Classics for Your Collection:


Peter Pan is a small boy who can never grow up. Why? Maybe it's because he lives in Neverland, or maybe it's because his mother forgot him. A boy who became dead to the world he deserted. He takes the Darling children - Wendy, John, and Michael - to the Neverland, where theirs dreams all come together. They fly there using Tink's fairy dust, to the second star to the right and straight on 'til morning.

The sands of time dissolve under the feet of everyone except Peter Pan. In the end he lives on and rewards himself with lack of aging, but he forgets all and is forgotten by everyone. It is more of a magical moment that can't last. When the young die, they don't have to grow and face adulthood; they get to live with the magic of childhood forever in the memories of all who knew them when they were alive.

There are the famous faces: Captain Hook who captures them all and is always looking to gain revenge on Peter; Tinkerbell who adores Peter and is reliant on the clapping of children to survive; Tiger Lily and her deadly crew and of course the Darling family waiting patiently and desperately at home while their children undertake the adventure of a lifetime.

When you hear the name Peter Pan and Wendy, what does it remind you of? Happiness, childhood, innocence, flying away, love, and so much more right?

That's exactly what this book makes you feel. It is beautiful and magical. The writing is amazing and it is so easy to understand. It makes you feel like you are living in the book and you are either: the Lost Boys, Hook, Peter, Wendy, Smee, or Tiger Lily.

J. M. Barrie lost his brother at the age of six. From then on, he dedicated his every day to trying to make his mother laugh and filling the gap her other son left her. This incident defined Barrie's psychology and provided the very fabric he used to write Peter Pan

And Peter Pan, true to his word, never grows up. True to his character he soon forgets about Wendy, returning many years later and fixing his attentions to her daughter, and later granddaughter.


"The difference between him and the other boys at such a time was that they knew it was make-believe, while to him make-believe and true were exactly the same thing. This sometimes troubled them, as when they had to make-believe that they had had their dinners."

Notă biografică

James Matthew Barrie lived from 1860 to 1937. He was born in Scotland, the son of a weaver. He adored his mother, Margaret Ogilvie - it was the Scottish fashion in those days for wives to keep their maiden names - and, although the family were quite poor she made sure that he was educated. James moved to London in 1885 to follow a literary career. He first wrote short stories and later successful plays which made him rich and famous. He was very nervous when he gave Peter Pan to his theatrical manager because it was a child's fantasy, the first and only time he had ever written especially for children. But Peter Pan with its flying and theatrical devices was a huge success and continues to be performed today. In 1911 James Barrie turned his play into a novel, one of the most thrilling and magical of all the great adventures that have been written for children.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

For twenty-six years after his first mention of the character, J.M. Barrie worked on the story of Peter Pan as he appeared through different incarnations: the three-act play Peter Pan, or the Boy who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904), the illustrated novella Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (1906), the Epilogue to the play "An After Thought" (1908), the full-length novel Peter and Wendy (1911), two short stories, and finally a longer version of the original play. This edition of Peter Pan includes not only the novel and revised play as they were first published, but also an earlier novella and the previously unpublished original play.

Appendices include materials from Barrie's personal writings and contemporary reviews and illustrations.
