All children except one grow up! Maybe there are a few more, for those who read this book will inevitably not want to grow up”
Peter Pan flies into Wendy’s bedroom window in a house in London and with John and Michael, they fly away to Never Land.
Peter is the leader of the Lost Boys and meets his nemesis Captain Hook. From there along with Fairy Tinkerbell, the story and adventure begin.
J.M. Barrie left his royalties in perpetuity to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and this magnificent edition was published to commemorate the centenary of first publication and to continue as a fundraiser.
Robert Ingpen, is from Australia and first attempted illustrating Peter Pan at 7 years old. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with membership of the Order of Australia.
A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world.
This book is part of a wonderful series of Classic Children’s Literature from Palazzo and will provide hours of pleasure.
