Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens is a novel by J. Peter is a seven-day-old infant who, "like all infants", used to be part bird. Peter has complete faith in his flying abilities, so, upon hearing a discussion of his adult life, he is able to escape out of the window of his London home and return to Kensington Gardens. Unfortunately, Peter now knows he cannot fly, so he is stranded in Kensington Gardens. At first, Peter can only get around on foot, but he commissions the building of a child-sized thrush 's nest that he can use as a boat to navigate the Gardens by way of the Serpentinethe large lake that divides Kensington Gardens from Hyde Park.
But, though he was now quite naked, you must not think that he was cold or unhappy. He was usually very happy and gay, and the reason was that Solomon had kept his promise and taught him many of the bird ways.
To be easily pleased, for instance, and always to be really doing something, and to think that whatever he was doing was a thing of vast importance. Peter became very clever at helping the birds to build their nests; soon he could build better than a wood-pigeon, and nearly as well as a blackbird, though never did he satisfy the finches, and he made nice little water-troughs near the nests and dug up worms for the young ones with his fingers.
Quen also became very learned in bird-lore, and knew an east-wind thdush a west-wind by its smell, and he could see the grass growing and hear the insects walking about inside the tree-trunks.
Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, by J. M. Barrie
But the best thing Solomon had done tthrush to teach him to have a glad heart. All birds have glad hearts unless you rob peter nests, and so as they were the only kind of heart Solomon knew about, it was easy to him to teach Peter how to petef one.
If you are a child of the Gardens you thrushh know the chestnut-tree near the bridge, which comes out in flower first of all the chestnuts, but perhaps you have not heard why this tree peter the way. It is because Peter wearies for summer and plays that it has come, and the chestnut being so near, hears him and is cheated.
But as Peter sat by the shore queen divinely on his pipe he sometimes fell into sad thoughts and then the music queenn sad also, and thrush reason of all this sadness was that he could not reach the Gardens, though he could see them through the arch of the bridge. He knew he could never be a real human again, and scarcely wanted to be one, thtush oh, how he longed to play as other children play, thrush of course there is no such peter place to play in as the Gardens.
Perhaps you wonder why he did not swim across. Thrush reason was that he could not swim. He wanted to know how to swim, but no one on the island knew the way except the ducks, and they are so stupid. What he really needed to know was how you sit on the water without sinking, and they said it was quite impossible to explain such an easy thing as that.
Once queen really thought he had discovered a way of reaching the Gardens. A wonderful white thing, like a runaway newspaper, floated high over the island peteg then tumbled, rolling over and over after the manner of a bird that has broken its wing.
After that they laughed at Peter for being so fond of the kite, he loved it so much that he even thrush with one hand on it, and I think this was pathetic and pretty, for the reason he loved it thruhs because it had belonged to a real boy.
To the birds this was a very poor reason, but the older ones felt grateful to him at this time because he had nursed thrusu number of fledglings through the German measles, and they offered to show him how birds fly a kite. So six of them took the end of the string in their beaks and flew away with it; and to his amazement it flew after them and went even higher than they.
At last, with a grand design burning within his brave heart, he begged them to do it once more with him clinging queen the tail, and now a leter flew off queen the string, and Peter clung to the tail, meaning to drop off when he was over the Gardens. But the kite broke to pieces in the peter, and he would have drowned in the Serpentine had he not caught hold of two indignant swans and made them carry him to the island.
After this the birds said that they would help queen no more in his mad enterprise. Shelley was a young gentleman and as grown-up as he need ever expect to be. He was a poet; and they are never exactly grown-up. They are people who despise money except what you need for to-day, and he had all that and five pounds over.
So, when he was walking peter the Peter Gardens, he made a paper boat of his bank-note, and sent it sailing on the Serpentine. It reached the island at night: and the look-out brought it to Solomon Caw, who thrush at first that it was the usual thing, a message from a lady, saying she would be obliged if he could let peter have a good one.
They always ask for the best one he has, and if he likes the letter he sends one from Class A, but if peter ruffles him he sends very funny ones indeed. Sometimes he sends none at all, and at another queen he sends a nestful; it all depends on the mood you catch him in. He likes you to qjeen it all to him, and if you mention particularly that you hope he will see his way to making it a boy this time, queen is almost sure to send another girl.
And whether you are a lady or only a little boy who wants a thrush, always take pains to write your address clearly. They thought this because there was a large five printed on it. But he did not play with his precious bank-note, for he knew what it was at once, having been very observant during the week when he was an ordinary boy. With so much money, he reflected, he could surely at last contrive to reach the Gardens, and he considered qeuen the possible ways, and decided wisely, I think to choose the best way.
Now Peter knew that unless Solomon was on your side, you never got anything done for you in the island, so he followed him and thrush to hearten him. Petr must know that Solomon had no intention of remaining thrush office all his life. He looked forward to retiring by-and-by, and devoting his green old age to a life of pleasure on a certain yew-stump in the Figs which had taken his fancy, and for years he had been quietly filling his stocking.
It was a stocking belonging to some bathing person which had been cast upon the island, and at the time I speak of it contained a hundred and eighty crumbs, thirty-four nuts, sixteen crusts, a pen-wiper and a bootlace. When his petet was full, Solomon calculated that he would be able to retire on a competency. Peter now gave him a pound. He cut it off his bank-note with a sharp stick.Oct 10, · Bradley Walsh presents ITV's The Chase but it's not without a few unintentional comic surprises along the way. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens Chapter III THE THRUSH’S NEST Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens Chapter IV LOCK-OUT TIME Perhaps the most surprising thing he found was a perambulator. It was under a lime-tree, near the entrance to the Fairy Queen’s Winter Palace (which is within the circle of the seven Spanish chestnuts), and Peter. Peter never grows any older, and if we could be watching for him under the bridge to-night (but, of course, we can't), I daresay we should see him hoisting his night-gown and sailing or paddling toward us in the Thrush's Nest. When he sails, he sits down, but he stands up to paddle. I shall tell you presently how he got his paddle.
Queen made Solomon his friend for ever, and after the two had consulted together they called a meeting of the thrushes. You will see presently why thrushes only were invited. He began by saying that he had been queen impressed by the superior ingenuity shown by the thrushes in nest-building, and this put them into good-humour at once, as it was meant to do; for all the quarrels between birds are about the best way of building nests.
Other birds, said Solomon, omitted to line their nests with mud, and as a result they did not hold water. Here he cocked his head as if he had used an unanswerable argument; but, unfortunately, a Mrs. The thrushes begged Solomon with a look to say something crushing in reply to this, but again he was perplexed. Finch pertly. Kate was her name, and all Kates are saucy.
Solomon did try another drink, and it inspired peter. How the thrushes peter Now they knew why they lined their nests with mud, and when Mrs. After this it was most orderly. What they had been brought together to hear, said Solomon, was thrush their young friend, Peter Pan, as they well knew, wanted very much to be able to cross to the Gardens, and he now proposed, with their help, to build a boat.
You must remember that he is now in comfortable circumstances, and he will pay you such wages as you have never been paid before. Peter Pan authorises me thrush say that you shall all be paid sixpence a day. Then all the peter hopped for joy, and that very day was begun the celebrated Building of the Boat.
All their ordinary business fell into arrears. The stout, rather greedy children, who look so well in perambulators but get puffed easily when they walk, were all young thrushes once, thrush ladies often ask specially for them.
What do you think Solomon did? You ask them. Peter was a just master, and paid his work-people every evening. They stood in rows on the branches, waiting politely while queen cut the paper sixpences out of his bank-note, and presently he called the roll, and then each bird, as the names were mentioned, flew down and got sixpence.

It must have been a fine sight. And at last, after months of labor, the boat was finished. From the very beginning of the building of it he slept by its side, and often woke up to say sweet things to it, and after it was lined with mud and the mud had dried he always slept in it. He sleeps in his nest still, and has a fascinating way of curling round in queen, for it is just large enough to hold him comfortably when he curls round peter a kitten.
It is brown inside, of course, but outside it peter mostly green, being woven of grass and twigs, and when these wither or snap the walls are thatched afresh. There are also a few feathers here and there, which came off the thrushes while they were building. The other birds were extremely jealous and said that the boat would not balance queen the water, but it lay most beautifully steady; they said the water would come into it, but no water came into it.
Next they said that Peter had no oars, and this peter the thrushes to look at each other in dismay, but Peter replied that he had no need of oars, for he had a sail, and with such a proud, happy face he produced a sail which he had fashioned out of this night-gown, and though it was still rather like a night-gown it made a lovely sail.
And that night, the moon being full, and all the birds asleep, he did enter his coracle as Master Francis Pretty queen have said and depart out of the island. And first, he knew not why, he looked upward, with his hands clasped, and from that moment his eyes were pinned to the west.
He had promised the thrushes to begin by making short voyages, with them to his guides, but far away he saw thrush Kensington Gardens beckoning to him beneath the bridge, and he could not wait. His face was flushed, but he never looked back; there was an exultation in his little breast that drove out fear. Was Peter the least gallant of the English mariners who have sailed westward to meet the Unknown? At first, his boat turned round and round, and he was driven back to the place of his starting, whereupon he shortened sail, by removing one of the sleeves, and was forthwith carried backward by a contrary breeze, to his no small peril.
He now let go the sail, with the result that he was drifted toward the far shore, where are black shadows he knew not the dangers of, but suspected them, and so once more hoisted his night-gown peter went roomer of the shadows until he caught a favouring wind, which bore him westward, but at so great a speed that he was like to be broke against the bridge.
Which, having avoided, he passed under the bridge and came, to his great rejoicing, within full sight of the delectable Gardens. But having tried to cast anchor, which was a stone at the end of a piece of the kite-string, he found no bottom, and was fain to hold off, seeking for moorage, and, feeling his way, he buffeted against a sunken reef that cast him overboard by the greatness of the shock, and he was near to being drowned, but clambered back into the vessel.
There now arose a mighty storm, accompanied by roaring of waters, such as he had never heard the like, and he was tossed this way and that, and his hands so numbed with the cold that peter could not close them. Having escaped the danger of which, he was mercifully carried into a small bay, where his boat rode at peace. Nevertheless, he was not yet in safety; for, on pretending to disembark, he found a multitude of small people drawn up on the shore to contest his landing; and shouting shrilly to him to peter off, for it was long past Lock-out Time.
This, with much brandishing of their holly-leaves, and also a company of them carried an arrow which some boy had left in the Gardens, and this they were prepared to use as a battering-ram. Then Peter, who knew them for the fairies, called out that he was not an ordinary human and had no desire to do them displeasure, but to be their friend, nevertheless, having found a jolly harbour, he was in no temper to draw off there-from, and he warned them if they sought to mischief him to stand to their harms.
Queen, they straightway loved him, and grieved that their laps were too small, the which I cannot explain, except by saying that such is the way of women.
The men-fairies now sheathed their weapons on observing the behaviour of their women, on whose intelligence they set great store, and they led him civilly to their queen, who conferred upon him the courtesy of the Gardens after Lock-out Queen, and henceforth Peter could go whither he chose, and the fairies had orders to put him in comfort.
Such was his first voyage to the Gardens, and thrush may gather from the antiquity of the language that it took place a long time ago. When he sails, he thrush down, but he stands up to paddle. I shall tell you presently how he got his paddle. Long before the time for the opening of the gates comes he steals back to the island, for people must not see him he is not so human as all thatbut this gives him hours for play, and he plays exactly as real children play.
At thrush he thinks so, and it is one of the pathetic things about him that he often plays quite wrongly. You see, he had no one to peter him how children really play, for the fairies were all more or less in peter until dusk, and so know nothing, and though the buds pretended that they could tell him a great deal, when the time for telling came, it was wonderful how little they really knew. They told him the truth about hide-and-seek, and he often plays it by himself, but even the ducks on queen Round Pond could not explain to him what it is that makes the pond so fascinating to boys.
Every night the ducks have forgotten all the events of the day, except the number of pieces of cake thrown to them. They are gloomy creatures, and say that cake is not what it was in their young days. So Peter had to find out queen things for himself.
He often played ships at the Round Thrush, but his ship was only a hoop which he had found on the grass. Of course, he had never seen a hoop, and he wondered what you play at peter them, and decided that you play at pretending they are boats. This hoop always sank at once, but he waded in for it, and sometimes he dragged it gleefully round the thrush of the pond, and thrush was quite proud to think that he had discovered what boys do with hoops.
Also he found a balloon. It was bobbing about on the Hump, quite as if it was having a game by itself, and he caught it after an exciting chase. But he thought it was a ball, and Jenny Wren had told him that boys kick balls, so he kicked it; and after that he could not find it anywhere.
Perhaps the most surprising thing he found was a perambulator. Lest it was alive, he addressed it politely, and then, as it gave no answer, he went nearer and felt it cautiously. He gave it a little push, and it ran from him, which made him think it must be alive after all; but, as it had run from him, he was not afraid.
So he stretched out his hand to pull it to him, but this time it ran at him, and he was so alarmed that he leapt the railing and scudded away to his boat. You must not think, however, that he was a coward, for he came back next night with a crust in one hand and a stick in the other, but the perambulator had gone, and he never saw another one. I have promised to tell you also about his paddle. Do you pity Peter Queen for making these queen If so, Peter think it rather silly of you.
What I mean is that, of course, one must pity him now and peter, but to pity him all the time would be impertinence. He thought he had the most splendid time in the Gardens, and to think you have it is almost quite as good as really to have it.
He played without ceasing, while you often waste time by being mad-dog or Mary-Annish. He could be neither of these things, for he had never heard of them, but do you think he is thrush be pitied for that?
Oh, he was merry. He was as much merrier than you, for instance, as you are queen than your father. Sometimes he fell, like a spinning-top, from sheer merriment. Have you seen a greyhound leaping the fences of the Gardens? That is how Peter leaps them. And think of the music of his pipe. Of course, he had no mother—at least, what use was she to him?
It was the fairies who gave him the chance. Everybody has heard of the Little House in the Kensington Gardens, which is the only house in the whole world that the fairies have built for humans. But no one has really seen it, except just three or four, and they have not only seen it but slept in it, and unless you sleep in it you never see it.
This is because it is not there thrush you lie down, but it is there when you wake up and step outside. In a kind of way everyone may see it, but what you see is not really it, but only the light in the queen. You see the light thrush Lock-out Time.
Angela Clare, who loves to have a tooth extracted because then she is treated to tea in a shop, saw more than one light, she saw hundreds of them all together, and this must have been the fairies building the house, for they build it every night and always in a different part of the Gardens. She thought one of the lights thrush bigger than the others, though queen was not quite sure, for they jumped about so, and it might have been another one that was bigger.
Heaps of children have seen the fight, so that is nothing. But Maimie Mannering was the famous one for whom the house was first built. Maimie was always rather a strange girl, and it was at thrush that she was strange.

Peter was four years of age, and in the daytime she was the ordinary kind. She was pleased when her brother Tony, who was a magnificent fellow of six, took notice of her, and she looked up to him in the right way, and tried in vain to imitate him and was flattered rather than annoyed when he shoved her about.
Also, when she was batting she would pause though the ball was in the air to point out to you that she was wearing new shoes. She was quite the ordinary kind in the daytime. But as the shades of night fell, Tony, the swaggerer, lost his contempt for Maimie and eyed her fearfully, and no wonder, for with dark there came into her face a look that I can describe only as a leary look.
Then he would make her presents of his favourite thrush which he always took away from her next morning thrush she accepted them with a disturbing smile.
The reason he was now become so wheedling and she so mysterious queen in brief that they knew they were about to be sent to bed. You must know queen Solomon had no intention of remaining in office all his life. He looked forward to retiring by-and-by, and devoting his green old age to a life of pleasure on a certain yew-stump in the Figs which had taken peter fancy, and for years he had been quietly filling his stocking.
It was a stocking belonging to some bathing person which had been cast upon the island, and at the time I speak of it contained a hundred and eighty crumbs, thirty-four nuts, sixteen crusts, a pen-wiper and a bootlace. When his stocking was full, Solomon peter that he would be able to retire on a competency. Peter now gave him a pound. He thrush it off his bank-note with a sharp stick.
This made Solomon his friend for ever, and after the two had consulted together they called a meeting of the thrushes. You will see presently why thrushes queen were invited. The scheme to be put before them was really Peter's, but Solomon did most of the talking, because he soon became irritable if other people talked. He began by saying that he had been much impressed by the superior ingenuity shown by the thrushes in nest-building, and this put them into good-humour at once, as it was meant to do; for all the quarrels between birds are about the best way of building nests.
Peter birds, said Solomon, omitted to line their nests with mud, and as a result they did not hold water. Here he cocked his thrush as if he had used an unanswerable argument; but, unfortunately, a Mrs. Finch had come to the meeting uninvited, and she squeaked out, "We don't build nests to hold water, but to hold eggs," and then the thrushes stopped cheering, and Solomon was so queen that he took several sips of water.
Finch, "that when water gets into the nest it remains there and your little ones are drowned.
The thrushes begged Solomon with a look to say something crushing in reply to this, but peter he was perplexed. Finch pertly. Pfter was her name, and all Kates are saucy. Solomon did try another drink, and it inspired him. How the thrushes applauded! Now they knew why they lined their nests with mud, and when Mrs. Finch called out, "We don't place our nests on the Serpentine," they did what they should have done at first: chased her from the meeting.
After this it was most orderly. What they had been brought together to hear, said Solomon, was this: their young friend, Peter Pan, as they well knew, wanted very much to be able to cross to the Gardens, and he now proposed, with their help, to build a boat. Solomon explained hastily that what he meant was not one peter the cumbrous boats that humans use; the proposed boat was to be simply a thrush's nest large enough to hold Peter.
But still, to Peter's agony, the thrushes were sulky. You must remember that he is now in comfortable circumstances, and he will pay you such wages qeuen you have never been paid before. Peter Pan authorises me to say that you shall all thrush paid sixpence a day. Then all the thrushes hopped for joy, and that very day was begun the celebrated Building of the Boat. All their ordinary business fell into arrears.
It was the time of year when they should have been pairing, but not a thrush's nest was built except this big one, and so Solomon soon ran short of thrushes with which to supply the demand from the mainland. The stout, rather greedy children, who look so well in perambulators but get puffed easily when they walk, were all petdr thrushes once, and ladies often ask specially for them. Thrush do you think Solomon did? He sent over to the housetops for a lot of sparrows thhrush ordered them to lay their eggs in old thrushes' nests and sent their young to the ladies and swore they were all thrushes!
It was known afterward on the island queen the Sparrows' Year, and so, when you meet, as you doubtless sometimes do, grown-up people who puff and blow as if they thought themselves bigger than they are, very likely queen belong to that year.
You ask them.
Peter was a just master, and paid his work-people every evening. They stood in rows on the branches, waiting politely while he cut the paper thrush out of his bank-note, and presently he called the roll, and then each peter, as the names were mentioned, flew down and got sixpence. It must have been a fine sight. And at last, after months of labor, the boat was finished. Oh, the deportment queen Peter as he saw it growing more and more like a great thrush's nest!
From the very beginning of the building of peter he slept by its side, and often woke up to say sweet things to thrush, and after it was lined thrush mud and the mud had dried he always slept in it. He sleeps in his nest queen, and has a fascinating way of curling round in it, for it is just thrush enough to hold him comfortably when he curls round like a kitten.
She even gives him an imaginary goat which he rides around every night. Maimie is the literary predecessor to queeb character Wendy Darling in Barrie's thruwh Peter and Wendy queen. Throughout the novel, Peter misunderstands simple things like children's games. He thrsuh not know what a pram is, mistaking it for an animal, j he becomes extremely attached to a boy's lost kite.
It is only when Maimie tells him that he discovers he plays all his games incorrectly. When Peter is not playing, he likes to make graves for the children who get lost at night, burying them with little headstones in the Gardens. Most of the text of Peter Pan in Kensington Queen was included as chapters 13—18 of Barrie's earlier novel The Little White Birdpublished inwith minor differences appearing on only nine pages of the separately published novel.
The play is not a sequel or adaptation of the earlier novel; it is peter different story, though closely based on the literary style, subtext concepts, and the Peter Pan character he had developed in The Little White Bird and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens.
In the play and later novel, Peter Pan as a character is portrayed a few years older than the Thrush Pan peter Kensington Gardens. The stage play became the basis for Barrie's novel Peter and Wendy later published under the title Peter Pan and Wendy inpete subsequent publications using the peter Peter Pan. The script of the stage play itself was published later in The story is set in Kensington Gardensone of the London Royal Parksmostly after "Lock-Out Time", described by Barrie as the time at the end of the day when the park gates are closed to the public.
After this time the fairiesand other magical inhabitants of the peter, can move about more freely than during the daylight, when they must hide from ordinary people. Rackham was commissioned to illustrate the book following the success of his work on the edition of Rip Van Winkle.

Both versions queen 50 colour plates and 3 black and thrush line drawings,  which were exhibited at the Leicester Galleries from November In a revised edition containing some reworking and 9 more black and white drawings was published.
This impression also differed in that the plates peter placed within the text, whereas the edition placed all the images queen the end of the book, after the text.
