very child knows about Neverland. It’s a magical island, with colourful coral reefs, beautiful mermaids and fierce pirates. Neverland is the home of Peter Pan, a boy who never grows up. In London, there lived a family called the Darlings. They had three children – Wendy, John and Michael. One night, while their parents were out, Wendy woke up to find a strange boy sitting nearby. It was Peter Pan. — Hello, — he said, — what is your name?
— Wendy Darling, — she replied, — and who are you? — Peter Pan. Peter told Wendy all about Neverland, where he lived with the lost boys and the fairy Tinker Bell. They had many exciting adventures in Neverland but they didn’t have a mum or dad to tell them stories at bedtime. I know lots of fairy tales! — exclaimed Wendy. — Let’s fly together! Wendy agreed on one condition — she wanted to take her brothers to Never-
land too. Peter sprinkled them all with fairy dust and soon they could fly. Peter Pan and his new friends flew the whole night. Finally, they reached Neverland where the lost boys were waiting to welcome them. — This is Wendy, — Peter told them. — She’ll be our mum! The children were very happy and
invited Wendy and her brothers to come into their underground home. Wendy became a mum to all the boys; she darned their socks, cooked their meals, told them stories and made sure they were in bed by seven oâ€™clock each night. On the same island, there lived some pirates led by Captain Hook, Peterâ€™s enemy. The pirates hated the lost boys and always
tried to lure them into traps. One day, the pirates left a huge cake with cream for the children. They hoped that the children would eat too much and all get stomach-aches. In the evenings, Peter and the lost boys liked to go exploring near the mermaidsâ€™ lagoon. The pirates would creep up and try to attack the children, but Wendy was on the look-out for them, so the piratesâ€™ plans failed. Soon, Wendy, John and Michael started to miss their mum and decided it was time for them to go home.

The pirates have caught your friends! Peter immediately flew to rescue them. Having landed on Hook’s ship without being seen, he freed Wendy and then shouted, — Fight with me, Captain Hook!
