J.M. Barrie's classic tale of the "boy who would not grow up" Peter Pan originally appeared as a baby living a magical life among birds and fairies in J.M. Barrie’s sequence of stories, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. His later role as flying boy hero was brought to the stage by Barrie in the beloved play Peter Pan, which opened in 1904 and became the novelPeter and Wendy in 1911. In a narrative filled with vivid characters, epic battles, pirates, fairies, and fantastic imagination, Peter Pan’s adventures capture the spirit of childhood—and of rebellion against the role of adulthood in conventional society. This edition includes the novel and the stories, as well as an introduction by eminent scholar Jack Zipes. Looking at the man behind Peter Pan and sifting through the psychological interpretations that have engaged many a critic, Zipes explores the larger cultural and literary contexts in which we should appreciate Barrie’s enduring creation and shows why Peter Pan is a work not for children but for adults seeking to reconnect with their own imagination.

Recounting the more than century-long stage and screen history of J.M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan, Bruce K. Hanson updates and expands his 1993 volume on “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up.” Hanson traces the origin of Barrie’s tale through the first London production in 1904, to various British and American theatrical and film productions up to and including the stage versions of 2010. Included are excerpts of interviews with actresses Dinah Sheridan, Mary Martin and Sandy Duncan, all of whom portrayed Peter Pan on stage, and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, lyricists for the 1954 Broadway musical. The book features a wealth of rare photos, posters, programs and costume designs. An appendix lists virtually every actor who has performed a featured role in a London, Broadway or Hollywood production of Peter Pan from 1904 to the present.

Even the youngest of readers and listeners can fly away to Neverland with this simplified adaptation of J. M. Barrie's beloved play. This 1907 version was created shortly after the play's debut with the author's consent and approval. Initially published as a keepsake for children to take home from the theater, this richly illustrated rendition also functioned as a consolation to those unable to see the play. A century later, the book offers an enchanting introduction to the boy who wouldn't grow up and his magical world. Twenty-eight fantastical watercolor illustrations by a prominent English artist complement the storybook rendering of the original play. Alice B. Woodward's fanciful images recall the style of her contemporary, Golden Age of Illustration artist Arthur Rackham. Readers of all ages will fall in love all over again with this vivid retelling of the Darling children's adventures among pirates, mermaids, Indians, and a tribe of Lost Boys.
