Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

    In the fantasy, Peter Pan takes place in London with a young lady named Wendy Darling who lives in a nursery with her brothers, John and Michael. Wendy enjoys telling stories about Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White and especially about a boy who can fly name Peter Pan. The author, J. M. Barrie based the book from his mother who faced the same way that Wendy is living. The boy came in the nursery with a tinkling sprite, Tinker Bell. He invites Wendy to Neverland to be his “mother”.  The phrase that Peter says in the book is where he lives: "Second to the right and then straight on till morning". The conflict of the book is that Peter Pan must defeat his arch nemesis, Captain James Hook. The children arrive to the enchanted world with Indian Tribes and realistic mermaids with some Lost Boys of Kensington Gardens. I thought the book was fascinating because the story is based on the author's mom childhood.
