I'm a fan of Robert Ingpen and this book does not disappoint. It is filled with wonderful, whimsical illustrations that enhance the storytelling perfectly.

First off, I rate this a 4 star only because I did not buy it for myself, but as a gift. So my hands on with the book are limited other than checking it out before I wrapped it. But what I saw of the book was fantastic and would give it a 5 star no problem.

I was specifically looking for a nice Peter Pan book for a gift for my 14 year old niece and there are tons out there, but most are not that nice. This is a bigger book, not a small one to read and throw in a bag. This one is not too large, but bigger than average, worthy of putting on a shelf for display or even a coffee table type deal.

The artwork is beautiful. Seriously nice looking.
The text looked like a nice size, easily readable but not giant like a kids book.
There were no negatives about it as I saw, such as loose binding or smell (sometimes these new processes for mass printing leave a smell or a goo on the book.)
It even came with a ribbon for a book mark.
Also, I believe the pages were gold leaf. Don't quote me on that because I am having trouble remembering, but the book was so nice something like this as an added touch is easily understandable.

Can you find a better Peter Pan book out there? Probably. But not for $13.
This was the perfect edition of the book in my mind. Nice enough that you want to take care of it and keep it forever, but not too nice that you never want to crack the binding and not read it.

My kids love this story and the cover is so chic. It's perfect for obsessed moms who love order and design. These designs are available for almost all of the children's classics in similar illustrations. I ordered this one first to see the quality of the book and now I am going to order a couple different ones each month until I collect them all!

*These are smaller than I thought, they are the same height of a DVD box.

Format: Paperback
I hadn't read "Peter Pan" since I was a kid, that's 50 years ago. I just got a beautiful unabridged edition illustrated with oil paintings by Scott Gustafson (out of print) and gave this classic story another try. "Peter Pan" was first a play, in 1904. Barrie didn't issue the story as a book until 1911.

There's a lot to like about "Peter Pan". It is not dumbed down. Here's a description of Hook: "Peter was such a small boy that one tends to wonder at the man's hatred of him. True he had flung Hook's arm to the crocodile; but even this and the increased insecurity of life to which it led, owning to the crocodile's pertinacity, hardly account for a vindictiveness so relentless and malignant. The truth is that there was a something about Peter which goaded the pirate captain to frenzy. It was not his courage, it was not his engaging appearance, it was not -. There is no beating about the bush, for we know quite well what it was, and have got to tell. It was Peter's cockiness."

Or, how about after the children have disappeared, their parents muse on what they could have done differently. "Mr. Darling always said, 'I am responsible for it all. I, George Darling, did it. Mea culpa, mea culpa.' He had had a classical education."

This latter example brings me to another positive about "Peter Pan". It is definitely written from a child's perspective. The story of how Nana, the Newfoundland nurse, was exiled to the dog house, and so not there to protect the children from Peter's guile, is a very funny child's take on the illogicality and hypocrisy of grown-ups. And it's all done in comic form.

I would guess that the vocabulary and themes make "Peter Pan" most appropriate for the 10-years-and-up age group, unless the book is being read out loud.

I looked for some time for a nice hardbound original Peter Pan. Since I read a lot of reviews myself I feel compelled to write one and endorse this edition. The illustration is very nice and the edition is really pretty. It's perfect size for reading aloud. Very nice edition.

The cover artwork sold me. I love collecting different editions of Peter Pan and the chalk cover is so unique. The rough pages are a nice little touch, as well.

This book is perfect for someone who likes adventure! I love the story of Peter Pan and I feel that anybody that has not read it should. This particular book has a beautiful cloth cover, and is a great addition to any book collection. It is of good quality, as it has held up very well. It is about the size of a DVD case and the print size is fairly easy to read.

I'm so impressed by the book. It's a story I love and the presentation is just outstanding. The book is one that will wear well with time, one that's made new to look loved and read, and reread. The edges are even ruffled so it just looks great, beyond what I had hoped. It was shipped to the UK quickly too so that was another plus :)
