Fiction Fridays: Disney's Peter Pan

Walt Disney's Peter Pan
Disney Enterprises, Inc, 2005 (Funtastic)

There once was a house in London where a family named Darling lived. There were Mr and Mrs Darling and their three children, Wendy, John and Michael. Watching over the children was Nana, the nursemaid, who also happened to be a dog. It was to this house that a most interesting visitor came on one magical starry night. His name was Peter Pan.

A. borrowed this book from the school library last week and has loved it. It's a large format book in the classic Disney style, retold in simple language and with magical illustrations from the animated film. 

It's not the "real" Peter Pan (which I do have a lovely edition of), but the kids love it.

Their grandmother read this to them on the weekend and both girls were transfixed, loving the story and the illustrations.

I do remember as a child being similarly enchanted by these beautiful Disney books, with their gorgeous pictures.

This one is a prized loan at the school library, and A. was pleased as punch because she had coveted it this week and managed to get it.

  1. I remember the non-cartoon movie being played on Saturday night telly with (I think) Mia Farrow playing Peter? I absolutely loved it and so wanted to fly....

    Also recently liked 'Neverland' starring the brilliant Mr J Depp.

    1. I don't think I ever saw that one, though I did show my kids Hook on the weekend, which they enjoyed but it still wasn't quite the same. I'll have to get hold of the Disney movie if I can.
