Chapter 4 The Flight Summary


Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael, and Tinker Bell fly toward Neverland for many days. Peter helps them get food from the birds. Often Peter goes off on adventures of his own, coming back with mermaid fins stuck to him. The Darling children think he may completely forget all about them. The children easily fly as long as they are awake, but as soon as they fall asleep they begin to fall. Peter laughing saves them at the last second. 

They approach Neverland as the sun is setting. The island looks the way it often does in the children’s dreams, a frightening place at dusk.

Peter tells the Darlings about the pirates. He once cut off Captain Hook’s hand in a battle, so they are bitter enemies. When the pirates spot the children flying overhead, they pull out their big gun which they have named Big Tom. Because Tinker Bell’s light makes the group an easy target for the pirates, she hides in John’s hat. Wendy ends up carrying her.

The pirates fire at the group. They are not directly hit but scattered in all directions. This is when a jealous Tinker Bell is alone with Wendy. She thinks of a plan to get rid of Wendy.
