by J.M. Barrie
In BriefJourney with the Darling Children to the Neverland, a magical island of childhood fantasies where fairies and mermaids dwell and the mythical Peter Pan never grows old. Beware, though, the island's darker side, for the fearsome Captain Hook and his motley pirate crew scheme to destroy Peter and all the children of the Neverland.
Why you should read itReaders of all ages have been drawn to the tale of Peter Pan for over a century, yet the story itself refuses to age. This classic children's book embodies any child's ideas of, and thirst for, adventure. For adults it presents a welcome respite from reality, and a poignant reminder of childhood lost.
