This is the third storybook Disney has published that puts Mary Blair's Disney concept art to it's story, rewritten in this case by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson to match the art Blair left behind. The story at times seems stilted because it has to work with what had already been drawn, but succeeds overall in re-imagining a classic. You will not regret buying this fun storybook full of some of the most beautiful images ever made on the Disney lot. Truly inspirational and a study for anyone in the art/design/animation world.

Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan, a classic tale but nothing surprising. The illustrations in this book are pretty cool, and my 4 year old son really likes this book. The narrative is not my favorite, however (I think it's because of the little side comments that the author makes in an attempt to sound ... hip? modern? ironic? ... I don't know, I could do without them). But overall, it's a good book for a 3-5 year-old and I'm glad we have it.

I like Dave Barry, but I feel like he probably had a limited number of the illustrator's pieces to work with here, and was trying to fit the story to the limited pictures available to him. As a result, the story seems a little forced at times -- or the picture doesn't really match the text. It feels like he tried to touch on aspects of each picture he had, but it could have been better if parts had been left out, as it just seemed like the plot was being rushed through (whereas if he had more of the illustrations, he could have made the story less all over the place and focused on what smaller plot within the story as a whole). I also don't love the artist's work (which I'm sure is sacriligous), but it was a really cool idea to do this. My almost 3 year old seems to really like this though -- it's just kind of long to get through each time. I love the opening and the ending though, and parts of it definitely capture some of Dave Barry's excellent humor (in a funny way). I don't think anyone could have done a better job with it - I just think they needed to have more selection in the illustrations.

I love Mary Blair's illustrations but this book is not served well by Dave Barry's cloyingly cutesy storytelling. Had I remembered the racist components of "Peter Pan" (regarding Native Americans) I would not have purchased this.

I love Mary Blair so any book I find with her illustrations, I'm all for adding it to my children's collections, but I must confess, this one might be more for me than for my girls. The illustrations are more abstract and are very loosly drawn. The colors are sophisticated and beautiful. I think my kids will appreciate it later, but for now, as toddlers, they haven't been as drawn to it as I have been. I love the book. I was a bit sad to see some cut lines in the cover under the paper wrap cover.

As I was reading this book to my boys, I kept thinking how masterfully it was being told. Most children I would think have only experienced Peter Pan on DVD. What a joy to read this beautiful, engaging story to my children. If you have read "The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear", you will love the way this book has been written with the same engaging text. It took me approximately 20 minutes to read. I was not overwhelmed by the volume of text at bedtime! The pictures are on one page and a small paragraph on the facing page. The amazing animation by Mary Blair are an imagination gold mine. I wish I had read this to my kids prior to them every seeing the movie. Don't make the same mistake I have!

Format: Hardcover
A bland and dull summary of the animated adaptation of J. M. Barriers tale, supplemented by images drawn from pieces of original film concept art that relate only vaguely to the words on the page. This book might appeal to the nostalgia of grownups with fond memories of the film, but will bore children half to death with its broad strokes strokes and superficial glossing over of plot and character. It reads like a second grader's book report. The pictures are nice enough enough to look at, but, being impressionistic ideas rather than focused illustrations of the narrative, are rather rough, and they add little of interest to the story being clumsily told. If you're looking looking for a version of Peter Pan to share with your kids, skip this book. There are plenty of much better ones out there.

We love, love, love this book!! We received it as a gift signed by the author when our daughter was 2.5 and it quickly became a favorite for both kids and adults in our family. Our daughter still reads it at 5 years old and our younger son has grown to love it as well. It is a creative version of a classic tale, very cleverly written. We give it as a gift over and over again...
