Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J.M. Barrie, illustrated by Arthur Rackham. REISSUE! Before Barrie wrote the play Peter Pan about the boy who never grew up, he wrote this story about Peter Pan as a baby, living a secret life with the birds and fairies in the heart of London’s Kensington Gardens. The story so captivated readers, that Arthur Rackham, the pre-eminent British illustrator of the early 20th century, created a magnificent gift edition featuring 50 color plates and 20 marvelous black-and-white drawings. Long available only as a rare antique edition costing hundreds of dollars, it has now been beautifully reissued in this sumptuous edition that captures all the beauty and enchantment of the original. You and your children will be enraptured by this magical tale of the infant Peter Pan and his adventures with the fairies and animals that dwell in Kensington Gardens, highlighted by the 50 mesmerizing watercolor plates of Arthur Rackham. Ages 8 and up. 123pp.
