LoveReading View on Peter Pan (with an introduction by Tony Diterlizzi)

The magical idea of never growing up lies at the heart of the story of Peter Pan. When Peter Pan flies in at the bed room window of the three Darling children one starry night he leads them off flying over rooftops and, to the cry “Second to the right and straight on till morning”, off to Neverland. Here they meet the Lost Boys, the mermaids, the cheeky Tinkerball and, above all, the deadly captain Hook and his pirates. Adventure follows adventure before the three darling children are returned safely home and back to bed. But they never forget Peter Pan and nor will readers who will also love the magic he leads them to. This edition comes with a superb introduction by Tony Diterlizzi who tells us how he came to love this story and why it remains such a timeless children and adults' classic today. In this terrific pocket size Puffin edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who plus many activities beyond the book.
