Her many awards include the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award for her services to children's literature.Review:
"With evident delight, Shirley Hughes has reillustrated Peter Pan and Wendy. With her dark-haired Wendy, elfin, androgynous Peter and menacing Hook, Hughes reminds us how much black and white drawings can enhance a story." —Sunday Times
"Shirley Hughes' black pen and ink illustrations take us back to the story's Edwardian origins while the conversational, personal narrative makes this a perfect family book to read aloud over the holidays." —Cork Evening Echo
