Background: I hate the Peter Pan movies with a passion of a thousand suns (yet love the recent Fairies movies that star Tinkerbell, go figure). I hate it especially for the women-hating and racism. My kids, unfortunately, love the movies and borrow them from the library or rent from the movie place on base at regular intervals.
So my question is this: Is the book that the Peter Pan movies are based on also women-hating and racist? Or was this Walt Disney's touch on the movies and the book(s) are not close to the movie?
Deciding on whether to read those books to expand my knowledge and experience with British literature. All opinions, answers, and thoughts are welcome and appreciated.
