Reason for Reading: I saw it on Project Gutenberg.
Finished In: Months. It was hard to read on-screen. I wound up getting it out of the library so I could finish it.
Copyright Date: The introduction and "student guide" are copyright 2007. The book originally came out in 1911.
Cover: A fairy drinking from a teacup. A young boy in green looks on in horror, but is also holding the cup for her.
First line: "All children, except one, grow up."
Best part: This book is a classic for a reason. The language is gorgeous and it's funny and heartbreaking.
Worst part: I wanted it to have illustrations, but it seems an illustrated unabridged version is hard to find.
Imaginary Theme Song: Theme song to Finding Neverland.
Recommended for: Everyone.

This book was really beautiful. It's kind of amazing I've never read it before, especially since I've seen at least three movie versions of it.
