Peter Pan (Hardcover)
Everyone loves a bedtime story -- even Peter Pan himself, who plucked the Darling children from their nursery one night just so Wendy could tell him stories. Join Peter, Tinkerbell, and the Darling children on a magical adventure to Neverland. This new Classic Pop-Ups book brings the beloved J. M. Barrie tale to life with marvelous illustrations by Paul Hess, extraordinary pop-ups, and atmospheric sounds and music. Fly with Peter Pan over London while Big Ben peals over the dark city; enjoy a laugh in Peter's underground home; hear the tick-tocking crocodile attack Captain Hook; and sail back home through the clouds on the Jolly Roger. Peter Pan is an absolutely enchanting book for children of all ages -- including adults who never grew up themselves.
