The Darling children of Bloomsbury have a secret. His name is Peter Pan, a mischievous night visitor who's somewhere "betwixt and between" a boy and a bird and who refuses to grow up. When Peter invites young Wendy and her two brothers to follow him back to his Neverland home, an adventure beyond any bedtime story unfolds.
A world apart from its innumerable renditions, sequels, and spin-offs, Barrie's Peter and Wendy is a strange, beautiful, dark, and complex fantasy about the "heartless innocence" of children, the bittersweet longings of adult nostalgia, and the realities and fears of growing up.
