Waterstones Says

Neverland, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook – the roll call of iconic creations that bless this Edwardian classic is seemingly endless, and yet despite the story’s familiarity it is worth noting the deftness with which Barrie’s spins his prose and the delicious darkness that lurks just beneath the surface thrills.

Come Away! Come Away!

The Darling children are tucked up in bed when Peter Pan bursts in to their nursery. Peter and his mischievous fairy Tinker Bell entice Wendy and her brothers to fly away with them to a magical world called Neverland. There you can swim with mermaids and play all day with the Lost Boys. But you must watch out for pirates, especially Captain Hook.

And how do you find Neverland? Second to the right and straight on till morning of course...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Intensely moving as well as enchanting in its evocation of childhood, the heartlessness of youth and parental grief as children grow older.' - Daily Telegraph

'One of the classic children's stories of all time.' - Daily Mail

'Clap your hands for the boy who refused to grow up and whom the world will never allow to grow old.' - Geraldine McCaughrean, Carnegie Medal Winner

'So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!' - National Association for the Teaching of English
