Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan, a classic tale but nothing surprising. The illustrations in this book are pretty cool, and my 4 year old son really likes this book. The narrative is not my favorite, however (I think it's because of the little side comments that the author makes in an attempt to sound ... hip? modern? ironic? ... I don't know, I could do without them). But overall, it's a good book for a 3-5 year-old and I'm glad we have it.
Beautifully illustrated. A true treasure - just wish it was available in hardcover and that some of the illustrations were not stretched across the binding.
I saw this book at the Walt Disney Museum in San Francisco (an adult museum dedicated to the man's life). This book was in the gift shop, but I decided to pass, then changed my mind at home and ordered it on Amazon.
The illustrations are lovely, although many are castoffs, background, or not really defined. Thats ok, because it lends the book a dream-like ambiance. What I really like is how it is written. It is an artful and lighthearted retelling of the story, not the usual heavy handed writting in children's Disney books.
I love Mary Blair so any book I find with her illustrations, I'm all for adding it to my children's collections, but I must confess, this one might be more for me than for my girls. The illustrations are more abstract and are very loosly drawn. The colors are sophisticated and beautiful. I think my kids will appreciate it later, but for now, as toddlers, they haven't been as drawn to it as I have been. I love the book. I was a bit sad to see some cut lines in the cover under the paper wrap cover.
This is the third storybook Disney has published that puts Mary Blair's Disney concept art to it's story, rewritten in this case by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson to match the art Blair left behind. The story at times seems stilted because it has to work with what had already been drawn, but succeeds overall in re-imagining a classic. You will not regret buying this fun storybook full of some of the most beautiful images ever made on the Disney lot. Truly inspirational and a study for anyone in the art/design/animation world.
We love, love, love this book!! We received it as a gift signed by the author when our daughter was 2.5 and it quickly became a favorite for both kids and adults in our family. Our daughter still reads it at 5 years old and our younger son has grown to love it as well. It is a creative version of a classic tale, very cleverly written. We give it as a gift over and over again...
Beautiful illustrations but uses the word kill by cook and tinker bell character. Not appropriate for a 5 year old.
great product at a great price with super fast delivery! Thanks!!!!
