Peter Pan and Wendy
J. M. Barrie
Children’s

Despite your familiarity with the outline of the tale, a reading of the novel Peter Pan and Wendy is likely to astonish you with its sophistication, allusiveness, and compelling, yet paradoxically reflective, storytelling. For all its fantasy and adventure, the book is very much written from an adult perspective: It is, in a way, a long meditation on the inevitability of leaving the magical precincts of childhood. Uniquely targeted, with perfect aim, at both kids and adults, Barrie’s masterpiece is the perfect vehicle to introduce a family to the pleasures of reading long tales aloud, for it allows each audience to lose itself in its own transporting reverie.
