Flying to Neverland with Peter Pan
Comden, Betty.
Easy Picture Book COMDEN

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: Following Phyllis Newman's introduction about the song and its connection to her family and late husband, the lyricist Adolph Green, there's a small amount of prose from the musical that leads into the exact lyrics of each song. The story begins with "Never Never Land," which features Wendy and the other Darling children's first encounter with Peter Pan as he tells them about where he lives ("a place where dreams are born"). Peter then teaches the children how to fly (key advice from "I'm Flying": Think lovely thoughts.) The story shows the kids flying to and arriving in Neverland, accompanied by a reprise of one of the verses of that song to provide a suitable and satisfying ending. A large gatefold that shows Peter Pan and the Darling children flying over London adds extra visual drama.
