Mabel Lucie Attwell's Peter Pan and Wendy Review

Classic Fiction Fantasy / Magical Featured Books for 7+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers Recommended Children's eBooks

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.

Both this edition of Peter Pan and Wendy and Alice in Wonderland are introduced by Webster Wickham, great-grandson of Mabel Lucie Attwell.
