Peter Pan // Chapter 6 – The little house

All chapters here. Foolish Tootles was standing like a conqueror over Wendy’s body when the other boys sprang, armed, from their trees. “You are too late,” he cried proudly, “I have shot the Wendy.

Peter Pan // Chapter 5 – The island come true

All previous chapters here. Feeling that Peter was on his way back, the Neverland had again woke into life. We ought to use the pluperfect and say wakened, but woke is better and was always used by Peter. In his absence things are usually quiet on the island. The fairies take an hour longer in […]

She growled and sprang at the boy, who leapt lightly through the window. Again Mrs. Darling screamed, this time in distress for him, for she thought he was killed, and she […]

Peter Pan // Chapter 1 – Peter breaks through

All chapters here. All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked […]
