Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3-Two songs from the musical Peter Pan, "I'm Flying" and "Never Never Land," tell the story of that very enchanted night in which Peter first arrived in the Darling children's room and their subsequent journey to Neverland. The pastel-colored watercolors evoke the quiet wonder of a world enchanted by fairy dust. Pale grays and blue/green grays contrast with warm yellows and peaches, creating a world aglow at night. And, of course, there is TinkerBell, "no bigger than a pinprick of light." Peter looks like a harmless orphaned wild boy with a vine still clinging to his back and his hair akimbo. Bold type offsets the story that frames the italicized lyrics. The colors are lovely. The lyrics are elegant and timeless with Peter singing, "I'm FLYING!/Flying, flying, flying./I can soar, I can weave./And what's more,/I'm not even trying."-Teresa Pfeifer, The Springfield Renaissance School, Springfield, MAα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

High praise for Blue Apple's picture book rendition of Comden and Green's What's New at the Zoo?:
*"...the lyrics of the Tony-winning duo scan perfectly. Green's widow, Phyllis Newman adds an appealing introduction and afterword. Fresh and vintage at the same time."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred

*A Kirkus Best Books of 2011 selection

"With fun lift-the-flap details and tummy-tickling rhymes, this book will appeal to fans of slapstick humor. The cartoon illustrations really bring the silliness to life. A great read-aloud with an interesting history and musical connection."
--School Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
Make no mistake about it -- this book is beautifully produced and charmingly illustrated. But as a long-time fan of this Broadway show, I found what I think are some crazy-making mistakes in the lyrics. For instance: in the song, "Flying," the rhyme in the book is "... I'm Whizzing! ... Look how far I breeze in." What on Earth does that even mean? The rhyme, as I remember it, is, "I'm whizzin' ... look how far I've risen." And again, at the end of the song, the book has Peter say, "Follow all the air, 'cause I'm about to disappear." Follow all the air?! I believe the original lyrics were, "Follow all the arrows, I'm about to disappear."
Now, I certainly could be wrong -- this show has been around for a long time, and things can get changed over the years. But if I'm right, and the book goes into another edition, I hope they'll correct these -- admittedly small -- but irritating mistakes!

What a lovely way to introduce the classic musical theater version of Peter Pan to young children! The scenes leading up to the children's arrival in Neverland are beautifully drawn, and the lyrics bring enthusiasm and excitement to the story.

My only disappointment is that the book didn't continue to tell the entire story, but, realistically, that would have made a very thick volume.

I grew up loving the original cast album of Comden & Green's musical adaptation of Barrie's Peter Pan. I look forward to sharing this book with grandchildren one day.

This is an absolutely beautiful book. The wonderful illustrations by Amy Bates are by far the strength of the book. Imaginative, clever, endearing--a great book!!!
