Generations of readers have traveled to Neverland and all the secret places of a child's heart. A story rich in adventure, humor, and sadness, J.M. Barrie's masterpiece remains a stirring call to flights of imagination.
With a magic and emotional appeal unmatched by any other story, Barries Peter Pan speaks directly to childhoods dreams and desires with an imaginative genius that evokes both laughter and tears. Peter, the boy would wouldnt grow up; Nana, the Darling childrens nurse and pet Newfoundland; deliciously dreadful Captain Hook, who is stalked by a crocodile with a clock in his stomach; and Tinker Bell, quite a common fairy, who swears like a sailor and is murderously jealousthese characters of startling originality are rich, funny, mischievously insightful, and a joy to read about again and again. The result is a masterpiece of literature that has been working its timeless wonderment on us since it first appeared.
