Yes, we're aware of that, and have made arrangements with GOSH. In the front of our book, you'll note, we state, "Text of Peter and Wendy used with permission of Great Ormond Street Hospital, London".

What's holding up availability in the UK & EU is copyright on F. D. Bedford's illustrations in Peter and Wendy. He died 58 years ago, and copyright in the UK (and thus now EU) and some other countries is life +70 yrs. (U.S. copyright laws only take into account the death date of the author for works published after 1978, and Canada is life + 50). We have been in contact with the copyright holder and have made arrangements, and are just waiting for final approval.
