Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up, is a tale of a mischievous boy who can fly and spends his time on the small island of Neverland. Some of the other characters from J. M. Barrie's classic novel include Peter's friends, Tinker Bell, Wendy, John, and Michael, and Peter's nemesis, Captain Hook.
This book is an all-time classic and is brought to life by the wonderful voice of Ben Lawson!
If your a fan of any of the movies( I've only seen one) I bet this is better! The Benjamin May gives a 5 star preformance. I couldn't stop listening.

THE BLUE ONES ARE LITTLE SILLIES, THAT ARE NOT SURE WHAT THEY ARE.
Believe it or not, I had never read this book or seen any of the movies. I was shocked to find out what a self centered boy, Peter was. When I read Thief, by Brom I thought he was probably over exaggerating the character of Peter Pan.That book is very dark and Peter is fairly evil, and the book should not be read by kids, I now think he did not exaggerate that much. Do not get me wrong though, even though Peter Pan is no John Boy from the Waltons, this is one great book. It is cleverly written and entertaining at all times. I love kid books that don't talk down to the kids and has real life like characters, personality wise that is.
ONE GIRL IS MORE USE THAN 20 BOYS
Some may not like the role Wendy plays as mother and not as an adventurer, but I believe the whole book to be more about the value of women and mothers, than anything else. The Lost Boys and the Pirates fall in love with Wendy, because they want a mother. There are lots of examples of the importance of women in the story. GIRLS ARE MUCH TOO CLEVER TO FALL OUT OF THIER PRAMS
WAS IT NOT BAD FORM TO THINK ABOUT GOOD FORM
Several adult themes are hit on, and it seems that proper gentleman take a huge hit in this.
YOU SILLY ASS
The narrator was okay. I gave him five stars, but there are 27 different readings, so there might be better. He was not great. Don't get an abridged version. There are several of those and the writing is to good, to skip any of it.
