Considered a masterpiece since its first appearance on stage in 1904,Peter Panis J. M. Barrie's most famous work and arguably the greatest of all children's stories. While it is a wonderful fantasy for the young,Peter Pan,particularly in the novel form Barrie published in 1911, says something important to all of us. Here ""the boy who wouldn't grow up"" and his adventures with Wendy and the lost boys in the Neverland evoke a deep emotional response as they give form to our feelings about parents, boys and girls, the unknown, freedom, and responsibility. Humorous, satiric, filled with suspenseful cliff-hangers and bittersweet truths,Peter Panworks an indisputable magic on readers of all ages, making it a true classic of imaginative literature. From the Paperback edition.
A number of classic children's books return in milestone and reissued editions for a new generation. J.M. Barrie's enchanting Peter Pan: 100th Anniversary Edition features a large trim for reading aloud and rich, detailed illustrations by Michael Hague (which he originally published in 1987). Peter Pan's flyaway red hair and tattered garment of "skeleton leaves and the juices that ooze out of trees" capture the free spirit of the boy who refused to grow up. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
