Not every story engaged me (including some surprisingly long ones), but several were very charming if not actually recognizable. Save the best for last with 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens' which was the first incarnation of the boy who would not grow up. I particularly enjoyed there how all babies start out as birds and are as such a little "wild" at first. ( )
