Peter Panby J. M. Barrie
Synopses & Reviews
Welcome to Neverland!
For three lucky children living in London, nothing could seem better than a faraway world where you were free to play all day. In this magical world, there would be no school. And no parents to tell you to brush your teeth. Or to sit up straight, or to eat your vegetables. Best of all, in this make-believe world no one would ever grow up.
Children would remain children forever.
As Wendy, John, and Michael and are about to discover, this faraway land is not so very far away after all. In fact, it is but a short dream away. On a world within a cloud called Neverland. It truly is a dream come true!
But no dream lasts forever.
Every child has to grow up eventually. Unless, of course, that child is named Peter Pan.
Generations of readers have traveled to Neverland and all the secret places of a child's heart. With characters of startling originality and a story rich in adventure, humor, and sadness, J.M. Barrie's masterpiece remains a stirring call to flights of imagination.
Beloved by generations, this world-famous story of the boy who could not grow up is now adapted as a major motion picture from Universal Pictures, scheduled for nationwide release on Christmas Day, 2003. Reissue.
