Peter Pan

I'm an enormous fan of the live action Peter Pan film, in particular. Jason Isaacs is a wonderful Father/Hook, Richard Briers is a perfect Smee, Mrs Darling (Olivia Williams) really does have a kiss in the corner of her mouth, and the right-on-the-brink-of-adolescent cast is just right.

But I hadn't read Peter Pan before, so I sat down this week and found myself utterly enchanted. The story line is already familiar, but the style is such a surprise. I plan to finish it this weekend and will try to select a quotation or two for you.

Have you read the novel (or the play)? What did you think of it?


  1. Read and taught the play. Enjoyed it so very much.

  2. Hello Casie,

    I'm loving your blog! I just awarded it with a Liebster Blog Award. Scoot on over to my blog and learn all about it.
