Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J. M. Barrie Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up, is one of the immortals of children's literature. J. M. Barrie first created Peter Pan as a baby, living in secret with the birds and fairies in the middle of London, but as the children for whom he invented the stories grew older, so too did Peter, reappearing in Neverland, where he was aided in his epic battles with Red Indians and pirates by the motherly and resourceful Wendy Darling. With their contrary lures of home and escape, childhood and maturity, safety and high adventure, these unforgettable tales are equally popular with children and adults.

    Somehow, this book fell a little flat for me.I enjoyed reading it, no doubt, but I think this was more due to the writing style (which was very easy for me to read) than the actual plot or the charact...
