Overview




Neverland is home to Peter Pan, a young boy who has never grown up. On one of his visits to London, Peter makes the acquaintance of young Wendy Darling, whom he invites to travel with him to Neverland and become the mother of his gang of Lost Boys. Flying through the night sky to Neverland, Wendy and her brothers John and Michael soon become caught up in marvelous adventures with the Indian Princess Tiger Lily, the loyal fairy Tinker Bell, and Peter's nemesis, the sinister hook-handed pirate known as Captain Hook.
 
Spun by J.M. Barrie from his immensely popular stage play of the same name, Peter Pan is a timeless classic of children's literature. Illustrated with plates by F.D. Bedford, this exquisite full-color edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a ribbon bookmark, distinctive gilded edging, and decorative endpapers. It's a book that will be cherished by readers of all ages.

This book was just okay. In other words, I could have lived my whole life without reading it and been okay. Not saying this it was a bad book but it wasn't all the great either. I don't understand why people are saying that it's so heartbreaking, cause it's not. I only gave it 4 stars because of all that and this... Peter Pan is not a great or bad character; meaning I didn't love him nor did I hate him. He was just a little boy that I found fun and always up for adventures but I also thought he was knida annoying at the same time. In the way that he couldn't remember anything i.e. his past adventures, the childrens names, etc. Also I kinda disliked how he would always say "Oh, the cleverness of me!" even though he wasn't the one to do anything. Wendy for her part was an okay person, I hated that it was her job to do everything for them, tuck them in, clean and fix their clothes. I've always kinda disliked TinkerBell so it's no surpirse I didn't like her here either, she was a rude little thing weather she was in love with Peter or not. The Lost Boys were okay too, as well as John and Michael. I had no problems with them. Hook and the pirates were a fun bunch cause they are the kinda pirates I like, very much like the bad guys in Pirates of the Caribbean movies. That's how I picture pirates when reading about them, lots of tattoos, dirty, evil, scary names etc. They added a lot to the story for me, if it wasn't for the whole Hook vs Peter thing I would have stopped reading about halfway through. Maybe I just have the Disney verison in my head but I liked that alot better then the book, and I never really liked the Disney Peter Pan growing up. I don't know maybe I'm just not one for books about Kids who don't care about anyone but themself. Though i know that a lot of kids are like that but not all. Not a book I will be reading again but it's a nice Edition to add to the many others like it that I got the day I got this book.

The book is durable and attractively made. The book looked the same when I finished reading it as it had when I first purchased it. The story itself is powerful and frightening and wonderful--from crude Tinker Bell to immature Peter to responsible, longing Wendy. The tale is definitely one for readers of all ages. I had no issues with the condition of the book itself or the bookmark, which is still intact with no signs of coming loose. The color is a bit more on the green side, though, than what is shown in the picture. I like the actual cover color better.

This is one of many Leatherbound Classics that I have purchased and it like the others does not disappoint. Beautiful leather cover makes this classic tale even more appealing.
