Summary
The adventures of the three Darling children in Never-Never Land with Peter Pan, the boy who would not grow up. "All children, except one, grow up." And so begins the story of one of the most beloved characters in children's literature, Peter Pan. J.M. Barrie's classic tale, completely unabridged, features a boy who refuses to grow up, Tinker Bell the fairy, and the Darling children -- Wendy, John, and Michael. Their great adventure begins on the night that Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow and teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to the Neverland, where adventures happen every day

Review
  • Gr 3 – 6 — The story of Peter Pan, that little boy who just wouldn't grow up, has been a childhood staple for years. Though countless film and musical adaptations ensure that most children will be familiar with the basic story of how Peter arrives on the scene, taking Wendy, John, and Michael Darling to Neverland for adventures with mermaids, pirates, and Indians, the original story is in many ways darker and more poignant (as well as more whimsical) than many will remember. Barrie is also droll, and many adults will appreciate his piquant jabs at Edwardian society and mores, which will fly over the heads of most children. This particular edition of the classic, originally published in 1980 and now in print again, features mesmerizing, nostalgia-inducing illustrations from Caldecott winner Hyman. Black-and-white images rendered in India ink and full-color acrylic paintings depict well-known scenes—the Darling children taking flight, Peter in combat with the villainous Captain Hook—mixing in just a hint of menace (the pirates are certainly fearsome, and even Peter looks quite feral, more fairy than boy). This enchanting version soars. --Staff (Reviewed January 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 1, p61)
  • This is, perhaps, the solution of the problem of what to read to the youngsters who throng the theatres when Peter Pan is playing and who watch it on screen or TV. For Barrie's own Peter Pan and Wendy is difficult for this age group- and the Disney version leaves a lot of unfinished business. So much by way of apologia.... Now for the positive factors. As in her Josette Frank has made no bones of taking some liberties with the text, and the children who like the gory aspects of it will be disappointed. But in the main the imaginative, poetic quality is retained, and the story is still an enchanting one. I quarrel a bit with Marjorie Torrey's pictures which seem a bit sentimental and wishy washy, providing merely a palatable hors d'oeuvre to the text. All in all- while a surely popular gift book item- this should not be a substitute for the children who can read Peterson and Wendy for themselves. (Kirkus Reviews, June 15, 1957)
