Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Enchanting I was totally enchanted by this audio book that describes how Peter Pan and the Lost Boys came about. It is full of wondrous magic, pirates, a giant crocodile and even the fairy dust that makes Peter fly. . My daughter insisted that I listen to this book. Her teacher read it to her at school a few years ago and held her class in rapt attention. I am so glad I finally listened to her. . I am not going to tell you anything that happens in the book as I don't want to spoil a thing for you. . If you are looking for a book to read to your child or if you want to relive a magical part of your childhood, make this the next one on your list. I can't wait to start listening to 'Peter and the Shadow Thieves'. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A CLASSIC I love this book because it explains sooo much! Like how Capt. Hook and Peter met, how Capt. Hook lost his hand, where Tinker Bell came from and how come Peter doesn't need pixie dust to fly and many more interesting things about Peter and Neverland. If you haven't added it to your collection yet than your crazy!
