Peter Pan

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
By: (1860-1937)

In both the play and the novel, Peter often visits the “real world” of London to listen in on bedtime stories told by Mary Darling to her children. One night, Peter is spotted, and while trying to escape, he loses his shadow. On returning to claim his shadow, he wakes Mary’s daughter, Wendy Darling. When Wendy succeeds in re-attaching his shadow to him, Peter takes a fancy to her and invites her to Neverland to be a mother to his gang of Lost Boys, the children who are lost in Kensington Gardens. Wendy agrees, and her brothers John and Michael go along. The dangerous and magical flight to Neverland is followed by many adventures. The children are blown out of air by a cannon and Wendy is nearly killed. Peter and the Lost Boys build a little house for Wendy to live in while she recuperates. Soon John and Michael adopt the ways of the Lost Boys, while Wendy plays house in mothering them, all the while invoking the jealousy of Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and the mermaids. Peter is often oblivious, concentrating on real and make-believe adventures and on taunting the pirate Captain Hook. Later follows adventures at Mermaids’ Lagoon, the near deaths of Tinker Bell and Peter; a violent pirate/Indian massacre, and a climactic confrontation with Peter’s nemesis, the pirate Captain Hook of the pirate ship the Jolly Roger.

They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, "Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!" This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up... Continue reading book >>

I love Peter Pan. I have the movie and the book. I think this ebook was really good. Some of the readers were really good and others did just ok.

I like the book but yet again with the different readers, but they should have the ch.07 reader or the ch.10 reader but the ch.11 reader was too funny :D

Unfortunately, I echo the others. a different reader per chapter was very distracting to me. Some did well; others were quite poor.

First time we listened to the "real" story. It was nice to hear something different than Disney or from the Catherine Rigsby stage play. However, we had a hard time with the different readers. Some of the readers were great, but there were three that I REALLY did not like. I would not have listened to the book had I realized they were going to read a chapter. The book and story itself is fine.

This is a great book it is full of complete imagination. I think this book is for children my age and many other ages so if this book was rated by ten I would personally say ten out of ten.

I did not like the different readers. The first male reader sounded too robotic.
