Format: Paperback
J.M.Barrie creates a vivid world, that is appealing to anyone with a love of adventure. His playful use of language and charming wit transport you to the most fantastical fantasy world ever; Neverland, complete with Indians, mermaids and pirates. Contrasting with the real world of the Darlings, bound with the issues of society and reputation, and a belief that all children must grow up. Fans of the new peter pan movie will be further pleased with eight wonderful colour pages of photographs.
This enchanting book is sure to captivate any reader.

Format: Hardcover
A large, hardback edition of this classic story, Cooper Evans' "Peter Pan" includes the most exquisite, original illustrations, in marvellous Deco/nouveau styles. These illustrations are a selection of contemporary ones, from the original stage production flyers, to the early, classic editions of the story itself in 1911.
The book itself is a treasurable edition, itself well-produced and glossy.
In addition, the text faithfully reproduces the author's first-edition grammar, story and spellings, and splits it into the original chapters.
This books is perfect for someone who wants to give this wonderful title as a gift, to recapture the magic and avoid Disney-style illustrations. It's not a book for toddlers, however, as the story is too complex & wordy, and the book too pretty for jam fingers. Children from around 5 or 6 years of age will appreciate it, right through to adults.
One thing that this republishing of original text highlights is just how witty and sharp the writing is, and what sophisticated stories we used to share with our children.
(If you do buy it, have a look at the fabulous, glamorous, Diva-esque depiction of Tinkerbell on page 32!)

This was the first 'grown up' book with chapters I read to my 3 year old and he loved it. It's simplified without losing the magic. Good book.

My 5 year old Grandson very much enjoyed this mini classic. So much easier to read and much more entertaining for a small boy into pirates. We have now read it to him twice.A wonderful way to get children enthralled with books and into the classics.

Bought this traditional english tale for my 6 year old granddaughter. Unfortunately it is an American version with American spelling, grammar and phrases.
Not what I expected. Shall not be buying any more in this series. Customers should be advised accordingly

I always new that there are many versions to "PETER PAN " I also new that a lot of this This versions are not exactly as the original story by JM BARRIE some of them are short, some of them are pop out books , some of them are for little kids , (some of them are Disney ) exe... I also new that some of them contains wonderful illustrations inside...and some are not .
When I attended to the amazon.co.uk I was asking for PETER PAN In the original version of JM BARRIE with magical illustrations inside . I had got exactly what I wanted...and even more ..
In this book you will find the version of peter pan as it was published in 1911. You can see here the original story of the boy who never grew up with very exiting descriptions and full of imagination by JM BARRIE .
And this story is full of illustrations that where taken from a lot of early editions of PETER PAN . from the beginning of the 20 century and they are not gust magical . They are full of life . it looks like they are going to move every minute and come real. And they are all deferent . you can see there illustrations of MABEL LUCIE ATWEL ,ALICE WOODWARD , FD BADFORD and some of the illustrations were made by unknown artist .
This book is very special to me and it is a grate pleasure reading it

For those who have never read J. M. Barrie's long, quirky & involved story of a boy who can fly, loses his shadow & talks with fairies & the girl who befriends him & learns to fly too. It's all there & I was surprised at how long it is. It could take a month of daily reading to your children to finish it!
This complete & unabridged original tale of Neverland(no, it was not ever Never Never Land!) is rich in Victorian/Edwardian England's sense of humor & propriety; of starched strangers getting to know each other across social barriers; of precious parents torn with guilt & passionate dogs bereft of duty. Of cocky young boys & mean-spirited pirates; of exotic redskins & luring mermaids & that dreadful ticking crocodile! Certainly not for the politically correct!
It is also rich in an entirely new way for Raquel Jaramillo has set Barrie's story to photographs in an immediate, fantastically textured, dreamy & magical way. This illustrator has refreshed the images to this oft-abbreviated story & revived its delightful & scary philosophies.
Psychology & political correctness aside, Raquel Jaramillo has done well with this master storyteller's greatest tale. Adults & children alike will be able to identify with the whole cast & once again become immersed in the magic.
"Second to the right & then straight on until morning..." how many nights did I slip into sleep, murmuring that phrase & dreaming I was on my way to Neverland where the Lost Boys made their homes(after all, girls were much too clever ever to fall out of their prams & get lost!)
