Peter and Wendy
- Peter Breaks Through
- Of course they lived at 14, and until Wendy came her mother was the chief one. She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes,…
- The Shadow
- She returned to the nursery, and found Nana with something in her mouth, which proved to be the boy’s shadow. As he leapt at the window Nana had closed it quickly, too late to catch him, but his…
- Come Away, Come Away!
- There was another light in the room now, a thousand times brighter than the night-lights, and in the time we have taken to say this, it had been in all the drawers in the nursery, looking for…
- The Flight
- That, Peter had told Wendy, was the way to the Neverland; but even birds, carrying maps and consulting them at windy corners, could not have sighted it with these instructions. Peter, you see, just…
- The Island Come True
- In his absence things are usually quiet on the island. The fairies take an hour longer in the morning, the beasts attend to their young, the redskins feed heavily for six days and nights, and when…
- The Little House
- “You are too late,” he cried proudly, “I have shot the Wendy. Peter will be so pleased with me.”
- The Home Under the Ground
- But you simply must fit, and Peter measures you for your tree as carefully as for a suit of clothes: the only difference being that the clothes are made to fit you, while you have to be made to fit…
- The Mermaid’s Lagoon
- The children often spent long summer days on this lagoon, swimming or floating most of the time, playing the mermaid games in the water, and so forth. You must not think from this that the mermaids…
- The Never Bird
- Steadily the waters rose till they were nibbling at his feet; and to pass the time until they made their final gulp, he watched the only thing on the lagoon. He thought it was a piece of floating…
- The Happy Home
- They called Peter the Great White Father, prostrating themselves before him; and he liked this tremendously, so that it was not really good for him.
- Wendy’s Story
- “I had rather he had been a lady,” Curly said.
- The Children Are Carried Off
- By all the unwritten laws of savage warfare it is always the redskin who attacks, and with the wiliness of his race he does it just before the dawn, at which time he knows the courage of the whites…
- Do You Believe in Fairies?
- A different treatment was accorded to Wendy, who came last. With ironical politeness Hook raised his hat to her, and, offering her his arm, escorted her to the spot where the others were being…
- The Pirate Ship
- She was wrapped in the blanket of night, through which no sound from her could have reached the shore. There was little sound, and none agreeable save the whir of the ship’s sewing machine at which…
- “Hook or Me This Time”
- Without giving a thought to what might be the feelings of a fellow-creature this abruptly deprived of its closest companion, Peter began to consider how he could turn the catastrophe to his own use;…
- The Return Home
- It need not be said who was the captain. Nibs and John were first and second mate. There was a woman aboard. The rest were tars before the mast, and lived in the fo’c’sle. Peter had already…
- When Wendy Grew Up
- Of course Mrs. Darling said at once that she would have them; but Mr. Darling was curiously depressed, and they saw that he considered six a rather large number.
- Hook (DVD)
Peter Pan grew up and became a corporate raider with two kids. If this were a true extension of Peter Pan, he probably has two mistresses on the side and he might be a serial killer. But instead he’s just a poor imitation of a business geek.
- Peter and Wendy (paperback)
This is a romantically sarcastic story that is funny and touching, and insightful to boot. I highly recommend it. (J. M. Barrie)
- Do you believe in cronies?
“Nobody should go broke just because they get sick. They should go broke paying higher premiums to my cronies.”
