Monday Review: Walt Disney’s Peter Pan – Todd Strasser, José Cardona and Fred Marvin

I have had this book for a very long time, since I was a child. My parent’s got this Disney Store Edition for me when it was still around, probably around the time the VHS came out with special edition Lithographs (which I also have)!

Peter Pan is about a boy, Peter, who never grows old because he lives in a magical place called Never Land. One night his shadow leaves and Peter tracks it to the Darling’s in London.

Wendy Darling the oldest of the three siblings, sews Peter’s shadow back on and in return, he takes her and her two brothers;John and Micheal, to Neverland through the means of flying.

In order to fly, they must have faith, trust and Pixie Dust from Peter’s companion, Tinker Bell. Once they get the hang of flying, off they go!

How does one get to Neverland you might ask, aside from flying? Well, you simply take the second star to the right and straight on ’til morning!

When they arrive they meet many people, from The Lost Boys and mermaids, to the Natives and pirates!

One of the Pirate’s is Captain Hook, who will do anything in his power to destroy Peter! But the Captain must be wary, his worst fear, the ticking crocodile is never far behind!

What will happen to the Darlings?

Will they go back home or stay in Never Land?

Will Captain Hook defeat Peter?
