For many of us, PETER PAN is one of those stories we know from popular culture but have never actually read. Now is the time to learn what a wonderful (and often adult) story it is. Tim Curry provides the perfect introduction with his rich voice, British accent, and tongue lodged firmly in cheek. He creates a magical world of pirates, fairies, dog-as-nanny, lost children, and the boy who never grows up. Curry develops distinctive voices for all the characters--Captain Hook is a particular delight--and employs an appropriately slow pace, making it feel as if he is reading us a bedtime story.
