Peter Pan and Wendy – by J.M Barrie

Peter Pan and Wendy

Below is a summary from Goodreads:

Meet Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up; Tinkerbell, the mischievous fairy; the Lost Boys; and the villainous Captain Hook. A swashbuckling children’s adventure classic for generations, this edition has beautiful illustrations by beloved illustrator Shirley Hughes.

This was a cute little book with really nice illustrations to look at every few pages or so.

As I’ve seen the Disney film Peter Pan a few times before, that’s all I could imagine Peter, the Lost Boys, Wendy and the other to look like. About halfway through I imagined the illustrations as the characters instead except Wendy.

This book is just a little darker than the Disney film showed us all it to be as there is death – Peter creates much of it himself – but it is sort of skirted around.

“They little dreamed that the unprincipled Hook would ambush them about 7 p.m. The consequence was, that they nearly all perished.”

Was still a good book to zoom through though.
