In the large town of Edwardian London a young girl, Wendy Darling perches herself on the end of a bed and begins to read to her two younger brothers. Tales of swordplay, swashbuckling and the fearsome Captain Hook entice the young children. However, little to their knowledge they are to become heroes of an even greater story. The tale begins with an exciting young boy named Peter Pan who flies through their window to sweep them into a world of adventure. The children are lead over the moonlit rooftops and through a galaxy of stars into a world filled with lush jungles, exciting characters and twisted tales. It was called NEVERLAND.
- As readers we are guided though a literary experience, which evokes emotions and provokes thought, we form personal opinion’s and views throughout… it is the moment we reflect upon what we have read that our understanding is cemented.
- Come and follow our journey through J.M Barrie’s infamous Peter Pan and you can observe our understanding of the story. As Jackson (1981, p 41) states, “The quest for literature is the moment which precedes it”.
