Chapter 14 The Pirate Ship Summary

Captain Hook paces the deck of his ship “The Jolly Roger.” His thoughts are all about good form. The reader learns that Hook was once a respected British gentleman. Hook also thinks about Snee. All children like Snee and Hook are disgruntled because children do not feel the same for him. Finally, he has had enough.

Hook tells the pirates to bring the boys up on deck. He plans to make them all walk the plank except two. Hook needs two boys for cabin boys. The Lost Boys tell Hook their mother would not want them to be pirates. Hook then turns to John and Michael. They tell Hook that they can not be pirates because they must stay loyal to the British Crown.

Since Hook is upset, he brings Wendy up to witness the event. Wendy shows her disgust at the dirty ship and Hook’s dirty clothes. When Hook sees this, he tells Wendy to say last words to the boys. She tells them, “I feel that I have a message to you from your real mothers and it is this: ‘We hope our sons will die like English gentlemen.'” Then the pirates tie Wendy to the mast.

Hook is about to make the boys walk the plank when he hears the ticking of the crocodile. Hook runs to hide.
