I recommend this publishing for everyone, parents, children and whoever appreciate the art of illustration.
The origins of "Peter Pan" are quite muddled, first appearing in an adult's book titled "The White Bird," after which the relevant chapters were transferred into a children's book titled "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens" (which involves Peter's escape from his home into the company of fairies who live in Kensington Gardens). From there, Barrie used the titular character in his children's play "Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up," and later adapted the story into a novel called "Peter and Wendy" - though now it's usually simply titled "Peter Pan."
It's complicated, but the fact of the matter is that if you haven't read this original text of "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie, then you really don't know the story at all. The Disney movie, the stage productions (especially those that aren't based on Barrie's own script), or one of the myriad of abridged picture books, simply don't count.

Peter is a boy that refuses to grow up. He lives in Neverland with his fairy, Tinkerbell, and the Lost Boys. He visits the nursery of Wendy, Michael, and John Darling to hear Wendy's marvelous stories, and one night loses that pesky shadow. When he comes back to get it and tries to stick it back on, Wendy discovers this new boy in their nursery and soon learns about his amazing lifestyle. Entranced by thoughts of pirates, mermaids, and fairies, Wendy, Michael, and John embark on an amazing adventure into a world so unlike ours.
It's bittersweet, it's insightful, it's magical, it's everything and more a child or an adult could ask for in a story. You won't want to leave Neverland, and some days, you may find yourself staring out the window, looking for that hint of light that is Tinkerbell or the boy effortlessly flying between trees and buildings.
Without a doubt the greatest children's story of all time, one that we've all heard, whether it was through a movie or a stage production. Experience the real magic though, and read Barrie's brilliant novel about the boy who won't grow up.
