Synopses & Reviews
A stunning edition of J.M. Barrie's classic tale, illustrated by two-time Kate Greenaway Medalist, Michael Foreman. Ever since Peter Pan first flew through Wendy's window, taking her and her two brothers off to Neverland, J.M. Barrie's enchanting fantasy has thrilled and delighted children. Here are all the elements that appeal to the imaginations of young readers--high adventure, children who can fly, pirates who need defeating, and fairies with magical powers. From Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys to the ominously ticking crocodile and the devilish Captain Hook, unforgettable characters burst from every page. In this edition, Michael Foreman's gorgeous illustrations breathe new life into this timeless tale.
Acclaimed illustrator Robert Ingpen takes readers on a magical, unforgettable trip to Neverland in this sumptuous edition of the classic story, complete with a foreword by the great-great grand nephew of J.M. Barrie himself.
Like Peter Pan himself, Barrie's timeless tale never grows old, although it has captivated children of all ages for a century. Robert Ingpen's illustrations capture once more the fantastic adventures of Peter Pan and Wendy, the Lost Boys, Tinkerbell, and the wicked Captain Hook.
This handsome volume is sure to find a treasured place in any home or library.
