M. Barrie (Author), Scott McKowen (Illustrator), Arthur Pober E. (Afterword) & 0 more. Peter And Wendy is the children’s book by J. M. Barrie which, along with the play, inspired the classic Walt Disney animation, Peter Pan.

M. I was motivated to read the book because Gretchen Rubin, the book author, and self-professed book lover recommended it. Disclosure, I have not yet seen the Disney film so I cannot provide much comparison with it. Also, I really enjoy historic children's literature. What I initially found fascinating about the book was it’s backstory.

Peter Pan. J. Barrie. Издание: иллюстрированное, перепечатанное. All children except one grow up. In 1904, Peter Pan first flew across a London stage and into the bedroom of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling. James Matthew Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, was born on May 9, 1860, in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland. His idyllic boyhood was shattered by his brother's death when Barrie was six. His own grief and that of his mother influenced the rest of his life. Through his work, he sought to recapture the carefree joy of his first six years.

He is Peter Pan, you know, mother. At first Mrs. Darling did not know, but after thinking back into herchildhood she just remembered a Peter Pan who was said to live with thefairies. There were odd stories about him, as that when children died hewent part of the way with them, so that they should not be frightened. She had believed in him at the time, but now that she was married andfull of sense she quite doubted whether there was any such person. He was a lovelyboy, clad in skeleton leaves and the juices that ooze out of trees butthe most entrancing thing about him was that he had all his first teeth. When he saw she was a grown-up, he gnashed the little pearls at her.

by James Matthew Barrie (Author), Scott McKowen (Illustrator), Pober Ed D, Arthur (Afterword) & 0 more. perhaps that is part of its universal appeal. And for all the fun of "Peter", he is emotionally scarred from his conviction that he was abandoned by his mother. The scenes of Wendy holding him in her lap when he has nightmares is very touching. Children love "Peter Pan" because of the adventure! The final show down between the Lost Boys/Peter Pan and the Pirates is not to be missed.

All children except one grow up. In 1904, Peter Pan first flew across a London stage and into the bedroom of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling. Ever since, this perpetual youth has continued to delight children of all ages. Young readers will happily soar with him and his friends to enchanted Neverland, where they’ll meet Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, and the “dark and sinister” Captain Hook. It’s a tale as ageless as its beloved hero.

Do not buy this copy. Note the title. Peter Pen. This is a publishing mistake being sold at market prices. I could get over this, but the type was so small with no spaces or margins, that clearly the goal was fewer pages to make more money. I was disgusted. I asked for a refund. There is no way anyone could read this along with a child. Magnifying glasses would need magnifying glasses. I ordered this for a treat. Felt totally scammed. Spare yourself. DIsgusted
no complaints re: the quality or formatting of the book at all!! (': a lovely little thing. there's books of both the novel and the play on here; this is the novel, which is what i wanted.

as for the story itself, i actually hadn't read it before or even seen the disney movie. i really love it, it's a great little fairy tale with lots of great lines and ideas (... besides the weird racist portrayal of natives; it is an old book after all.)

if you like strange and whimsical but poetic and deep children's stories you'll like it. the style and flow of writing, the way you kind of just have to go with the strange logic and old-fashioned language, reminds me a lot of the alice in wonderland books, and a bit of the little prince, both which i also really love. ♥️
First if all, Peter Pan is misspelled on the book cover. The book is very thin with TINY print, ugly font, and no spaces even between chapters. Poor paper quality and binding. Absolutely terrible publishing. The story of Peter Pan is fine of course, but don't buy this one.
This book looks as though I printed the cover from my home printer... so the quality lacks. However the text is complete and it's a great story. So if you don't judge the book by it's cover, its great.
I had never read the “real” Peter Pan book, so I decided to see how close it was to what I’d seen on TV as a child, and later in “Hook”. This was one of my most loved movies as a child. (The Mary Martin version). I also liked the Robin Williams version as an adult. The book is similar, but Tink plays a very minor, rather mean roll. There is a LOT of killing and bloodshed in the book. The children are gone to Neverland for apparently months. Peter Pan can’t seem to remember anything other than the fact that he doesn’t want to grow up. But the basics were the same. And I enjoyed it. I think when it was written kids were tougher, and were not protected from every little thing like we protect them today, mostly with good reason. Books were a main source of adventure. There’s almost too much real killing in the world today to pretend about it in a book.
These illustrated interactive editions are absolutely gorgeous. If you’re only interested in the story there are cheaper simpler versions available, but if you want a collectible, beautiful edition to cherish you can’t do much better than this. It’s so nice you will want multiple copies, one for your children and one for you. The illustrations are fantastic and the interactive elements are imaginative and whimsical... think pop-ups, maps to unfold, letters to read, hidden shadows to discover and unfurl, a “croc clock” to spin... this is a gem to add to your library.

This is a very low quality amateur edition. The few pictures are terrible looking pixelated, low resolution images blown up to page size, and the text looks like it was typeset in Microsoft Word. This was probably made by someone who bulk prints public domain texts as cheaply as possible with illustrations from Google Images to make a quick buck. I returned it immediately. There are much nicer, professionally editions available for the same price.
Great classic play that I had never read before. I had been aware that Hitchcock intended to turn this into a film, which prompted my purchase. Fits nicely with the Peter Pan world that Barrie created, though is more ominous and feels more real.
