An Apple Books Classic edition.
Lose yourself in the pages of J.M. Barrie’s beloved story about Neverland, the Lost Boys, and Tinkerbell. The book begins with older sister Wendy reading to her siblings, while Peter Pan and Tink peer in through the window. But when these magical visitors are spotted, the window slams shut, trapping Peter’s shadow inside!
So begins the enchanted adventure of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, who fly through the night to Neverland-a place of fairies, magical birds, and eternal youth. But danger lurks here, too, in the form of the vengeful Captain Hook and his band of pirates. This timeless tale invites us to escape to the idyllic and fantastical realm of childhood…no matter our age.
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!
