Peter Pan Chapter 11 Wendy’s Story Summary

Wendy tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Darling who have three children: Wendy, John, and Michael. The parents are very upset because their children have left. They leave the window open at night hoping the children will return. The children don’t return until they are grown up. 

This is when Wendy decides that she, John, and Michael must return home that very night. Peter is hurt by this but acts as if he is not. The Lost Boys are all sad. Wendy tells them they can come with her. She is sure her parents will adopt them. The Lost Boys agree, but Peter says he will stay behind.

Peter arranges for the Native Americans to walk the group through the woods to the sea. At that point, Wendy will fly with them back to the Darling’s house.

Just as the group is about to leave, they hear a terrible fight taking place between the pirates and the Native Americans.
