Publisher's Summary

"All children, except one, grow up."
And so begins the story of one of the most beloved characters in children's literature, Peter Pan. J.M. Barrie's classic tale, completely unabridged, features a boy who refuses to grow up, Tinker Bell the fairy, and the Darling children: Wendy, John, and Michael. Their great adventure begins on the night that Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow and teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to Neverland, where adventures happen every day.


Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: This is a rare instance of two outstanding recordings of the same source material being considered for this list of essentials. But while we all enjoyed Jim Dale's enthusiastic performance, it was Tim Curry who most captivated us with his rendition of this classic children's tale. Curry's ability to evoke sheer childhood joy one moment and hide-under-the-sheets menace the next creates a far richer Peter Pan than Disney ever dreamed of. Ed Walloga

Tim Curry, The Voice

If you're only familiar with Peter Pan from Disney or the last movie, you owe it to yourself and your kids to listen to the book that started it all. And this is the version you want.

Tim Curry is a wonderful narrator; his voice of Hook alone will give you shivers and goose-bumps. It's the penultimate pirate voice.

If I were still a kid, in bed, wanting to be read to, this is one of the voices I'd most want to listen to.

He also does the 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' books, by the way.

Simply wonderful

Tim Curry breathes life into this wonderful classic children's story. His voice gives such warm, comic expression to the snooty grown-ups, the treacherous-yet-stumbling pirates, the pouty fairy Tinkerbell, the nervous or excited children, and of course, the cheeky, indignant Peter Pan. Even if you're intimately familiar with the story, Curry's telling is memorable and well worth the listen.
