  • Chapter one

  • The Nursery

  • Wendy, John and Michael Darling live in a lovely house in London. They have got a big,

  • sunny nursery. There are colourful pictures and a big clock on the wall. There are toys

  • here and there. The Darlings are a happy family. Mr Darling and Mrs Darling love their children

  • very much. Wendy is the first child, John is the second and Michael is the third.

  • The children's nanny is called Nana and she is a big Newfoundland dog! Her kennel is in

  • the nursery and she is a wonderful nanny. She loves the children and the children love

  • her.

  • One evening Mr and Mrs Darling want to go to a dinner party. They have their best clothes

  • on.

  • 'Nana, it's time to put the children to bed,' says Mrs Darling.

  • Nana goes to the bathroom. She turns on the hot water for Michael's bath. She puts her

  • paw in the water to check the temperature. It's perfect!

  • 'I don't want to have a bath!' says little Michael.

  • But Nana is a firm nanny and Michael has his bath.

  • Then Nana gives the children their pyjamas. Now they are ready for bed.

  • Mrs Darling comes into the nursery and smiles. 'Good work, Nana! I see the children are ready

  • for bed.' Nana wags her big tail.

  • Suddenly there is a noise. Mrs Darling sees a young boy outside the nursery window. She

  • is very surprised. Nana barks and shuts the window quickly. The boy's shadow falls on

  • the floor. The young boy flies away. 'Who's there?' asks Mrs Darling. She opens the window

  • and looks outside, but she sees nothing. Then she sees the boy's shadow on the floor and

  • says, 'Poor boy, this is his shadow. Let's put it in the drawer.'

  • The children are in bed. Mr Darling takes Nana to the garden. Then he goes to the sitting

  • room and waits for Mrs Darling.

  • Mrs Darling sings to the children and kisses them. She is a perfect mother. Soon the three

  • children are sleeping. Mr and Mrs Darling go to their bedroom. They put on their coats

  • and go to the dinner party.

  • Chapter two

  • The Shadow

  • The children are sleeping and dreaming. Suddenly the window opens. A small ball of light enters

  • the nursery and flies around. It is a lovely fairy called Tinker Bell. She is looking for

  • something. After a moment a young boy enters the nursery and says, 'Tink, where are you?

  • Please find my shadow.'

  • Tinker Bell finds his shadow in the drawer and gives it to him. 'Now I can stick the

  • shadow to my feet with some soap,' he thinks. He tries and tries again, but he can't. He

  • is very confused and starts crying.

  • Wendy wakes up and sees the boy but she is not afraid. His clothes are made of leaves.

  • 'Little boy, why are you crying?' Wendy asks.

  • The boy takes off his cap and asks, 'What's your name?'

  • 'Wendy Moira Angela Darling. What's yours?'

  • 'Peter Pan.'

  • 'Is that all?'

  • 'Yes!' says Peter. Then he thinks, 'My name is very, very short.'

  • Wendy looks at his shadow and asks, 'Can I help you with your shadow?'

  • 'Yes, please!' says Peter.

  • Wendy gets her sewing basket and sews on Peter's shadow.

  • After a few minutes she says, 'Finished! Now you have your shadow again.'

  • Peter looks at the floor and sees his shadow. He is very happy and dances around the room.

  • 'Oh, Wendy, you are wonderful!' says Peter.

  • 'Do you really think so?' asks Wendy.

  • 'Yes,' says Peter.

  • Wendy smiles and gives Peter a kiss on the cheek.

  • 'Oh!' says Peter. 'How nice!'

  • 'How old are you, Peter?' asks Wendy.

  • 'I don't know, but I am young. I don't want to grow up. I always want to be a boy and

  • have fun.'

  • Peter looks around the room for his fairy. He hears a noise and looks in a drawer. Tinker

  • Bell flies out. Wendy is delighted to see a fairy, but Tinker Bell is afraid. She hides

  • behind the big clock.

  • 'Where do you live, Peter?' asks Wendy.

  • 'I live in Neverland with the Lost Boys,' says Peter.

  • 'Neverland? The Lost Boys? Who are they?' asks Wendy.

  • 'The Lost Boys haven't got a mother or father. They are alone in the world and they live

  • in Neverland. I am their Captain. In Neverland we fight the pirates. We also swim in the

  • lagoon with the beautiful mermaids. Fairies live in the trees in the forest. The fairies

  • are my friends,' says Peter.

  • 'Oh, what fun!' says Wendy.

  • 'I must go back now. I must tell the Lost Boys a story. They love stories,' says Peter.

  • 'Don't go away! I know a lot of stories,' says Wendy.

  • 'Then come with me, Wendy. You can tell us stories. We all want a mother. Please come,'

  • says Peter.

  • 'But I can't fly,' says Wendy.

  • 'I can teach you to fly,' says Peter.

  • 'Can you teach John and Michael to fly too?'

  • 'Yes, of course,' says Peter.

  • 'John! Michael! Wake up! This is Peter Pan. He's from Neverland. It's a beautiful place,'

  • says Wendy.

  • John and Michael are very surprised.

  • 'We can go there with him. But first we must learn to fly,' Wendy says.

  • Wendy, John and Michael are very excited. They try to fly but fall on the beds and on

  • the floor.

  • 'No, no,' says Peter. 'Here is some fairy dust.' He puts some fairy dust on their shoulders.

  • 'Now try again,' says Peter.

  • 'Look, I can fly!' says Wendy.

  • 'I can too,' says John.

  • 'Me too,' says little Michael.

  • 'Tink, show us the way to Neverland,' says Peter.

  • They follow Tinker Bell and fly out of the nursery window. In the garden Nana looks at

  • the sky and barks.

  • Mr and Mrs Darling return from the dinner party. They go into the nursery, but it is

  • empty!

  • CHAPTER THREE

  • The Neverland

  • Wendy, John and Michael fly over cities, towns, mountains, forests and seas.

  • Finally they see an island in the sea below them.

  • 'Look, that's Neverland,' says Peter.

  • 'Neverland!' say the children.

  • In Neverland the Lost Boys live in the forest in a secret underground home. There are six

  • Lost Boys: Slightly Soiled, Tootles, Nibs, Curly and the Twins. They are waiting for

  • Peter.

  • Suddenly they hear the voices of the pirates. Nibs is very brave. He goes out, hides behind

  • a tree and looks around him. He sees the horrible pirates. They are walking in the forest. They

  • are big and ugly. Their pirate ship is the Jolly Roger.

  • The pirates' captain is James Hook. He is a cruel pirate and a very bad man. He's got

  • black eyes, black hair and a black beard. He hates Peter Pan. He's only got one arm.

  • The other is a hook! In the past Peter Pan cut off Captain Hook's right arm during a

  • fight. A crocodile ate the arm. Now the crocodile follows Captain Hook everywhere because he

  • wants to eat him. The crocodile has an alarm clock in its stomach! Captain Hook can always

  • hear it.

  • 'I know the Lost Boys live in this forest. We must find them and Peter Pan!' says Captain

  • Hook.

  • 'Tick, tock, tick, tock!' Captain Hook hears the alarm clock.

  • 'Oh, no, the crocodile is coming to eat me!' says Captain Hook. He runs away and the pirates

  • follow him.

  • Soon some Indians arrive in the forest. They are looking for the pirates. The pirates are

  • their enemy. Tiger Lily is their leader. She is the beautiful daughter of the Indian chief.

  • She loves Peter Pan. Tinker Bell and Wendy love him too. The Indians go away and the

  • Lost Boys return to play in the forest.

  • Then Nibs looks at the sky and says, 'Look, there is a lovely white bird in the sky.'

  • 'Is it really a bird?' the Lost Boys ask.

  • Tinker Bell says, 'Yes, yes, it's a bird. It's a Wendy bird. You must shoot it!' Sometimes

  • Tink is a bad fairy. She knows it is Wendy, but she doesn't like her.

  • Nibs takes his bow and arrow and shoots Wendy. Poor Wendy falls to the ground. The Lost Boys

  • see Wendy and say, 'She's not a bird! She's a lovely girl.'

  • Peter flies down with John and Michael and asks, 'Where is Wendy?'

  • Tootles says, 'Here she is.'

  • Peter goes over to her and asks, 'Wendy, are you all right?' Wendy slowly opens her eyes

  • and smiles. 'Yes, but I'm very tired,' she says.

  • The Lost Boys are sorry. They decide to build her a little house.

  • When the house is ready Wendy says, 'What a lovely little house! Thank you.'

  • 'Can you be our mother now? Can you tell us bedtime stories before we go to bed?' asks

  • Nibs.

  • 'Of course,' says Wendy. 'Come in and I can tell you the story of Cinderella.'

  • They enter, sit down and listen to Wendy's story. It is a wonderful story.

  • Peter Pan is outside the house with his sword. He wants to protect Wendy and the Lost Boys.

  • CHAPTER FOUR

  • The Mermaid's Lagoon

  • One summer evening Peter, Wendy, John, Michael and the Lost Boys go to the Mermaid's Lagoon.

  • Beautiful mermaids live here and they are Peter's friends. They swim and play in the

  • blue lagoon. Then they sit on Marooner's Rock to comb their long hair. They sit in the sun

  • and laugh.

  • The children like the mermaids and John says, 'I want to catch one!' He tries, but the mermaid

  • jumps into the water.

  • Peter says, 'It is very difficult to catch a mermaid.'

  • Suddenly someone says, 'Look, the pirates are coming!'

  • A small boat with two pirates is coming to the lagoon. John, Michael and the Lost Boys

  • jump off the rock and swim away. But Wendy stays with Peter. They hide behind the rock.

  • Peter sees Tiger Lily. She is sitting in the small boat. Poor Tiger Lily is a prisoner

  • of the pirates.

  • 'Let's leave her on this rock. When the sea rises, she will die!' says Smee. The two pirates

  • laugh. It is already night and it is very dark.

  • Peter wants to save Tiger Lily and thinks of something intelligent. He imitates Captain

  • Hook's voice and says, 'Cut the ropes and let her go! Do as I say, you idiots! Let her

  • go!' The two pirates are amazed.

  • 'Can you hear Hook's voice?' asks Smee.

  • 'Yes, but what do we do?' asks Starkey.

  • 'We must obey him and cut the ropes,' says Smee.

  • They cut the ropes and Tiger Lily is free. She quickly jumps into the water and swims

  • away.

  • Captain Hook sees everything and he is furious.

  • 'That horrid Peter Pan! This time I must attack him,' he says.

  • He swims to the rock and fights with Peter. It is a long fight.

  • The Captain hurts Peter with his hook, but Peter fights courageously. At last, Peter

  • wins the fight and Hook swims back to the Jolly Roger. Peter is now alone on the rock

  • with Wendy.

  • 'The sea is rising and we are in great danger here. We must leave this rock,' says Peter.

  • 'Oh, Peter, I am very tired and I cannot swim or fly.'

  • He sees a big kite with a long tail. It is flying slowly over the lagoon. He takes the

  • tail of the kite and says, 'Wendy, hold on to this tail and fly away with the kite.'

  • Wendy flies away.

  • 'The sea is rising. I must fly away,' Peter thinks. When he gets home everyone is happy

  • to see him especially Wendy.

  • Chapter five

  • The Underground Home

  • The Underground Home is a secret place. No one knows where it is. It is a happy, warm

  • place. There is only one room with a big fireplace. Tinker Bell has her tiny room too.

  • Wendy is a perfect mother. She cooks and sews for everyone. She also tells beautiful bedtime

  • stories. The Lost Boys are happy because they finally have a mother. John and Michael are

  • happy because there is a new adventure every day.

  • Peter Pan is a perfect father. He brings home food and protects the family.

  • Wendy and Peter play with the children and laugh with them.

  • But one night something happens. Wendy tells the children this bedtime story:

  • 'In the big city of London there are two parents. They are very sad because they cannot find

  • their three children. Every night they leave the nursery window open. They wait and wait

  • for their children to return. But they don't return. Poor parents! They are very sad without

  • their children.'

  • 'Oh, Wendy, this is the story of our parents,' says John.

  • 'Yes, it is,' says Michael.

  • Peter listens and says, 'Sometimes parents forget their children and other children take

  • their place.'

  • Wendy is very surprised. 'Oh, no!' she says! 'Perhaps there are other children in our beds!

  • John, Michael we must go home!'

  • 'Do we really have to?' ask John and Michael.

  • 'Yes, we've got to return home.'

  • The Lost Boys are sad and say, 'Oh, Wendy, please don't leave us!'

  • 'Don't be sad. You can come and live with us in London,' says Wendy.

  • 'Oh, how wonderful!' the Lost Boys say. 'We can have a real family.' They jump up and

  • down with joy. They dance around the room.

  • But Peter is not happy. He is very serious and says, 'I'm not coming with you to London.

  • I don't want to grow up. I want to be a boy forever.'

  • Everyone says goodbye to Peter. Outside, the pirates are waiting for them! The children

  • come out of the underground home and the pirates capture them. Then they take them to the Jolly

  • Roger.

  • They don't make any noise. Peter doesn't know where they are.

  • He is sad without Wendy, John, Michael and the Lost Boys. He sits and thinks.

  • 'Tap, tap, tap!' There is someone at the door.

  • 'Who is it?' asks Peter.

  • He can hear the sound of little bells and opens the door. Tinker Bell flies in and says,

  • 'The pirates have got Wendy, John, Michael and the Lost Boys! They are in danger. Let's

  • help them!'

  • 'I must save them. Come Tink, let's go to the Jolly Roger! This time I must attack Hook!'

  • CHAPTER SIX

  • The Jolly Roger

  • There is a yellow moon in the night sky. The folly Roger is in the bay near Kidd's Creek.

  • The children are on the pirate ship. They are prisoners of Captain Hook and his cruel

  • pirates.

  • Captain Hook looks at them and says, 'This time it's Peter Pan or me! You idiots! Peter

  • Pan can't save you now.' Hook laughs and then calls Smee. 'Smee, get the plank ready!'

  • 'Yes sir!' says Smee.

  • 'Now listen to me,' says Hook. 'You must all walk the plank!'

  • 'Walk the plank?' asks John.

  • 'Yes! First you walk the plank and then you fall into the sea with the crocodile. It will

  • eat you! Ha, ha!' laughs Hook. 'But I can save two of you. I want two young pirates.

  • Who wants to be a pirate?'

  • The Lost Boys look at John. John looks at Michael and says, 'The life of a pirate is

  • exciting. I don't want to walk the plank. I don't want to be food for the crocodile.

  • Let's be pirates!' Michael looks at his brother. Then they look at Wendy. She doesn't like

  • their idea.

  • Captain Hook laughs and moves his hook in front of their faces.
