Book review: Peter Pan

Peter Pan, the book based on J.M. Barrie’s famous play, is filled with unforgettable characters: Peter Pan, the boy who would not grow up; the fairy, Tinker Bell; the evil pirate, Captain Hook; and the three children–Wendy, John, and Michael–who fly off with Peter Pan to Neverland, where they meet Indians and pirates and a crocodile that ticks. Renowned children’s-book artist Michael Hague has brought the amazing adventures of Peter Pan to life. His beautiful illustrations capture the wild, seductive power of this classic book. This newly designed edition will be enjoyed by fans young and old alike.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can see why this is a children’s classic. I have always loved the legend and myth of Peter Pan. I have seen the movie and i was delighted to read it for the book riot and the popsugar challenge. It made me nostalgic for my childhood. It perfectly captured the innocence that children have and Peter’s eternal youth and what consequences come from never growing up as others around you grow up.
