Straight On Till Morning

Straight On Till Morning


What if Wendy went to Never Land with Captain Hook?

Sixteen-year-old Wendy Darling wishes for a more exciting life. So when an opportunity to travel to Never Land on a pirate ship presents itself, Wendy makes a deal with the devil. But Never Land isn't quite the place she imagined it would be, and a little pixie named Tinker Bell seems less than friendly.

Then Captain Hook reveals some evil plans for Never Land, and it's suddenly up to Wendy and Tinker Bell to save Peter Pan and his world.

Our Review

Straight on Till Morning is a fantastic retelling of Peter Pan from the point of view of Wendy.

It begins with Tinkerbell and Peter looking for his shadow and Tinkerbell failing to mention that he left his shadow in London.

Meanwhile in London Wendy wonders why many years on Peter Pan hasn’t been back for his shadow. She is now sixteen and whilst John and Michael have moved on from Tales of Never Land, she continues to tell tales about it.

When the Darling’s discover that she is still writing about Never Land they decide to send her away to Ireland and that is when she decides to bargain with Hook for passage to Never Land. In exchange she gives him Peter Pan’s shadow but in doing so endangers the very existence of Never Land.

I liked that Wendy and Tinkerbell were developed more fully in this book and there was a definite feminist feel to the book. Wendy is not just defined as a timid, mothering type with limited character.

“It was funny she had finally come to Never Land – but for entirely different reasons now. Not because she was a girl who wanted to take care of others and find a place for herself; because she was a human who wanted adventures and quests and a reason for getting up in the morning and a purpose in life. To escape the role and future others wanted for her.

An enjoyable read.
