I’m so excited that I’ve read some classics lately. This was a really quick read! I was not expecting it to be so short.
With that being said, I expected a lot more from this one! I don’t know if I would have felt different if I read this as a child. I just felt like we were missing a lot to the plot. Things happen but a lot doesn’t. This is an instance that I would have liked more pages.
Oh Peter! How I feel so sad for him. He is so scared of growing up that he misses out on so much. Seriously, your childhood is VITAL to everything you will ever do. He didn’t think his mother wanted him and I think it kind of breaks him.
On the flip side, we see Mrs. Darling’s unconditional love for her children. Always leaving the window open and just dreaming to hold her babies. Oh, the last bit of this book is kind of heartbreaking!
Okay, I had a lot of issues with Mr. Darling’s story line. What. On. Earth!! HUH?! I just didn’t understand that decision!
Overall, this is a good children’s classic with a great message. We all need mothers, especially the ones who will leave the window open! I just didn’t like some of the lack of plot. I needed more Hook and that whole story line. I really disliked the whole kennel issue with Mr. Darling too.
