Chapter 1 ~ Peter Breaks Through Summary
The Darlings are a happy family. They have three children: Wendy, John, and Michael. Mr. Darling’s finances are stretched thin with three children; however, he wants them to be a proper family. Since all proper families have a nanny, he must have one as well, so Mr. Darling gets a Newfoundland dog to act as a nanny.
Mrs. Darling has a special dimple-like area next to her mouth “a kiss” which no one is allowed to touch. This “kiss” is a bit of her youth she keeps all to herself.
At night, Mrs. Darling goes into the nursery where her children are sleeping to organize her children’s dreams. She moves the bad thoughts to the bottom of their minds, and moves the pleasant thoughts up to the top. When she does this, Mrs. Darling notices all her children have a thought about a young boy named Peter. Vaguely, Mrs. Darling remembers a Peter from her childhood memories, but thinks he must be an adult by now.
One day, Mrs. Darling finds leaves on the nursery floor. Wendy tells her mother that Peter must have left them. The next night, Mrs. Darling falls asleep in the nursery. Peter arrives and notices Mrs. Darling’s “kiss.” Mrs. Darling is surprised to see that this is the same Peter from her youth, and he still has all his baby teeth.
