"This may not be the story you think you remember"
Peter Pan is an endearing and powerful tale of a very special journey of three 'everyday' children to a land of fantasy. Small listeners will easily identify themselves with the heroes of this magical tale. They will experience the meaning of true friendship and the bitter taste of disappointment, and they will take to heart the timeless struggle between the desire for adventure and the longing for a warm, peaceful and loving family home.
Peter Pan, the mischievous imp who refuses to grow up, lands in the Darling's proper middle-class home to look for his shadow. He befriends Wendy, John, and Michael and teaches them to fly (with a little help from fairy dust). He and Tinker Bell whisk them off to Neverland where they encounter the Red Indians, the Little Lost Boys, pirates, and the dastardly Captain Hook.
"Not the Peter Pan You Know"
J.M. Barrie's classic tale, completely unabridged, features a boy who refuses to grow up, Tinker Bell the fairy, and the Darling children: Wendy, John, and Michael. Their great adventure begins on the night that Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow and teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to Neverland, where adventures happen every day.

James Matthew Barrie’s Peter Pan was first performed as a play in 1904, and has since become one of the most widely performed and adapted children’s stories in the world. It is considered by many to be the only children’s play that is also a great work of literature. Peter Pan’s success is due in part to a fresh means of storytelling that appeals to both adults and children. While children enjoy the imaginative story and flights of fancy, adults can relate to Peter Pan’s desire to forego mature responsibilities and live in the moment.
In theater, the actors who play Peter Pan are young, sprightly, and almost always female. So you can imagine the surprise of actress and sometimes-detective Jocelyn "Josh" O’Roarke when middle-aged director Rich Rafelson decides to step into the harness of the boy who never wanted to grow up for a regional production of Peter Pan. Even more surprising is Rich’s sudden death, caused by a fall from the stage during an ill-advised curtain call.
The story of Peter Pan is all that you imagine it will be - and so much more. While narrating this delightful audiobook, I was struck by both how similar it is to the beloved stage musical (I've always wanted to play Peter, and this was my chance! - well, without the flying) and also by how much deeper the narrative goes - if you wish it to. It made me think about the joys and losses of growing up, the darker side of children ("gay and innocent and heartless"), the power and depth of parental love, and the secret kisses we all keep inside that only someone special can unlock.
Some will wait a lifetime to take their revenge.... A vicious robbery at a secluded Brighton mansion leaves its elderly occupant dying. And millions of pounds' worth of valuables have been taken.
