All children grow up, all except one.The magical story of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, has captivated generations of children. Rose Impey's sensitive adaptation of the story makes it accessible to younger children, while retaining the spirit of the original J. M. Barrie text. Ian Beck's enchanting illustrations superbly bring to life this much-loved fantasy - a valuable addition to every child's bookshelf and a perfect companion to the forthcoming film Pan.
