Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available again, this popular edition of Peter Pan includes the complete and unabridged text accompanied by fifty full-color paintings by Scott Gustafson. Kirkus Reviews wrote "Gustafson's lusty oil paintings of the pirates are akin to N.C. Wyeth's...[he] is a talented craftsman who skillfully melds his references to past greats to create an appropriately traditional style that has enough of a contemporary aura for broad popular appeal." Children and parents will feel like they're in Neverland, too, with this definitive edition of Barrie's timeless classic.

Synopsis:

In this handsome edition of one of the best-loved children's stories, Gustafson's lavishly detailed paintings send readers right into the magical world of Neverland. All the unforgettable adventures of Peter Pan are captured in more than 50 illustrations, each as captivating as Barrie's timeless text. Full color throughout.

Roberta Taylor, April 5, 2007 (view all comments by Roberta Taylor)
Scott Gustafson has done a magnificent job of illustrating this wonderful story. There are just enough images to keep a child's interest as you read outloud to them- our favourites include the tipsy fairy walking over Peter and the gorgeous double-page spread of Peter coming over the rails of Hook's ship, mischief in his eyes and a knife in his teeth. Gustafson captures the mix of innocence and knowing which makes this one of our family's favourite stories perfectly in his warm paintings.
(ps- if you don't have a child to read this outloud to, borrow one. really.)
