Robert Ingpen's beautiful illustrations breathe new life into this most famous of modern fairy stories. This classic tale of a boy who wouldn't grow up has retained its popularity since publication, first as a play and then as a novel in 1911. Robert first attempted illustrating this classic when he was only seven years old and, remarkably, still has his early drawings. The mature work demonstrated in this, his first classic of the series, captivates the reader as they embark upon the astonishing adventures of Peter Pan and Wendy, the Lost Boys, the mischievous fairy Tinkerbell and the notorious Captain Hook.
J.M. Barrie's most enduring work, Peter Pan, was first written as a play and performed in London in 1904. Robert Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children's literature.
