Our Peter Pan literary candle will sail you straight through the night sky and off to Neverland. Whether you find yourself aboard the Jolly Roger, on the shore of the Mermaids' Lagoon, or snug in the Lost Boys' Home Under The Ground, the Peter Pan literary candle's tropical scents of flowering verbena, fresh sea breeze, and hint of citrus invite you to answer a question from The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up himself: “Would you like an adventure now, or would like to have your tea first?”
Underground Books' literary candles are made of 100% hand-poured and sustainably sourced soy. Each candle holds 6.6 ounces of soy wax, over 30 hours of burn time, a cotton wick, and infinite opportunities to daydream, immersed in the scents of your favorite stories.
"Of course the Neverlands vary a good deal. John's, for instance, had a lagoon with flamingoes flying over it at which John was shooting, while Michael, who was very small, had a flamingo with lagoons flying over it. John lived in a boat turned upside down on the sands, Michael in a wigwam, Wendy in a house of leaves deftly sewn together. John had no friends, Michael had friends at night, Wendy had a pet wolf forsaken by its parents, but on the whole the Neverlands have a family resemblance, and if they stood still in a row you could say of them that they have each other's nose, and so forth. On these magic shores children at play are for ever beaching their coracles. We too have been there; we can still hear the sound of the surf, though we shall land no more.Of all delectable islands the Neverland is the snuggest and most compact, not large and sprawly, you know, with tedious distances between one adventure and another, but nicely crammed. When you play at it by day with the chairs and table-cloth, it is not in the least alarming, but in the two minutes before you go to sleep it becomes very real. That is why there are night-lights."
