine Granger in the BBC sitcom The Vicar of Dibley. © 1911; 2000 J M Barrie; Michael Johnstone © 2000 DK Audio

About J. M. Barrie

James Matthew Barrie (1860–1937) was born in Scotland, the son of a weaver and the ninth of ten children. His mother saw to it that he was educated, despite the family’s low income. He studied at the University of Edinburgh and spent two years on the Nottingham Journal before settling in London as a freelance writer in 1885. His short stories, essays, and novels were well received, and he began to gain a fine reputation as a playwright. His most enduring work is Peter Pan, which is based on stories he made up for children in his neighborhood.
