Peter Pan vs. Captain Hook Blog Hop 7/12/2012

Peter Pan Vs. Captain Hook

Welcome to Neverland. Where is Neverland you ask-it's in the minds of children - "second star to the right and straight on till morning" and from afar, these stars depict Neverland in the distance. The Darling children, Wendy and her brothers are whisked away to the magical world of Neverland with the hero of their stories, Peter Pan. Peter Pan, who takes them to Never Land, where there is an ongoing war between Peter's gang of rag-tag runaways and the evil Pirate Captain Hook is taking place. The novel Peter Pan mentions that there are many more suns and moons there than in our world, making time difficult to track, and that the way to find the time is to find the crocodile, as there is a clock inside it. The crocodile is also a nemesis to Captain Hook who lost his leg thanks to this crocodile. Now Captain Hook is also Peter Pan's nemesis ..... Its adventure and the story of a boy who never wants to grow up .... hmmmmmmm, ok. not commenting on that! LOL!!!

Our sponsor for this hop is Lisa Peters of Scrapping with Lisa's Designs, who is offering a $20 certifcate towards free paper piecing files --- free is always good!!!
