Peter Pan is a fantasy of extraordinary imagination, and a national treasure. It has everything: airborne children, mocking mermaids, bloodthirsty pirates, a homicidal crocodile with a nasty tick. In this novelisation of the original play, J. M. Barrie brings the cast and the action of the drama brilliantly to life on the page. We travel to the surreal world of Neverland, and meet the true characters of the story, as Barrie created them: Wendy Darling and Captain Hook, Tinker Bell and Tiger Lily, and above all, the enchanting, boastful boy who refuses to grow up.
Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, also included in this edition, is the touching, comical fairy tale in which J. M. Barrie introduced the infant Peter, and the first adventures of his perpetual life.
