Chapter 3 Come Away Come Away Summary


Peter Pan comes in through the nursery window with a fairy named Tinker Bell. Tinker Bell finds Peter’s shadow in the chest. Peter is trying to get the shadow to stick back on with soap. When this doesn’t work, Peter begins to cry. The crying wakes Wendy up.

Wendy sews Peter’s shadow back on. When reattached, Peter congratulates himself for getting the job done. Wendy is upset that Peter is taking the credit for her work, so she goes back to bed. This is when Peter tells her that because she is a girl, she is special. Wendy offers to give Peter a kiss, but he only holds out his hand. Not knowing what to do, Wendy gives Peter a thimble. In return, Peter gives Wendy and acorn button. Wendy puts the button on a string and places it around her neck.

Peter explains to Wendy about how fairies are born and die. All of a sudden, Peter realizes he has trapped Tinker Bell in the drawer and lets her out. Wendy is delighted to see a fairy, but Peter tells Wendy that Tinker Bell is just an ordinary fairy. Tinker Bell is jealous of Wendy and pulls her hair. Peter continues his tale. Then he hints that the Lost Boys need a mother figure. This is when Wendy gives Peter a real kiss.

Peter says he has been coming to the window for years to hear stories. Wendy tells Peter the story of Cinderella. This is when Peter asks Wendy if she will come to Neverland and tell stories to the Lost Boys. Wendy asks is John and Michael can come along.

A frantic, barking Nana finally breaks free of her chain and runs down the street to find the Darling parents. Peter teaches the Darling children how to fly. They fly out the nursery window toward Neverland just as the Darling parents enter the empty nursery.
