By Barrie, J. M.Illustrated by Hyman, Trina Schart
Peter Pan is a fantasy of extraordinary imagination, and a national treasure. It has everything--airborne children, mocking mermaids, bloodthirsty pirates, and a homicidal crocodile with a nasty tick. In this novelization of the original play, J.M. Barrie brings the cast and the ...action of the drama brilliantly to life on the page. We travel to the surreal world of Neverland, and meet the true characters of the story, as Barrie created them: Wendy Darling and Captain Hook, Tinker Bell and Tiger Lily, and above all, the enchanting, boastful boy who refuses to grow up.Read more

J.M. Barrie, the son of a weaver, was born near Dundee, Scotland, in 1860. He was a journalist and novelist and began writing for the stage in 1892. Peter Pan, first produced in London on December 27, 1904, was an immediate success. The story of Peter Pan first appeared in book form (titled Peter and Wendy, and later Peter Pan and Wendy) in 1911. Barrie died in 1937, bequeathing the copyright of Peter Pan to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, a hospital for children. Trina Schart Hyman (April 8, 1939-November 19, 2004) was an American illustrator of more than 150 children's books. She won the Caldecott Medal for Saint George and the Dragon and lived in Sweden.
