Nanny McPhee by P. J Hogan( Visual )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 2,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trama: I tre bambini della famiglia Darling, coccolati dai genitori amorevoli e minacciati dalle zelanti attenzioni di una zia che intende trasformare la primogenita in una elegante signorina, ricevono la visita di Peter Pan, ragazzino volante all'inseguimento della propria ombra. Ô l'amore a prima vista nato tra quest'ultimo e la ragazza a far volare tutti in direzione della "seconda stella a destra" fino al fatato paesaggio dell'isola che non c'è. Lì cominciano le schermaglie tra Peter, capo della banda dei bambini sperduti, la protagonista, decisa a strappare l'eroe dal suo mondo per costruire con lui la sua vita adulta, Campanellino gelosa e pronta ad impedire la partenza di Peter Pan, e Capitan Uncino, il capo dei pirati ansioso di far pagare all'eroe l'amputazione della mano. Le avventure si susseguono con continui capovolgimenti di fronte, eterne incertezze sulla scelta di diventare grandi, in una (classica) lotta tra bene e male dove nessun colpo, anche il più basso e scorretto viene risparmiato: Capitan Uncino, dopo aver rapito Campanellino e i tre fratellini Darling, fa avvelenare Peter riducendolo in fin di vita. Sarà proprio l'amore, rappresentato da un tenero bacio tra i due protagonisti, a far rinvigorire Peter, di nuovo in grado di volare grazie ai suoi pensieri felici, e a consentirgli di sconfiggere e ridicolizzare il vecchio Uncino, lasciandolo tra le grinfie del terribile coccodrillo. La nostalgia dei genitori convince infine i tre fratelli a fare ritorno a casa; l'invito per Peter Pan è quello di seguirli affrontando la crescita e la vita adulta, passi necessari per continuare a vivere il suo amore per Wendy. Le favole però non possono permettersi di perdere i propri eroi, e la conclusione non può che essere una sola: tutti i bambini devono diventare adulti tranne uno, Peter Pan
