this is a terrible dramatization. just terrible!

we couldn't stand to listen to it. worst dramatization I've ever heard. aside from annoying voices, the volume was impossible to keep the same. it was just all over the place.

☹️Made for TV not radio

Don’t waste your money. It’s Impossible to follow this recording of a TV program.

My kids were totally disappointed and frustrated with me after wasting the time to select and download and suffer few the first bits of this.

Barbara Morgan

Even though the story is excellent, I will not recommend this for young children because the performers use a British accent which young Americans (5-7 year olds) could not comprehend. We had to pause and translate all the to the end.

Magic: brought me back to childhood

Whimsical, magic, entertaining. Who needs a narrator? great cast and sound effects. A definite treasure to play over and over.

The best dramatisation ever made

I loved this version of Peter Pan when I was a child and was delighted to find it again. The actors are perfect for their parts, the script it fantastic (a rara avis in adaptation as it retains the pure magic of the original book), humourous, dramatic and deeply moving (impossible not to well up at Tinkerbell's devotion) I recommend it to everyone.

It was fun

I liked it...But some of the actors were anmoying. Like Peter Pan, for instance. He it nothing like I thought Peter Pan would sound like, and he was too loud, which put me off of the audiobook.
Sorry, it's just my opinion. 😩

PETER PAN PLAY

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not clear this is a play, would like money back very confusing for children to listen to at bedtime. Dissapointed

Very difficult to follow

For die-hard Peter Pan fans.

Vocalisations were fun but hard to follow - couldn’t understand a word Tinkerbell said and the background noises were very chaotic.

If you don’t know and love the story/characters you will be completely lost and put off by some of the more dated values that come through.

Entertained the children

The children enjoyed it, but I found it a little annoying and noisy as we listen to it in the car.
