Tonight, we shall read the next chapter to “Peter Pan”, the 1911 novel by J.M. Barrie. If you’d like to start this story from the beginning, you can find the first episode aired on March 20th, 2019. If you’d like a refresher by listening to the previous episode, it aired on November 11th, 2020.

In the last episode, the children are napping on Marooner’s Rock in the Mermaid’s Lagoon, when they realize pirates are near and dive underwater. The pirates caught Tiger Lily, from the island tribe, snooping on their ship and planned to leave her on the rock to drown. Peter impersonates Hook’s voice and orders the pirates to let her go, which they fearfully obey. Hook appears afterwards and gives his men the news that the lost boys have found a mother in Wendy. They come up with a plan to kidnap her to make her their mother instead, as even pirates apparently want to be comforted and taken care of.
