Peter Pan

It may be a safe bet to say everyone has a favorite Peter Pan quote.  Whether they realize it or not is perhaps up for discussion.  From “second star to the right, and straight on ’till morning” which my own family has used as a quip when asked if we have directions for where we are going, to “All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust,” Peter Pan, and Pixie Dust references, pop up more often than one might expect.

Certainly we all seem aware, “All children, except one, grow up.”   And there are some adults who have started to understand why that one did not want to grow up.

While some are aware of just one Peter Pan novel by J.M. Barrie, it was in fact part of a series of stories featuring characters and a fantastical environment that captured the imaginations of multiple generations, generating not only movies and television shows, but also further books inspired by Peter, Wendy, the Lost Boys and Neverland itself.
