Description-

  • Barrie works an indisputable magic on listeners of all ages in this classic tale of the "boy who wouldn't grow up." As a baby, Peter Pan fell out of his carriage and was taken by fairies to Neverland. There, he can fly and is the champion of the Lost Boys and a friend to the fairy Tinker Bell. Revisiting England, Peter becomes involved with Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, all of whom accompany Peter to Neverland. The children have many adventures and vanquish the pirate Captain Hook. The Darlings eventually return home with the Lost Boys, leaving Peter Pan to his perpetual boyhood.

    Since Peter Pan first appeared as a play in 1904, the boy hero has achieved mythological status in the English-speaking world. The story's emotional truths about youth, freedom, and responsibility continue to touch the heart and thrill the imagination.

About the Author-

  • James Matthew Barrie (1860–1937) was born in Scotland, the son of a weaver and the ninth of ten children. His mother saw to it that he was educated, despite the family's low income. He studied at the University of Edinburgh and spent two years on the Nottingham Journal before settling in London as a freelance writer in 1885. His short stories, essays, and novels were well received, and he began to gain a fine reputation as a playwright. His most enduring work is Peter Pan, which is based on stories he made up for children in his neighborhood.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine This unabridged reading of Barrie's tale of the Lost Boys in Never-Never Land fills in all the spaces left out by the various film and stage adaptations. The modern reader (or listener) may be more amused than shocked at incidents of brutal violence and political incorrectness alongside sensitive and sentimental observations about childhood lost. Roe Kendall's reading is filled with magic and fairy dust; her voice is soothing and silken as she relates with precision the adventures of Peter, Wendy, and the Lost Boys with pirates, Indians, and a jealous Tinker Bell.

  • AudioFile Magazine Christopher Cazenove brings the world of Peter Pan, the eternal youth, and his sidekick, Tinker Bell, to life. From the moment Peter flies in through the open nursery window, Cazenove delivers the story of Peter and the Darling children with a sense of adventure. In a distinctive British voice Cazenove gives a definitive personality to each character. As blustery Captain Hook, he stretches out or speeds up phrases to depict Hook's fluctuating moods. When Peter is boasting in a guessing game with Hook, Cazenove uses a prideful voice. But his voice is anxious when Peter becomes aware of Tink's grave sacrifice for his sake. Cazenove's Wendy sounds dramatic as she delivers her "gentleman" speech to the boys before they walk the plank, and his Smee is appropriately swaggering. Families will enjoy this audio treat. A.R.

  • AudioFile Magazine Elementary-aged children will enjoy spending an afternoon in Never Neverland with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, the magic fairy, and their enemy, Captain Hook. They'll learn how to fly along with Wendy, John and Michael, as long as they believe. The St. Charles Players have done another exemplary job with this performance. Most of the dozen or so parts are well cast, the only notable exception being Peter Pan himself. A young girl reads this part, and it's barely distinguishable from Wendy's. We all need this delightful reminder to never grow up and keep believing! A.G.H. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
