For children raised on Disney videos and not quite ready to tackle the original novel, this version of Peter Pan is a welcome alternative. It is well dramatized for a full cast and includes some excellent voices. The lines of the all-British cast are woven together with narrated segments, and the production uses music and sound effects effectively. Most notable is Michael Jayston as Captain Hook, who manages to sound as diabolical as his character calls for. The only caveat is that there is little attempt to soften the novel's treatment of Native Americans, some of which now sounds dated and insensitive.
