Peter Pan

My bookclub kids made me read Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. It is a three book series that is a prequel to the original Peter Pan.  I whizzed through the series and decided I should really read the original.  Yes,  I only knew the Disney version.  If you know anything about the Disney version of any older story — you know that Peter Pan has been cleaned up and prettified.  Let me just say – a lot.  The first few paragraphs are odd.  As are other parts.  For now, I will leave you with the word that was used to describe Tinkerbelle:embonpoint.
