Starred review. ...the story of Peter Pan benefits greatly from Tatar's extensive contextualizing as well as the supplemental material she includes. Of this, much is rare, and it is a treat... Bibliophiles and casual readers alike, and of course all who love Peter Pan or are fascinated by his creator, will want this gem. Recommended.
