Show Synopsis

'All children, except one, grow up.' It was Friday night. Mr and Mrs Darling were dining out. Nana had been tied up in the backyard. The poor dog was barking, for she could smell danger. And she was right - this was the night that Peter Pan would take the Darling children on the most breath-taking adventure of their lives, to a place called Neverland, a strange country where the lost boys live and never grow up, a land with mermaids, fairies and pirates - and of course the terrible, evil, Captain Hook.

Peter Pan is a charming classic that will capture the hearts of all readers. J.M. Barrie possesses a wonderful wittiness seen particularly in his descriptions of the Darling?s home life. He also exhibits a poignant insight into the troubles and desires of children, illustrated by the sometimes dark but always attractive Peter Pan. Through the marvelous story with all its fantastic adventures runs a reflection on growing up ~ that there are joys found in it as well as in being young.

The Atheneum edition illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman captures this tale with beautiful illustrations.

A Book Every Child Should Read

I have often said that there are three books every child should read. One of these is J.M. Berrie's, Peter Pan. In addition, I have never seen a lovelier version than the one illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman, which I bought for myself on Alibris.com.
The book, Peter Pan, follows the magical adventures of the Darling children, Wendy, Michael, and John. The Darling children are quite normal children who play at make believe during the day and dream of make believe during the night but after they meet Peter Pan, the living incarnation of the Neverland, all of their wildest pretends come true. Wendy intrigues Peter, leader of the lost boys of Neverland, so he steals her and her two brothers away to live with him in his mysterious world of daydreams and nightmares. The reader witnesses their breathtaking adventures until the story winds around to bring the children home once again to their distraught parents.
I believe that this book is enchanting and worthwhile to believers and skeptics of all ages. It offers a uniquely knowing and respectful view of the youthful imagination, which not only tends to encourage the use of it, but also provide fuel to fan it into flame. In this world devoid of books and individual make believe, where children no longer believe in fairies, Peter Pan is a light among literature.
