You all know the story of Peter Pan already, probably from the Disney adaptation. I first read this in my early twenties, and I wasn’t disappointed – there’s something here for everyone, the kind of book that parents will enjoy reading just as much as their children will enjoy listening.
For a children’s book, the language is a little heavy, but not excessively so – less so than you would expect when you consider that it’s a classic, written for the children of another generation. In fact, the vocabulary used will improve young minds and ensure that they learn classic English alongside text-speak and meme-isms.
For me, there’s just something about Peter Pan that’s I can’t enjoy, and it hampered my progress through the book. Still, it’s definitely worth a read, particularly for the kids.
