Best Review of Peter And Wendy: (peter Pan), Illustrated, 1911 Uk Edition:
Most helpful customer reviews 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Off to Neverland By Aphrodite I will say, I'm not much of a reader but I make it a point to read the things that I believe will keep me entertained and Peter Pan ranks high up there on that list, so when I saw this was free to read on Kindle, I could not pass that up. That being said... and in my honest opinion, I found myself growing quite bored until Pan showed up in the story but, and I hate to even admit this, but after reading this story, (even though I am glad I did), I still feel that I prefer/like the movies I've seen more, and the characters in these movies/tv shows, than how the characters came off in the book.I have high respect for Mr. Barrie and I'm glad to own this book in my collection, but, when it comes to my preference, I will say, I have to stick with the movies. I do feel this is a classic and written very well, very detailed.. and maybe it's because I'm not much of a reader- why I prefer the movies... I'm not sure. I do believe that all children should know of Peter Pan and have a vivid imagination and this might be a lovely story to read at bedtime, for those who want more than just a two hour movie. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Vivid illustrations made me feel like I was an 8 year old again, watching it on the big screen! By Grandma Zizzy This Little Golden Book, based on the 1953 Disney movie (14th in Disney's animated classic series), really does a nice job in condensing the film into 24 pages and doesn't miss much while doing it! All of the characters I remember from my childhood - Wendy, John, Michael, Mr. & Mrs. Darling, Tinker Bell and her pixie dust, and all of the Neverland occupants... Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily, and of course, that persistent croc is still ticking away! Mom took two of my younger sisters and I to see a re-release of this film when I was 8 years old, and while I think some of the scenes were a bit overwhelming for my sisters, I loved every moment and came home imagining I was Wendy! And that's what the beauty of the Peter Pan story is at its core... a celebration of a child's imagination. My grandson really enjoyed hearing this story for the first time last year when I read it to him as he munched on his lunch, and that's another great thing about these books... long enough to give a good flavor of the story, but short enough to read in a limited space of time. The illustrations are vivid and really capture a youngster's imagination! 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful. I was very disappointed in the quality of this book By Robert Solis I was very disappointed in the quality of this book. The cover is very pixelated, the pages look like Xerox copies.

Amazon.com "All children, except one, grow up." Thus begins a great classic of children's literature that we all remember as magical. What we tend to forget, because the tale of Peter Pan and Neverland has been so relentlessly boiled down, hashed up, and coated in saccharine, is that J.M. Barrie's original version is also witty, sophisticated, and delightfully odd. The Darling children, Wendy, John, and Michael, live a very proper middle-class life in Edwardian London, but they also happen to have a Newfoundland for a nurse. The text is full of such throwaway gems as "Mrs. Darling first heard of Peter Pan when she was tidying up her children's minds," and is peppered with deliberately obscure vocabulary including "embonpoint," "quietus," and "pluperfect." Lest we forget, it was written in 1904, a relatively innocent age in which a plot about abducted children must have seemed more safely fanciful. Also, perhaps, it was an age that expected more of its children's books, for Peter Pan has a suppleness, lightness, and intelligence that are "literary" in the best sense. In a typical exchange with the dastardly Captain Hook, Peter Pan describes himself as "youth... joy... a little bird that has broken out of the egg," and the author interjects: "This, of course, was nonsense; but it was proof to the unhappy Hook that Peter did not know in the least who or what he was, which is the very pinnacle of good form." A book for adult readers-aloud to revel in--and it just might teach young listeners to fly. (Ages 5 and older) --Richard Farr From School Library Journal Grade 3-5-- A portion of the royalties from this book are being donated to a British charity, but that's not a strong enough reason to buy it. Four movable pictures (the sort that rotate to dissolve from one scene to another), plus a scattering of tiny, hard-to-find flaps, accompany an incoherently abridged text. The slightly antique-looking art is crudely executed; small figures with distorted or indistinct features change relative sizes from spread to spread, and are placed, in most scenes, with no discernible logic. Stick with the original, available in several handsome editions, or if you must have an abridgment, go for the book/cassette package illustrated by Diane Goode, read by Lynn Redgrave, and adapted by Josette Frank (Random, 1987).- John Peters, New York Public LibraryCopyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Austen's novels (e.g., Pride and Prejudice, Audio s, LJ 11/1/92) have lately received so much well-deserved media attention that another version of her first novel, in yet another format, may appear redundant to persons not sufficiently acquainted with the author's charms. However, for her many admirers, both present and future, this new audiobook is a treasure, thanks to a superb reading by actress Susannah Harker. The talented narrator is an ideal interpreter of Austen's delightful paean to the virtue of sense as she traces the struggles of her young heroines to achieve happiness. Harker skillfully captures each character's personality through subtle inflection, and she keenly, yet unobtrusively, underscores the author's delicious irony. With a reading of such quality, the romantic predicaments of the Miss Dashwoods become all-absorbing and the hours fly by too quickly. Most highly recommended for all libraries.Sister M.
