“You know that place between sleeping and awake, that place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always think of you.” — J.M. Barrie
I just ordered a beautiful edition of Peter Pan ! I have a few other books from this classics series, and they are all gorgeous, and I had been looking for a nice edition of Peter Pan, so I was so happy to find this. Peter Pan is my favorite book and character in children’s literature. I can’t wait for it to get here!
Actually, when I was really young, there was this enchanting vintage Peter Pan book in the young adult’s section, and even though I was just 5, I found it and checked it out every single week. It had a beautiful cloth cover, magical illustrations, and it smelled like lovely antiques. I remember it so well. I began searching for the same edition a year or two back, but have so far had no luck. I even contacted our old library three states away and asked for the information on the book and described it to them. They said they didn’t have it, but I went on their online catalog and searched around and found some different information on older editions of Peter Pan that they have. I think I have the right information now, but I can’t find the book anywhere in-person or on the internet. It makes me kind of sad…I would love to have that particular book again.
