J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan is the well-known tale of Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up who takes Wendy, Michael, and John to Neverland. Here the children meet The Lost Boys, the Red Indians, pirates, fairies, and mermaids.
A perfectly imaginative story, J.M. Barrie incorporates everything a child could possibly want from a book. From adventure and fighting with pirates to the magic, mystery, and excitement of fairies, mermaids and the other secrets of Neverland. The idea that Neverland is a land found in dreams also allows this book to be the perfect bedtime story, leaving children to explore their own dreamland as the fall asleep.
The copy I read of Barrie’s classic tale is the Minalima edition, which comes complete with stunning illustrations, interactive elements, and pages that fold out to reveal more.
Despite being a children’s story I greatly enjoyed reading this book as an adult. Barrie’s story explores the complexity of childhood and the struggle with growing up and the loss of imagination.
