There are few characters in literature more iconic than J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Originally introduced in 1902 in another Barrie novel (The Little White Bird), Peter's story was expanded as a standalone novel in 1911 and since then has been memorably adapted for the movies, for television, and for stage.
Now, actress Lily Collins (The Blind Side, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) brings new, youthful energy to Peter's magical adventures.

Fly away with Peter Pan to the enchanted island of Neverland! This first chapter book adaptation of the classic novel, originally published in 1911, tells the story of the boy who never grows up.

"This may not be the story you think you remember"
J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan has enchanted audiences for well over a century with its celebration of the promise of an eternal childhood, as well as recognition of the wonder and joys of growing up. In his charming and resonant baritone, Alan Munro performs the timeless tale of Wendy Darling's experience with "the beautiful boy with a beautiful smile", the devil-may-care Peter Pan.
When Peter Pan appears in Wendy, John, and Michael's nursery one night looking for his lost shadow, he tells them of a magical place: Neverland - a land of fairies, mermaids, and pirates, where nobody ever grows up. Wendy has always wanted to see a mermaid, so this gives Peter a marvelous idea. Wendy can come back to Neverland to help take care of him and the lost boys. Just a few happy thoughts, a sprinkling of fairy dust, and away they go.
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.

"Great abridged telling"
When Peter Pan and his fairy companion, Tinker Bell, fly in through the window of Wendy's nursery one night, it is the beginning of an adventure that whisks Wendy and her brothers, Michael and John, off to Neverland. There, they will find mermaids, fairies, pirates led by the sinister Captain Hook, and the crocodile who bit off his leg - and still pursues him in hope of the rest!
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.
