One hundred years after J.M. Barrie published Peter and Wendy, Maria Tatar revisits a story that bridges the generations, animating adults and children with its energy. The adventures of the Darling children with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell in Neverland are seminal tales of escape and fantasy. Inspired by Barrie's adventures with the five Llewelyn Davies boys he adopted, the story of Peter Pan has a deep and controversial history that comes alive in Tatar's new edition. This brilliantly designed volume - with period photographs, full colour images by iconic illustrators, commentary on stage and screen versions and an array of supplementary material, including Barrie's screenplay for a silent film - will draw readers into worlds of incandescent beauty, flooding them with the radiance of childhood wonder and the poignancy of what we lose when we grow up.
