Ich denke zur Geschichte an sich muss man nicht mehr viel sagen. Das hier ist die original englische Fassung, soweit ich weiß ungekürzt.
Und nun zum Buch: Es ist Hardcover und die goldenen Elemente (die Sonne, Peter und die Kinder) schimmern, das Buch sieht von außen richtig schön "alt" aus und auch der Buchrücken gefällt mir sehr gut! Das Innere war für mich aber eine viel größere Überraschung: so sind hier nicht nur farbige Bilder drin enthalten, sondern auch Figuren zum Hochklappen, oder zusätzliche Informationen usw. Alles sehr detailliert und toll aufgearbeitet. Ich hatte vorher schon ein Buch von Peter Pan, aber ich bin so froh, dass ich das Geld für diese Ausgabe ausgegeben habe! Da macht es gleich noch mehr Spaß zu Lesen! :)

but very different to the movie (was a bit unexpected) but anyway a great book to read. Maybe not really for beginners because the english is a bit old fashioned (well the book is old). But for reader with a good knowledge of english the book is a really enjoyable trip back to childhood memories.

Die Peter Pan Ausgabe ist wohl mein Lieblingscover der Puffin Chalk Reihe. Das Buch ist klein und handlich, die schrift angenehm groß und leserlich. Für alle, die sich eine schöne Edition des Klassikers in's Regal stellen möchten, dass ich diese Ausgabe nur empfehlen.

Ein super Kinderbuch Klassiker, der schöne Kindheitserinnerungen wach ruft. Er ist absolut für jedes Alter geeignet, solange man sich nur darauf einlässt von Worten verzaubert zu werden und in eine Phantasiewelt abzutauchen.

Manchmal muss man als Erwachsener seine Kindheitserinnerungen auffrischen und sich einen solchen Film aus Kindertagen anschauen. Hat mich damals begeistert, tat es heute auch wieder. Wunderschön und sehr unterhaltsam!! :)

Habe alle drei Bücher aus der Puffin Chalk Serie bestellt, da der Umschlag sehr liebevoll von der Künstlerin Dana Tanamachi gestaltet ist. Alles ist von Hand mit Kreide gezeichnet... von solchen Büchern sollte es mehr geben. Sehr schönes Geschenk wie ich finde... :)

"Peter Pan" is a great book for children and adults alike about the power of make-believe and dreams.

The Scottish author James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937) studied literature at the Edinburgh university and worked as a journalist before he moved to London. Here he started to write playwrights and novels, which made him very famous. Barrie befriended the Llewelyn Davies family with their five children, which he later adopted as their parents died. He liked to amuse the kids with stories. One of this stories was about a boy who never wanted to grow up. The play Peter Pan was first staged in 1904 with great success. Seven years later Peter Pan was published in novel form. The play is still on stage and the book has been made to several movies.
The Darling family has three children: Wendy, John and Michael. Their nanny is the Newfoundland dog Nana. It is a lovely little family, but then one night when Mrs. Darling was cleaning up her childrens minds, she heard the name of Peter Pan. And not long after that the children opened the window and flew away with Peter Pan and the fairy Tinker Bell to Neverland. On this island they meet the Lost boys, who Peter is the chief of and Wendy becomes their mother. She has to take care for them not to forget their medicine and always go to bed in time for the good-night stories. Everyday the boys are in an adventure with beasts, redskins, the never bird, mermaids and the eternal battle against the Pirates with their cruel captain Hook. Will the Darlington kids ever return to their home or will they stay forever in Neverland? "I solemnly promise that it will all come right in the end."
J. M. Barrie adresses the reader directly and drags him into a land full of fantasy. A story to laugh, bite nails and shed a tear. Altough it is primarly a story for children, it has also often a metaphorical meaning, like the crocodile with the ticking clock inside its stomach. Captain Hook always begins to sweat when he hears the clock ticking, because he knows, his enemy, who ate his hand is near. "Some day the clock will run down, and then he' ll get you."
The essence of the book is to believe in imagination and dreams. Children can see a lot of colours and shades, but from the point they know they have to grow up, they forget everything about Neverland, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell. They just walk day after day to the office and think about money. But there is still hope for everyone. Read the book, remember your child days and watch the children play with their imaginary friends. "...when a baby laughs for the first time a new fairy is born..."

I've never watched a Peter Pan movie adaptation (save Hook, but I never thought this to have much to do with the original story), and being bored I thought I should read this very famous book.
Well, the writing of the author is not bad and interesting, escpecially because it gives an insight to children's literature more than 100 years ago.
Some elements of the story are nice as well (eternal childhood, dreaming / make-belief, Neverland).
But to be honest, I couldn't relate to a single character. I basically found nothing nice or even anything to identify with. Mrs. Darling would be quite ok, but that's not a really great character, too. Everything is just about Peter and maybe Wendy, but even that is not much more than a careless, cruel and abusive relationship between a little girl with helper's syndrome and a mentally kind of broken psychopath and murderer who turn perfectly normal kids into passionate killers as well. Potentially loveable or relatable (or at least hateable (I can't even hate anyone, just dislike everyone in one way or another) characters (Tiger Lily?) are not elaborated at all.
For me, there is nothing child-, dream- or fairytale-like about it. I don't care about a single protagonist, Neverland seems disgusting and the only thing I feel is pity for the parents, that is, if the father didn't behave like a complete jerk.

Peter Pan: A bratty, absusive guy that acts like a tyrant. Besides he rejoices in murder and corporal punishment. He doesn’t care about whom to murder (Lost Boys: “thin them out”) and forgets his killing sprees very fast (one year later he forgot the 15 pirates including Hook. He is not capable of any profound feelings or relationships. I can’t see any kid being this ruthless unless it is to become a psychopath. Furthermore, he has severe mother-issues and keeps abducting little girls to be his “mother”. When sleeping he turns into a crybaby. He should be forced to a mental institution immediately as any other little kid that dreams about being like him.

Neverland: An Island where everything on it tries to murder each other (and keeps doing so): Peter Pan and the lost boys, the Indians, the animals, the pirates, even the mermaids and fairies are not nice but murderous beings.

Wendy: Incredibly misguided little girl who doesn’t realize how abusive Peter treats her. Maybe I can understand her affection for the lost boys, but remember, they are murderers. Afterwards she lets her daughter go with Peter for cleaning his house every year because Peter “so needs a mother” (he openly hates mothers and accepts only little girls to be his housewifes).
Wendy’s brothers: Non-existent personality, no personality development save turning to killers and subordinate followers of Peter. And they forget their parents after some months and accept Wendy as their mother (for real?).

Lost Boys: A gang of murdering and rampaging ruffians who kill at command. Seriously, they know what a girl is (i.e. Tiger Lily) and can fly. But when the wicked fairy Tinker Bell tells them to kill the flying Wendy on Peters behalf, they do it without hesitating.

Mr. and Mrs. Darling: Somehow the least disgusting people. If you don’t mind Mr. Darling having severe mental issues after his kids are gone (going to work and generally living in a dog’s cage).

Tinker Bell: A jealous little fairy that shows some positive traits (like sacrificing herself for Peter) but tries to kill Wendy repeatedly.

Tiger Lily: Seems to be a brave character with some substance. But we’ll never know because she gets only one line (in retarded English) and makes her and her people slaves to Peter who treats them as inferior species.

Hook: A former Eaton-student with sophisticated manners. But, unfortunately, bent on killing everyone as well.

Like most, I read "Peter and Wendy" (which many know simply as "Peter Pan," and was the basis for the Disney movie) before reading "Kensington Gardens." I completely enjoyed "Kensington," and loved getting to spend a little more time with Pan, getting to know his history and his friends in the garden.
I would recommend "Peter and Wendy" be read before "Kensington Gardens," simply because "Peter and Wendy" will allow the reader to grow fond of the character, and "Kensington" will allow this further insight into his life.
Either way, read 'em both. It's well worth it.

Reading Peter Pan with Beckers illustrations gives me a renewed appreciation of reading childrens stories. The book itself is a collectors piece. The story itself is wonderful of course, a true classic, and the book itself is a perfect vehicle for the story. The pages are silky, the illustrations are magical. It isn't a what you would call a "picture book" but has the right amount of illustrations in it without detracting one from reading. A book to be cherished and kept as a collectors piece.
