The Complete Peter Pan
By J.M. Barrie
Illustrated by Joel Stewart
Age range: 9–11
The boy who wouldn’t grow up, Peter Pan has the power of flight and lives on a magical island. But he is fascinated by Mary Darling’s bedtime stories for her children and makes covert night-time visits to their Bloomsbury home. One evening he loses his shadow, and after Mary’s daughter Wendy helps him reattach it, he invites her to fly away with him on an extraordinary adventure.
In addition to the famous 1911 novel Peter and Wendy, which tells the familiar adventures of Peter Pan in Neverland and popularized the characters of Tinkerbell and Captain Hook, this volume contains the celebrated stage version on which Peter and Wendy is based, as well as Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, in which Peter Pan is a seven-day-old infant who consorts with birds and fairies and travels down the Serpentine in a thrush’s nest.
