The Lovereading4Kids comment
The magical idea of never growing up lies at the heart of the story of Peter Pan. When Peter Pan flies in at the bedroom window of the three Darling children one starry night he leads them off flying over rooftops and, to the cry “Second to the right and straight on till morning”, off to Neverland. Here they meet the Lost Boys, the mermaids, the cheeky Tinkerball and, above all, the deadly captain Hook and his pirates. Adventure follows adventure before the three darling children are returned safely home and back to bed. But they never forget Peter Pan and nor will readers who will also love the magic he leads them to.

Come Away! Come Away! The Darling children are tucked up in bed when Peter Pan bursts in to their nursery. Peter and his mischievous fairy Tinker Bell entice Wendy and her brothers to fly away with them to a magical world called Neverland.

Second to the right and straight on till morning of course...

Intensely moving as well as enchanting in its evocation of childhood, the heartlessness of youth and parental grief as children grow older. - Daily Telegraph
