J.M. Barrie's classic tale of the "boy who would not grow up"

Peter Pan originally appeared as a baby living a magical life among birds and fairies in J.M. Barrie’s sequence of stories, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. His later role as flying boy hero was brought to the stage by Barrie in the beloved play Peter Pan, which opened in 1904 and became the novelPeter and Wendy in 1911. In a narrative filled with vivid characters, epic battles, pirates, fairies, and fantastic imagination, Peter Pan’s adventures capture the spirit of childhood—and of rebellion against the role of adulthood in conventional society.

This edition includes the novel and the stories, as well as an introduction by eminent scholar Jack Zipes. Looking at the man behind Peter Pan and sifting through the psychological interpretations that have engaged many a critic, Zipes explores the larger cultural and literary contexts in which we should appreciate Barrie’s enduring creation and shows why Peter Pan is a work not for children but for adults seeking to reconnect with their own imagination.

Peter Pan is the enchanting story of a boy who wouldn’t grow up and the girl he promised to always remember.

Peter Pan and Tinker Bell whisk the children away to Neverland to join the Lost Boys in their epic struggle against the evil Captain Hook.
 
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is the story that taught the world “there’s no place like home.” In a fairy tale so powerful that it seems every child is born knowing it, a tornado transports Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, from the flat prairies of Kansas to the marvelous Land of Oz. A fantastic journey soon follows as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion travel the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City, where they hope all their dreams will come true.
 
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is an irresistible ode to the joys of childhood. An immediate sensation when it was first published one hundred fifty years ago, Lewis Carroll’s groundbreaking fantasy novel takes readers on a incredible journey from a drowsy riverbank in England to an extraordinary world populated with unforgettable characters including the anxious White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the grinning Cheshire Cat, and the notorious Queen of Hearts.
 
The Swiss Family Robinson is the beloved story of a family marooned on a desert island. Left behind by the crew and other passengers of their wrecked ship, four brothers and their steadfast parents build a home in the jungle wilderness, complete with livestock, a small farm, and a sturdy tree house for shelter. In no time, the Robinson family learns how much can be accomplished through hard work, cooperation, curiosity, and perseverance.

For young dreamers, nostalgic parents, and imaginative readers of all ages, this wonderful eBook collection not only contains five of the most beloved children’s books in the world but some of the most admired and enduring literature ever put to page. Each of these can be considered a “Household Book,” as A. A. Milne so affectionately described The Wind in the Willows—books that “everybody in the household loves, and quotes continually ever afterwards; [books which are] read aloud to every new guest.”
 
THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
Kenneth Grahame
 
Written by Kenneth Grahame as bedtime stories for his son, The Wind in the Willows continues to delight readers today. Basing his fanciful animal characters on human archetypes, Grahame imparts a gentle, playful wisdom in his timeless tales. Few readers will be able to resist an invitation to join the Wild Wooders at Toad Hall, enjoy a quick splash in the river with Rat and Badger, or take a swerving ride with Toad in a “borrowed” motor-car.
 
ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS
Lewis Carroll
 
Conceived by a shy British don on a golden afternoon to entertain ten-year-old Alice Liddell and her sisters, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass have delighted generations of readers in more than eighty languages. “The clue to the enduring fascination and greatness of the Alice books,” writes A. S. Byatt in her Introduction, “lies in language. It is play, and word-play, and its endless intriguing puzzles continue to reveal themselves long after we have ceased to be children.”
 
PETER PAN
J. M. Barrie
 
Set in London and and the magical Neverland, J. M. Barrie’s tale of a boy who refuses to grow up has delighted generations of readers. In this novel, which Barrie adapted from his 1904 play, Peter introduces Wendy, Michael, and John Darling to the fairy Tinker Bell and the lost boys. Together, they do battle with Captain Hook and his fierce band of pirates.
 
THE THREE MUSKETEERS
Alexandre Dumas
 
First published in 1844, Alexandre Dumas’s swashbuckling epic chronicles the adventures of D’Artagnan, a gallant young nobleman who journeys to Paris in 1625 hoping to join the ranks of the musketeers guarding Louis XIII. He soon finds himself fighting alongside three heroic comrades—Athos, Porthos, and Aramis—who seek to uphold the honor of the king by foiling the wicked plots of Cardinal Richelieu and the beautiful spy “Milady.”

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens – Peter is a seven-day-old infant who, "like all infants", used to be part bird. Peter has complete faith in his flying abilities, and he manages to escape out of the window of his London home and return to Kensington Gardens. Upon returning to the Gardens, Peter is shocked to learn from the crow Solomon Caw that he is not still a bird, but more like a human. Peter and Wendy – Peter Pan is the leader of the Lost Boys on the island of Neverland that is inhabited by mermaids, fairies, Native Americans and pirates. He takes Wendy Darling and her two brothers to their magic world and they have many adventures with Peter, his fairy Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, and the pirate Captain Hook. Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up is a fairy play about a mischievous yet innocent little boy who can fly, and has many adventures on the island of Neverland with Wendy Darling and her two brothers. When Wendy Grew Up – Peter returns for Wendy years later. But she is now grown up with a daughter of her own named Jane. When Peter learns that Wendy has "betrayed" him by growing up, he is heartbroken until Jane agrees to come to Neverland as Peter's new mother. The Story of Peter Pan is a retelling of the Peter Pan story by Daniel O'Connor. The Peter Pan Alphabet by Oliver Herford contains Peter Pan themed rhymes for each letter of the alphabet.
J.M. Barrie's timeless tale of the 'boy who would not grow up' Peter Pan is edited with an introduction by Jack Zipes in Penguin Classics. When Peter Pan and his fairy companion Tinker Bell fly in through the window of Wendy's nursery one night, it is the beginning of an adventure that whisks Wendy and her brothers Michael and John off to Neverland. There they will find mermaids, fairies, pirates led by the sinister Captain Hook, and the crocodile who bit off his leg - and still pursues him in hope of the rest! Peter Pan originally appeared as a baby living a magical life among birds and fairies in J.M. Barrie's sequence of stories, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. His adventures capture the spirit of childhood - and of rebellion against the role of adulthood in conventional society. This edition includes the novel and the stories, and reproduces the original illustrations by Francis Donkin Bedford and Arthur Rackham. In his introduction, Jack Zipes sifts through the psychological interpretations that have engaged critics, explores the cultural and literary contexts in which we can appreciate Barrie's enduring creation, and shows why Peter Pan is fundamentally a work that urges adults to reconnect with their own imagination. James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937) was born in Scotland, the son of a weaver. In 1885, he moved to London to pursue a literary career. Peter Pan, with its flying and theatrical devices, was a huge success and continues to be performed today; in 1911 Barrie rewrote the play as a novel. On his death in 1937 Barrie gifted copyright of the play Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street hospital. If you enjoyed Peter Pan you might like Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, also available in Penguin Classics. 'One of the classic children's stories of all time' Daily Mail 'Intensely moving as well as enchanting in its evocation of childhood, the heartlessness of youth and parental grief as children grow older' Daily Telegraph
