Gr 4-7-J. M. Barrie's classic tale comes to life in this radio play adaptation. Young listeners will once again be thrilled with the antics of Peter, Wendy, Michael, the Lost Boy, Captain Hook, and Tinkerbell. The voices of the children and adult actors are well suited to the story. There are a few places where the dialogue is a little fuzzy, but overall the audio quality is very clear. Following the original tale closely, this radio play is a refreshing change from traditional books on tape and will provide pleasurable listening for young readers. Teachers may want to use it as anexample for expressive reading and acting techniques. A unique selection to add to audio collections.-Ginny Harrell, William M.

A number of classic children's books return in milestone and reissued editions for a new generation. J.M. Barrie's enchanting Peter Pan: 100th Anniversary Edition features a large trim for reading aloud and rich, detailed illustrations by Michael Hague (which he originally published in 1987). Peter Pan's flyaway red hair and tattered garment of "skeleton leaves and the juices that ooze out of trees" capture the free spirit of the boy who refused to grow up.
