This is a beautifully illustrated hardcover book. Probably best suited for children aged 5 to 9 because there is a fair amount of text. Each double page has one side as an illustration and the other is a full page of text. A beautiful book and a stunning gift. Highly recommended for any family that enjoys classical stories and fairy tales.
Full of enchantment and wonder, this famous fairy tale by J. M. Barrie, ingeniously painted to life by Patricia Castelao Costa, is sure to be a treasure in any children's book collection.
This is the classic tale of Peter Pan, a boy who never wants to grow up. One night, he teaches the Darling children how to fly and leads them to visit his home of Neverland.
There, the children fly, battle a crookedly hooked pirate, rescue an Indian princess, and come face to face with a tick-tocking crocodile.
But before long, Wendy longs for home and the Darlings return to their bedroom, where Peter returns, in the same boy form, many years later to see Wendy all grown up.
