Chapter 2 The Shadow
Chapter 2 The Shadow Summary
Mrs. Darling shouts when she sees Peter Pan in the nursery. This brings the Newfoundland Nana running into the room. Peter heads for the window but not before Nana traps his shadow. Mrs. Darling folds up the shadow and places it inside a drawer. She decides not to tell her husband about this.
The next Friday, Mr. and Mrs. Darling are getting ready to go to a party down the street. Mr. Darling comes into the nursery to get Mrs. Darling to help him with his tie. The group dances around until Nana bumps into Mr. Darling and get hair on his pants.
Nana decides it is time for Michael to take his medicine. Michael complains. Wendy comes up with the idea that Mr. Darling and Michael can take their medicine at the same time. This is when Mr. Darling, who thinks he has cleverly hidden his medicine, finds out that Wendy knows where it is. Michael and Mr. Darling measure out their spoonfuls. Michael takes his medicine, but Mr. Darling hides his behind his back. When he is found out, Mr. Darling pours his medicine into Nana’s bowl. Nana comes in and drinks some water discovering what Mr. Darling has done.
In his embarrassment, Mr. Darling ties up Nana in the backyard, before heading to the party. Nana barks but Mr. Darling won’t change his mind. As soon as Mr. and Mrs. Darling head off to the party, the stars tell Peter Pan it is safe to go inside the Darling’s house.
