Personally, I liked the book a whole lot more than the movie, because the book reminded us that children will be children, and sometimes they're a little heartless, because they don't know any better.

I have seen the film and three versions of it in plays, but I never had the chance to read the book. To be honest the Disney film kept it really to the book! I liked the book and I can see why children have loved it for years! And just like the city of Barrie. The author J, Barrie, did a awesome job creating a great story.

"Based upon Sir James M. Barrie's 1904 play about the boy who refuses to grow up, the film begins in the London nursery of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, where three children are visited by Peter Pan. With the help of his tiny friend, the fairy Tinkerbell, Peter takes the three children on a magical flight to Never Land. This enchanted island is home to Peter, Tink, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and her Native American nation, and the scheming Captain Hook who is as intent on defeating Peter Pan as he is from escaping the tick-tocking crocodile that once ate a hand of his that Peter Pan cut off--and loved the taste of so much. " David Mullich

"The adventures of Peter Pan, the boy who wouldn't grow up, and the children who accompany him to Never-Never land." (Novelist Review)

Never say goodbye, because goddbye means going away, and going away means forgetting.

All children, except one, grow up.

"So Pan," said Hook at last, "this is all your doing."

"Aye, James Hook," came the stern answer. "it is all my doing."

"Proud and insolent youth," said Hook, "prepare to meet thy doom."
Old and sinister man," Peter answered have at thee."
