Considered a masterpiece since its first appearance on stage in 1904,_Peter Pan_is J. M. Barrie?s most famous work and arguably the greatest of all children?s stories. While it is a wonderful fantasy for the young,_Peter Pan,_particularly in the novel form Barrie published in 1911, says something important to all of us. Here _the boy who wouldn?t grow up? and his adventures with Wendy and the lost boys in the Neverland evoke a deep emotional response as they give form to our feelings about parents, boys and girls, the unknown, freedom, and responsibility. Humorous, satiric, filled with suspenseful cliff-hangers and bittersweet truths,_Peter Pan_works an indisputable magic on readers of all ages, making it a true classic of imaginative literature.
