In Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, J.M. Barrie first created Peter Pan as a baby, living a wild and secret life with birds and fairies in the middle of London. Later Barrie let this remarkable child grow a little older and he became the boy-hero of Neverland, making his first appearance, with Wendy, Captain Hook, and the Lost Boys, in Peter and Wendy. The Peter Pan stories were Barrie's only works for children but, as their persistent popularity shows, their themes of imaginative escape continue to charm even those who long ago left Neverland. This is the first edition to include both texts in one volume and the first to a present an extensively annotated text for Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens.

I plan on decorating my room as a Peter Pan theme. So I think this would be a good story to read on the first day of school or even the first week of school.
I liked some of this. Peter was effectively quite creepy, which was enjoyable, and a lot of the descriptions and whimsy were nice. However it was really difficult to get past how profoundly racist it was, and the sexism didn't help. I know, I know, 1911, but I really can't picture presenting this to...
Welcome to Neverland! For three lucky children living in London, nothing could seem better than a faraway world where you were free to play all day. In this magical world, there would be no school. And no parents to tell you to brush your teeth. Or to sit up straight, or to eat your vegetables. Bes...
