In the century since its debut in London, Peter Pan has come to be regarded as the most classic piece of children's literature of all time. It is the story of the three Darling children's encounter with an ageless boy who teaches them to fly and takes them to the magical island of Neverland inhabited by fairies, lost boys, Red Indians, mermaids, a hungry crocodile--and a band of pirates led by the villainous Captain Hook. It is an endearing story of wonder, magic and all the enchantments of childhood that manifest themselves in the world of a boy who refuses to grow up.

Even if you've never read the book, you're probably familiar with the story: the flying boy from Neverland who refuses to grow up, the saucy little pixie named Tinkerbell, Wendy taking care of the Lost Boys, the villainous Captain Hook and his ticking crocodile, etc. If you've never had the pleas...

Despite the reference to "rich, detailed illustrations" in the description, there is not one illustration in this edition. A disappointment for a young reader.

I had a really great time reading this book. The Peter Pan movie is one of my favorite movies and reading this book stirred up a lot of memories from the movie. It was kind of diving back into my childhood. And I am seriously in love with Peter Pan.
Basically the only reason that this didn't get 5 stars from me is because of the ending. I won't say what happened, but it is different from the movie and it completely broke my heart.

My favorite childhood story. Still just as captivating, if not more.

Personally, I liked the book a whole lot more than the movie, because the book reminded us that children will be children, and sometimes they're a little heartless, because they don't know any better.

Always good to read when you get to feeling too "grown up"

"Based upon Sir James M. Barrie's 1904 play about the boy who refuses to grow up, the film begins in the London nursery of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, where three children are visited by Peter Pan. With the help of his tiny friend, the fairy Tinkerbell, Peter takes the three children on a magical flight to Never Land. This enchanted island is home to Peter, Tink, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and her Native American nation, and the scheming Captain Hook who is as intent on defeating Peter Pan as he is from escaping the tick-tocking crocodile that once ate a hand of his that Peter Pan cut off--and loved the taste of so much. " David Mullich

When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.

Never say goodbye, because goddbye means going away, and going away means forgetting.

All children, except one, grow up.

"So Pan," said Hook at last, "this is all your doing."

"Aye, James Hook," came the stern answer. "it is all my doing."

"Proud and insolent youth," said Hook, "prepare to meet thy doom."
"
Old and sinister man," Peter answered have at thee."
