Synopsis: Take flight to Neverland with this sumptuously illustrated, finely crafted keepsake edition of Peter Pan’s, Wendy’s, and of course, Tinkerbell’s adventure that inspired the beloved Disney film and countless Captain Hook movies.

“All children, except one, grow up.”

And so begins the story of one of the most cherished characters in children’s literature, Peter Pan. In J.M. Barrie’s classic unabridged tale, the lives of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling change forever the night that Peter Pan and Tinkerbell the fairy fly into the Darling home looking for Peter’s shadow. Once he teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to the Neverland, imaginations and adventures unfurl.

This collectible edition includes a soft-touch cover, gold foiling, and dreamy artwork from Caldecott winner Trina Schart Hyman, whose illustrations are as mischievous, ethereal, and playful as Peter Pan himself.

Review: "All children, except one, grow up." Thus begins a great classic of children's literature that we all remember as magical. What we tend to forget, because the tale of Peter Pan and Neverland has been so relentlessly boiled down, hashed up, and coated in saccharine, is that J.M. Barrie's original version is also witty, sophisticated, and delightfully odd. The Darling children, Wendy, John, and Michael, live a very proper middle-class life in Edwardian London, but they also happen to have a Newfoundland for a nurse. The text is full of such throwaway gems as "Mrs. Darling first heard of Peter Pan when she was tidying up her children's minds," and is peppered with deliberately obscure vocabulary including "embonpoint," "quietus," and "pluperfect." Lest we forget, it was written in 1904, a relatively innocent age in which a plot about abducted children must have seemed more safely fanciful. Also, perhaps, it was an age that expected more of its children's books, for Peter Pan has a suppleness, lightness, and intelligence that are "literary" in the best sense. In a typical exchange with the dastardly Captain Hook, Peter Pan describes himself as "youth... joy... a little bird that has broken out of the egg," and the author interjects: "This, of course, was nonsense; but it was proof to the unhappy Hook that Peter did not know in the least who or what he was, which is the very pinnacle of good form." A book for adult readers-aloud to revel in--and it just might teach young listeners to fly. (Ages 5 and older) --Richard Farr
