More about “Lit for Little Hands: Peter Pan”
“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”

Filled with interactive wheels and pull-tabs, and lavishly illustrated, Lit for Little Hands: Peter Pan is an unprecedented kid’s introduction to J. M. Barrie’s beloved classic novel.

Gorgeous and whimsical illustrations transport the reader to Neverland, while tons of interactive elements invite kids to help Peter catch his shadow, battle swashbuckling pirates, and, of course, fly! Fans of the novel will be delighted by the book’s attention to detail and clever use of original text and dialogue.
