Peter Pan and Wendy

Written by J. M. Barrie

Illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell

Part of the Macmillan Children's Books Paperback Classics Series

Peter Pan and Wendy Synopsis

This edition of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy was originally retold by May Byron for little people, with the approval of the author. It 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 the Never-Land, where the villainous Captain Hook and the brave Lost Boys await. Mabel Lucie Attwell's gentle illustrations and distinctive style have been the nursery staple of generations of children. Her illustrated edition of May Byron's abridged Peter Pan and Wendy was first published in 1921. Macmillan is proud to return Mabel Lucie Attwell's interpretation to print. With a beautiful foiled cover, this edition features black-and-white line illustrations and makes the perfect gift for children, and adults who refuse to grow up.
