"Come Away, Come Away!" is Peter Pan's irresistible call to the Darling children-and to generations of readers who have traveled with him to Neverland and all the secret places in a child's heart. With a magic and emotional appeal unmatched by any other story, Barrie's Peter Pan speaks directly to childhood's dreams and desires with an imaginative genius that evokes both laughter and tears. Peter, the boy who wouldn't grow up; Nana, the Darling children's nurse and pet Newfoundland; deliciously dreadful Captain Hook, who is stalked by a crocodile with a clock in his stomach; and Tinker Bell, "quite a common fairy," who swears like a sailor and is murderously jealous-these characters of startling originality are rich, funny, mischievously insightful, and a joy to read about again and again. The result is a masterpiece of literature that has been working its timeless wonderment on us since it first appeared in 1904.Barrie, J. M. is the author of 'Peter Pan', published 1987 under ISBN 9780451520883 and ISBN 0451520882.
