Written by J.M. Barrie

LoveReading View on Peter Pan and Wendy (illus Shirley Hughes)

It was with great delight that we heard that one of the country’s best known illustrators had decided to put pen to paper alongside a retold edition of Peter Pan, for a younger audience – abridged with the permission of the author.  Shirley Hughes has brought the words to life for a younger audience with the help of her stunning classic pen and ink illustrations.  This is an absolute must for any child’s bedroom bookshelf from 6 or 7 upwards to share at bedtime with parents and to read alone long into the night.
