As I was reading this book to my boys, I kept thinking how masterfully it was being told. Most children I would think have only experienced Peter Pan on DVD. What a joy to read this beautiful, engaging story to my children. If you have read "The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear", you will love the way this book has been written with the same engaging text. It took me approximately 20 minutes to read. I was not overwhelmed by the volume of text at bedtime! The pictures are on one page and a small paragraph on the facing page. The amazing animation by Mary Blair are an imagination gold mine. I wish I had read this to my kids prior to them every seeing the movie. Don't make the same mistake I have!
