MY POST IS ABOUT: Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
I Loved, Loved, LOVED this fairytale when I was growing up. You really can't go wrong with Peter Pan. The cast of characters that Barrie wrote are so diverse, everyone can find something to love about this classic tale. Whether it's pirates, mermaids, or Indians, there's something for the kid inside you.
One of the things I love most about Peter Pan is the theme of a never-ending childhood, never having to grow up. I feel that as I'm growing up, you always kind of look back on the golden age of your childhood and wish for the good old days. Peter Pan reminds you of those times. It reminds you to make sure that you take time out to act like a kid and have fun every once in awhile, or else life is just not worth living. You've got to make sure you can escape to Never-Land every so often. :)
I can seriously remember watching the Disney version of Peter Pan at least once a day when I was a kid. It was that good. I loved the great villains, the mermaids, and of course, Peter himself. Such a classic tale. Peter Pan, put simply, makes me smile.
