All children have a Neverland when they’re young. Peter Pan ran away to live in his.
J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan first captured audiences on the stage in 1904. Barrie then rewrote the play into a children’s novel titled Peter and Wendy in 1911. This is that story, beautifully redesigned to once again bring the magical land of Neverland to life and to tell of the bold adventures of the boy Peter.
Wendy Darling loves her life in the nursery with her brothers, Michael and John, and their nurse, a Newfoundland dog named Nana. And then there is Peter. Every child knows Peter. Of course they do. He lives with the fairies, pirates, and Indians on his island of Neverland, where no one ever grows up.
One night he comes to the Darlings’ nursery with the irresistible offer to take Wendy, Michael, and John away with him. To get to Neverland, Peter will teach them to fly. What adventure-loving child could resist?
