Synopsis

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

It was Friday night. Mr and Mrs Darling were dining out. Nana had been tied up in the backyard. The poor dog was barking, for she could smell danger. And she was right - this was the night that Peter Pan would take the Darling children on the most breath-taking adventure of their lives, to a place called Neverland, a strange country where the lost boys live and never grow up, a land with mermaids, fairies and pirates - and of course the terrible, evil, Captain Hook. Peter Pan is undoubtedly one of the most famous and best-loved stories for children, an unforgettable, magical fantasy which has been enjoyed by generations.

About the Author

J.M. Barrie

J.M. Barrie was a huge supporter of Great Ormond Street Hospital, despite the fact that he and his wife were themselves childless. In 1929, he gave all his rights in Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. This meant that whenever anyone staged a production of the play or brought a copy of the book, the hospital would be the richer for it, instead of Barrie. Over the years, it has proved a more valuable gift than he could ever have imagined.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
