Originally a highly popular, long-running play (1904-1913) Peter Pan is the timeless classic about a magical young boy who refused to grow old. Published as a novel known as both “Peter and Wendy” and “The Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up” in 1911, the story follows Peter’s relationship with Wendy, where he eventually persuades her to join him in the fairy tale world of Neverland to be a mother to him and his friends The Lost Boys. But not all is safe in Neverland, as the Peter’s evil adversary Captain Hook tries to thwart Peter and his friend’s fun on multiple occasions. Ending in the climatic final duel between Peter and Captain Hook, this story is filled with action, adventure, family bonds, and an infamous ticking crocodile.Available Formats:6.6 hrs • May/22/2016 • Unabridged
Peter Pan“All children, except one, grow up.” When Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow, he teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to the island of Neverland. There they embark on an awfully big adventure.The Inconsiderate WaiterIn the world of the Victorian Club, it does not do for a gentleman to be seen to take an interest in any member of the working class. How dreadfully inconvenient then, when the narrator’s waiter begins to display alarming tendencies towards having a personality and feelings of his own. The last thing any respectable gentleman should do is permit himself to be drawn into this dubious world—let alone entertain emotions such as interest or empathy for a member of the lower class.Available Formats: CD1.0 hrs • Apr/26/2016 • Unabridged
Basically, Daniel O'Connor took the story from the original play, with the approval of Barrie, and shortened it into a book with music and beautiful illustrations. This shorter book was published before Barrie wrote the longer novel Peter and Wendy using the same plot and characters.Available Formats:0.7 hrs • May/13/2015 • Unabridged

He lures them away from their home and parents and takes them away to endless adventures in the magical Neverland, where they meet the wicked captain Hook and a host of other characters.

Barrie works an indisputable magic on listeners of all ages in this classic tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up. As a baby, Peter Pan fell out of his carriage and was taken by fairies to Neverland. There, he can fly and is the champion of the Lost Boys and a friend to the fairy Tinker Bell. Revisiting England, Peter becomes involved with Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, all of whom accompany Peter to Neverland. The children have many adventures and vanquish the pirate Captain Hook. The Darlings eventually return home with the Lost Boys, leaving Peter Pan to his perpetual boyhood.

Peter Pan first flew across a London stage in 1904, overwhelming audiences with its tale of a magical boy who never grows up, who lures young Wendy and her brothers to Neverland, where they meet pirates, Indians, fairies, and the Lost Boys. J. M. Barrie revised and expanded the story and published it as this novel. For children, it remains a marvelous mix of fantasy and adventure, featuring unique, imaginative characters who frisk and frolic in an enchanting land.For adults, the story of Peter and the Lost Boys works on a much deeper level, speaking to them about the inevitable loss of childhood and the ability “to fly.” The climactic duel between Peter Pan and Captain Hook is both a swashbuckling romp and a moving metaphor for the complex, poignant struggle between innocent but irresponsible youth and tainted but dependable maturity.Available Formats:5.7 hrs • Oct/05/2006 • Unabridged
