My 8 year old loved the story -- it's a great "prequel" to Peter Pan, but just dark enough to sustain the interest all the way through the story. This is a definite "more than once" audio novel.
A major overhaul.
I felt no special attachment to any of them.
I bought this one on the strength of Jim Dale's narration. I knew it was a kid's story, but I guess i didn't know how young the target audience was. I also didn't know it was meant to be a prequel to Peter Pan, I think it could have been better. Uninspired.
I love the out doors, and I love to read a good book outside in my hammock or on the water. Listening while gardening.
For a kids book I loved it. I am near 50 years old.
I was glued to it didn't want to stop cause I wanted to see what happened next
Good clean entertainment
I loved this idea of how Peter Pan cam into existence. Yes, it is a youth book, but very well put together and well worth the listen. Jim Dale, who also reads the Harry Potter books, does an excellent job as usual.
Jim Dale does such a fantastic job narrating. Not only are his voices very distinctive, making it easy to follow which character is speaking, his sense of dramatic timing and addition of special effects noises bring the story to a whole new level.
I picked this story based on the reviews it had and was not disappointed! Learning the backstory of Peter Pan was just delightful. The story had good pace and the narrator was a perfect fit. Being an adult I sometimes crave a good read that doesn't have adult themes and this great little read really fit the bill! Give it a try, you won't be sorry. I can't wait for the next installment.
This is a great story of how Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Neverland came to be. It is narrated by Jim Dale, who is one of the best narrators in the universe!! Every time a new part of the Peter Pan story's oriigin is revealed I was amazed! It has sword fights, mermaids, pirarates, a fairy and wonderful characters who I both loved, and loved to hat! This story is for everyone.. boys, girls and adults and children alike.
I plan on reading all of the books in this series! I cannot wait to be a part of Peter and Tinkerbell's adventures in the next 3 books!! Get this book...you will be glad you did!!
I love this series. It's compelling, imaginative, the characters are well drawn. I am an adult listener but adore a good, clever story like this with plot twists and turns, humor - enjoyable for all ages! Even if you didn't love Peter Pan, it's so fun!
Great job, very easy to listen to! Love that I know which character is speaking by his voice even before he says
Loved it. It's a great beginning to the Peter Pan story. Great to finally know where he came from. The story is great, very enjoyable listen. Jim Dale is outstanding. This book is good for young and old alike.
It's a great story. Everybody know the story of Peter Pan. This let you know how it all started
Peter was thrown overboard and started to fly for the first time
Yes. He changed his voice. Some of the characters sounded alike but you could still tell who was talking by the scene.
When Peter jumped without being pushed to Mister Grin
Several parts in the book was read wrong. Example: He said King instead of Queen. He read a few chapter titles wrong. I assume that the book is different in other countries or something. I like to read the book while listening to it. But when the reading is slightly different than the book, this can throw you off.
