“All children, except one, grow up”.

Peter Pan

J.M. Barrie's classic tale of Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up. When Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow he teaches Wendy, John and Michael how to fly with him back to the island of Neverland. There they embark on an 'awfully big adventure.'

The Inconsiderate Waiter

In the world of the Victorian Club, it does not do for a gentleman to be seen to take an interest in any member of the working class. How dreadfully inconvenient then, when the narrator's waiter begins to display alarming tendencies towards having a personality, and feelings of his own.

The last thing any respectable gentleman should do is permit himself to be drawn into this dubious world...let alone entertain emotions such as interest or empathy for a member of the lower class.

    What a delightful recording! I loved listening to this recording. I had never read J M Barrie's Peter Pan - I'd seen the movies, but not the original. In the hands of one of our very best narrators the story comes alive in a whole new way. I loved the short passage written by Alison Larkin talking about the link between her own adoption and Peter Pan's. And the the short story at the end was so funny and interesting. I hadn't heard it before! What a terrific portrait of the British class system as it used to be! This audiobook is a gem.
