Peter Pan, the boy who would not grow up. The well-known story depicts how Peter ? using happy thoughts and Tinker Bell's magic fairy dust ? teaches the Darling children to fly and brings them to Neverland so that they can stay young forever. Wendy, John, and Michael Darling have exciting adventures with Peter, his loyal band of Lost Boys, and the island's Indian tribe. It all culminates in a climactic battle against Captain James Hook, the notorious pirate whose right hand was cut off by Peter and fed to a crocodile long ago. After Hook is defeated once and for all, the Darling children return home to grow up and their family adopts the Lost Boys. Only Peter Pan remains in Neverland with Tink in order to continue his carefree existence as the personification of youth.
