Praise

“The boastful, unstable Toad, the hospitable Water Rat, the shy, wise, childlike Badger, and the Mole with his pleasant habit of brave boyish impulse, are types of that deeper humanity which sways us all.”—Vanity Fair, on The Wind in the Willows
 
“Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down as a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh.”—Virginia Woolf, on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass
 
“Barrie wrote his fantasy of childhood, added another figure to our enduring literature, and thereby undoubtedly made one of the boldest bids for immortality of any writer. . . . [Peter Pan] is a masterpiece.”—J. B. Priestley, on Peter Pan
 
“I do not say there is no character as well-drawn in Shakespeare [as D’Artagnan]. I do say there is none that I love so wholly.”—Robert Louis Stevenson, on The Three Musketeers
