I have recently read ‘Peter Pan and Wendy’. It is the story everybody knows that Peter Pan visits the bedroom of Wendy and her two brothers and then they fly to Neverland and fight with Hook the captain of Pirates. It is actually published by following the story of ‘Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens’ and also the Play script ‘Peter Pan (The Boy Who wouldn’t Grow Up)’. Of course I knew the story but when I saw the book in library I thought “Hum, I have never actually read it. How much do I know about the characters?” so I borrowed the book.
Now I have finished reading the story and can tell you I discovered several new factors about the story. The biggest surprise was Peter Pan’s age. Okay, he is a boy and also old, because he never grows up and lives forever, which means he is very old. But do you know how old he was when he left his parents’ house? He says in the story “Wendy, I ran away the day I was born”.(+o+)(=ﾟωﾟ)ﾉ😵! It means he is not even 1day old!! Even in the story of ‘Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens’ he was 7 DAYS OLD!! I don’t know why but the author J. M. Barrie changed when Peter decided to leeve his parents’ home but one thing I can tell you is that he is not even a toddler. He is a newborn baby. Realistically he cannot speak or even stand up?! OK, it is a fictious story so anything is possible.
Anyway, after he left his parents he started living in Kensington Gardens. When I had time in central London I suddenly wanted to see where Peter Pan spent time so I visited Kensington Gardens.
