When Peter Pan flies through the Darling's nursery window, Wendy, Michael and John begin their amazing adventures to Never Never Land, where they meet unforgettable characters like the Lost Boys, Tinkerbell and the cruel Captain Hook. J.M. Barrie's enchanting story of the boy who wouldn't grow up has thrilled generations of young readers. Peter Pan and Wendy contains all the elements which appeal to the imaginations of young readers - high adventure, children who can fly, pirates who need defeating, and fairies with magical powers.
J.M. Barrie had no children of his own but was the guardian of five boys for whom he created the tale of Peter Pan, first written as a play. He generously donated the royalties of his classic book to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in 1929. This edition will maintain a royalty to the hospital.
