LoveReading View on Peter Pan

Classic-looking gift edition of a classic children’s adventure

J.M. Barrie’s timeless tale of Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up never gets old itself. While this dazzlingly imaginative story may have been written in another age, the story itself is ageless, and can be enjoyed by all ages too. Children and adults alike will get caught up in the adventure, the magic, and its big themes, among them the value of imagination, the value of courage versus cowardice, and the eternal, universal conflict between wanting to be a child, but having to grow up. 


What’s more, this Wordsworth Collector’s Edition - an elegant hardback, with gold foiled frontage, gorgeous cover artwork, and soft-focus line drawings peppered throughout - will make the ideal gift for readers who’ve yet to discover its unique delights. 

The Wordsworth Collector's Editions make wonderful presents for children; you can find more in the series here.

Peter Pan Synopsis

The magical Peter Pan comes to the night nursery of the Darling children, Wendy, John and Michael. He teaches them to fly, then takes them through the sky to Never-Never Land, where they find Red Indians, Wolves, Mermaids and... Pirates. The leader of the pirates is the sinister Captain Hook. His hand was bitten off by a crocodile, who, as Captain Hook explains 'liked me arm so much that he has followed me ever since, licking his lips for the rest of me'. After lots of adventures, the story reaches its exciting climax as Peter, Wendy and the children do battle with Captain Hook and his band.

Peter Pan Press Reviews

Intensely moving as well as enchanting in its evocation of childhood, the heartlessness of youth and parental grief as children grow older. - Daily Telegraph
