Peter Pan and Wendy (abridged)
by J.M. Barrie
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen
“Then Peter knew that there was not a moment to lose. ‘Come,’ he cried imperiously, and soared out at once into the night, followed by John and Michael and Wendy.”
J.M.Barrie's classic tale of the boy who wouldn't grow up is retold here in abridged form so children can read it independently as well as enjoy listening to it as a bedtime story.
When Peter Pan flies in through the Darling children’s nursery window in search of his shadow, the scene is set for a wonderful tale of adventure and excitement that has captured the imagination of children and adults for more than a century.
Leaving their nursery far behind, Wendy and her two brothers join Peter on a journey to the Neverland, a magical place filled with fantastic characters like the Lost Boys, fairies, mermaids, and pirates, including, of course, their notorious leader Captain Hook. With its daring escapades and epic battles, Peter Pan and Wendy captures the spirit of childhood and has become one of the best-loved children’s books of all time. Abridged edition for younger readers.
