One hundred years after J. M. Barrie published the novel Peter and Wendy, Maria Tatar revisits a story that, like Alice in Wonderland, bridges the generations, animating both adults and children with its kinetic energy. The adventures of the Darling children with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell in Neverland are the seminal tale of escape and fantasy. Inspired by Barrie's real-life adventures with the five Llewelyn Davies boys he adopted, the story of Peter Pan has a deep and controversial history of its own that comes alive in Tatar's new edition. This brilliantly designed volume—with period photographs, full-color images by iconic illustrators, commentary on stage and screen versions, and an array of supplementary material, including Barrie's screenplay for a silent film—will draw readers into worlds of incandescent beauty, flooding them with the radiance of childhood wonder and the poignancy of what we lose when we grow up.

I am very passionate about teaching the importance of loving to learn! I like to instill in my students that learning never stops, no matter how old you get. And learning doesn't stop just because you are out of school... you keep the hunger for knowledge alive always, and this will help you be your best authentic self and help make the world a better place!

I have close to 45 bright students, all in need of being exposed to rich text and the importance of reading! We are a Title 1 school, and all resources are precious and greatly appreciated. Many of them do not have books or resources in their homes, so it is very important to me to be able to help open those doors for them.
