My first 'read' of "Peter Pan" - of course I already knew the story of Peter Pan prior to reading this, or rather, I knew Disney's version of it, but I'd actually never thought to get hold of the original before now.
That was a mistake!
"Peter Pan" is one of the few 'true' classics I've discovered in recent years. A book written for children that still charms when read for the first time as an adult. I found myself laughing out loud several times, and never got the impression that I needed the rosy tint of nostalgia to fully appreciate it.
It's obviously a lot darker than the Disney version, but I wonder whether children pick up on this, or if it's something you don't notice until reading it as an adult.
