J.M. Barrie's fantasy adventure with pirates, mermaids, and fairies, brought to life in a new book-plus-audio edition.

Peter Pan refuses to grow up. Instead he spends his never-ending childhood making mischief and seeking out adventure as leader of the Lost Boys on the small island of Neverland. His only cares in the world are stopping the pirates, led by the dangerous Captain Hook, from hurting any of his friends. Occasionally he even gets to see kids from the ordinary world, but he has never brought one back.

Until he meets Wendy Darling...

Peter Pan is engagingly read by film and television actor Samuel West, with music and effects to set the mood.
