Peter and Wendy and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens
J. M. Barrie's classic play about the boy who wouldn't grow up first debuted on stage in London in 1904. Based on a character Barrie introduced in his 1902 novel "The Little White Bird", Peter Pan and his Lost Boys became an instant success after they first appeared. Barrie continued to make changes to his now iconic tale and adapted the play into the novel "Peter and Wendy", published in 1911. This is the Peter Pan the world has become so familiar with and has inspired countless adaptations for both the stage and screen. It is the iconic story of how Peter meets Wendy, a normal girl who agrees to accompany Peter back to his home in Neverland so that she can become a mother to his gang, the Lost Boys. Along with her brothers, John and Michael, Wendy meets the fairy Tinkerbell, the rowdy Lost Boys who refuse to grow up, and the fearsome Captain Hook. Included here with Barrie's novel of perpetual childhood are the first chapters of Peter's story from "The Little White Bird", later published as the book "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens". This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

小飛俠【文字.有聲版】
《英文經典書系》【文字.有聲版】旨在打造一個在閱讀經典名著的同時,還能親耳聆聽道地英文讀音的友善環境。讓讀者在欣賞大師的精彩文章之餘,還能一舉兩得,以耳朵來品嘗不同於單純文字的滋味。如果您的英文已達中級以上程度,與其讀些簡化的名著改寫版本,不如精讀原汁原味的原典吧,這才是貨真價實的文藝賞析。 《小飛俠》(Peter Pan)是蘇格蘭小說家及劇作家詹姆斯.馬修.巴利(James Matthew Barrie)所創作的長篇小說,該故事原本為舞臺劇,作者將劇本小說化,於1911年首次在英美出版。 小說講述一個會飛的淘氣小男孩彼得.潘和他在夢幻島(the Neverland)的冒險故事,同他相伴的還有溫蒂·達令(Wendy Darling)及她的兩個弟弟、精靈婷科·貝爾(Tinker Bell,或譯奇妙仙子)、迷失少年們(Lost Boys),以霍克船長(Captain Hook)為首的一群海盜是他們最大的威脅。 《小飛俠》寫的是達林先生家裡的三個小孩,經受不住由空中飛來的神秘野孩子彼得.潘的誘惑,很快也學會了飛行,趁父母不在,連夜飛出窗去,飛向奇異的「夢幻島」。這島上既有兇猛的野獸,又有原始部落中的「紅人」,還有可怕的海盜,當然還有仙女和美人魚,總之,經常出現在兒童夢中和幻想中的一切,這裡都有;因此也就有與猛獸搏鬥的打獵,有紅人與海盜之間或孩子們與海盜之間的真正的戰爭。 孩子們脫離了成人,無拘無束,自由自在,在彼得.潘的率領下,自己處理一切事務,盡情玩耍,也歷經了各種危險。正如作者在書中所說:「在他們看來,沒有媽媽照樣可以過得很愉快。只有當媽媽的才認為,孩子離開了媽媽便不能生活。」可是後來,這些離家出走的孩子——尤其是其中的大姐姐溫迪,開始想媽媽了,在她的動員下,孩子們告別了給他們帶來過無限歡樂的「夢幻島」,飛回了家中。 後來他們都長成了大人。只有彼得.潘永不長大,也永不回家,他老在外面飛來飛去,把一代又一代的孩子帶離家庭,讓他們到「夢幻島」上去享受自由自在的童年歡樂。作品的最後一句是這樣寫的:「只要孩子們是歡樂的、天真的、無憂無慮的,他們就可以飛向夢幻島去。」

Peter Pan
Peter Pan is a fictional character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie. A free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the mythical island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, interacting with fairies, pirates, mermaids, Native Americans, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland. Peter Pan has become a cultural icon symbolizing youthful innocence and escapism. In addition to two distinct works by Barrie, The Little White Bird (1902, with chapters 13-18 published in Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens in 1906), and the West End stage play Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904, which expanded into the 1911 novel Peter and Wendy), the character has been featured in a variety of media and merchandise, both adapting and expanding on Barrie's works. These include the 1924 silent film, 1953 Disney animated film, a 2003 dramatic/live-action film, a television series and many other works.

Peter Pan
All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, "Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!" This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end. Of course they lived at 14, and until Wendy came her mother was the chief one. She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes, one within the other, that come from the puzzling East, however many you discover there is always one more; and her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner. The way Mr. Darling won her was this: the many gentlemen who had been boys when she was a girl discovered simultaneously that they loved her, and they all ran to her house to propose to her except Mr. Darling, who took a cab and nipped in first, and so he got her. He got all of her, except the innermost box and the kiss. He never knew about the box, and in time he gave up trying for the kiss. Wendy thought Napoleon could have got it, but I can picture him trying, and then going off in a passion, slamming the door. Mr. Darling used to boast to Wendy that her mother not only loved him but respected him. He was one of those deep ones who know about stocks and shares. Of course no one really knows, but he quite seemed to know, and he often said stocks were up and shares were down in a way that would have made any woman respect him.
