9781627300438: The Adventures of Peter Pan
Présentation de l'éditeur :

“Any writer who can create a figure as fascinating and enduring as Peter Pan will always seem to some to have supernatural powers…” — The New York Times

“Peter Pan allows us to think that we can make the impossible possible. I recommend Peter Pan by JM Barrie because every now and again we need to step into the land of make believe.” — Avil Beckford - The Invisible Mentor

"I absolutely loved this book! J. M. Barrie has created a load of funny and unique characters.” — The Atlantic Monthly

Journey with Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, and the Darling children to the magical island of Neverland.

“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.”

Revisit enchanted Neverland with J. M. Barrie's timeless tale. Join Wendy, John, and Michael Darling as they follow Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up, to a world where fairies live and children can fly. But beware -- danger abounds in this magical land of mermaids, Indians, and fairy dust. Captain Hook and his pirate crew want all children to walk the plank, especially Peter Pan. There is always an adventure to be had in Neverland. So come along with the Darling children as they soar into the night sky -- second to the right and straight on till morning! Peter Pan first flew across a London stage in 1904, overwhelming audiences with its tale of a magical boy who never grows up, who lures young Wendy and her brothers to Neverland where they meet pirates, Indians, fairies, and the Lost Boys. Following the play’s astonishing success, J. M. Barrie revised and expanded the story and published it as this novel, originally titled Peter and Wendy when it appeared in 1911. For children, it remains a marvelous mix of fantasy and adventure, featuring unique, imaginative characters, who frisk and frolic in an enchanting land. For adults, the story of Peter and the Lost Boys works on a much deeper level, speaking to them about the inevitable loss of childhood and the ability “to fly.” The climactic duel between the “proud and insolent youth” (Peter Pan) and the “dark and sinister man” (Captain Hook) is both a swashbuckling romp and a moving metaphor for the complex, poignant struggle between innocent but irresponsible youth and tainted but dependable maturity. Neither side wins, for the one inevitably becomes the other. Of course, the ageless Peter Pan is the happy exception.
