- This article is about the fictional island of Neverland. For the property owned by Michael Jackson, see Neverland Ranch.
Neverland is the fictional island featured in the children's story Peter Pan, written by J. M. Barrie. While sojourning in Neverland, children cease to age; therefore, Neverland is often used as a metaphor for eternal childhood, immortality and escapism. It is sometimes referred to as "Never Never Land", but was never called that in Barrie's original works.
One gets to Neverland by flying towards the "second star to the right, and straight on 'till morning". Flight can be achieved through the application of pixie dust and the thinking of happy thoughts. Important denizens of Neverland are Peter Pan, Pirates, the Lost Boys , Indians, Captain Hook, Smee , and the Crocodile . Peter, obviously, is the most important denizen, and Neverland's climate and weather responds to his presence and mood.
