Book Review: Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

Ah, it's time to review a classic and not just any classic, this is one of my favorites childhood's favorites and I'm pretty sure one of many kid's favorite story.  Let's do this?

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie


During a starry night, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell go into a house and lead three Darling children over the rooftops of London and away to Neverland.  What's Neverland?  Neverland is the island where lost boys play, mermaids splash and fairies make mischief.  But also in Neverland you will find a villainous-looking gang of pirates, led by Captain James Hook, who is as terrifying as it can get.

Magic and excitement are in the air, but if Captain Hook has his way, someone will be walking his plank and swimming with the crocodiles and Peter Pan makes sure that doesn't happen, but will he always be able to make sure that doesn't happen?

Are all the boys happy in Neverland?  Are the three Darling children happy there or do they want to go back to their house in London?  One thing with Neverland is the longer you stay there the less you remember of your old life and that's something the three Darling's are not sure they want...will Peter let them leave or will he do everything for them to stay?

This book?  Ah, it was sooooo good to re read an old children's classic and I'm planning on doing more of these this year.  I loved, loved the writing, of course and my rating?  5 out of 5 stars for sure.  I read this book with little 6 year old daughter and she fell in love with it and that just made my heart full and totally happy.  Please read even if you know the story and have read it as a kid, there is nothing like nostalgia, trust me.
