Peter Pan is a character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie. A mischievous boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Native Americans, fairies, pirates, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside of Neverland. In addition to two distinct works by Barrie, the character has been featured in a variety of media and merchandise, both adapting and expanding on Barrie's works.
A number of classic children's books return in milestone and reissued editions for a new generation. J.M. Barrie's enchanting Peter Pan: 100th Anniversary Edition features a large trim for reading aloud and rich, detailed illustrations by Michael Hague (which he originally published in 1987). Peter Pan's flyaway red hair and tattered garment of "skeleton leaves and the juices that ooze out of trees" capture the free spirit of the boy who refused to grow up.

I forgot the beauty of classics
In 4th grade I read Dave Barrie(strange resembles with the names) and Ridley Pearson's Starcatchers series(great read four and a half stars!). About a week ago I saw the SyFy channel's Neverland miniseries(my fav movies) So I wanted to read the original Peter Pan...and wow. Its amazing. From modern day versions and the Disney movie it doesnt even seem like the same story as the original. If you think you know Peter but you havent read the original you are wrong. So read the original! I fell in love with the original Peter Pan.
I loved it I watched all the versions of the movies of him but I never read the book and now that I have it brings back so many memories of when I was little the best I've ever read <3
It was fantastic, to say the least. It is so much more than a children's story, it really is a very good book and has a very satisfying and heartwarming ending. All around a very good book and I'm glad I read it!
