The Lovereading4Kids comment
Mabel Lucie Attwell was one of the best-loved children’s illustrators of the last century and J. M. Barrie himself requested that she illustrate Peter Pan. For many adults her versions of Peter, Wendy, Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys will be the most familiar, remembered from their own childhoods, and her illustrations catch both the cosy safety of the nursery, and the dreamy magic of Neverland. Colour plates and line drawings are both full of life and expression and she gives Peter and Wendy a clear childlike innocence . This handsome edition will make a lovely Christmas gift. ~ Andrea Reece
Both this edition of Peter Pan and Wendy and Alice in Wonderland are introduced by Webster Wickham, great-grandson of Mabel Lucie Attwell.

J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan is a thrilling adventure for all ages - the story of the boy who refuses to grow up is a tale that never gets old. It follows the Darling children, Wendy, John and Michael, who befriend the magical Peter and are whisked away to Neverland, where the villainous Captain Hook and the brave Lost Boys await.
