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.

I've always been a big fan of Peter Pan, and this reading was just marvelous! I enjoyed every second of it.

What made the experience of listening to Howl's Moving Castle the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The performance in my mind was just the perfect performance for the type of book this is. I have always enjoyed reading this book, and had lost it during a move last year, and I'm so glad that audible has it and it was just awesome to listen to it. It reminded me how much I just loved this story!
