''All children, except one, grow up.'

It was Friday night. Mr and Mrs Darling were dining out. Nana had been tied up in the backyard. The poor dog was barking, for she could smell danger. And she was right - this was the night that Peter Pan would take the Darling children on the most breath-taking adventure of their lives, to a place called Neverland, a strange country where the lost boys live and never grow up, a land with mermaids, fairies and pirates - and of course the terrible, evil, Captain Hook.'

This book is magical.

Reading this book as an adult is like opening a door to your childhood. The fun, adventure and joy of the freedom and innocence of youth is perfectly captured in this story.

I can remember loving Peter Pan as a child and as an adult I feel like I had an even better time reading this book. Not only was it full of nostalgia for me, but looking at it through wiser eyes, I feel like I was able to take more from it.

I think we all reach a time n our lives when we can look at Peter Pan and think that he may have had the right idea about never growing up. No responsibilities, fun and games all the time. Reading this book as an adult made it is easy to see why this book is still so adored by children.

Not only is the story wonderful and the characters amazing, but the actual writing is quite mesmerizing. Its flow and lyrical quality really guide the reader on this magical reading experience.

This is definitely one of those rare books that has stood the test of time and truly earns the title of a classic children's book.

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie is a book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.
