More About J. M. Barrie

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! J. M. Barrie (1860-1937) was a bestselling writer well before he created Peter Pan. His famous children's plays grew from stories he had made up for the young sons of his friends Arthur and Sylvia Davies. First performed in 1904, Peter Pan was such a success it became an annual Christmas event. In 1911, Barrie novelized the play. Upon his death, Barrie left the copyright for Peter Pan to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London.
Alison Lurie is the bestselling author of such novels as The War Between the Tates and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Foreign Affairs. She has also written extensively about children's literature, including Don't Tell the Grownups, Boys and Girls Forever, and, as co-editor, the Garland Library of Children's Classics. She is F. J. Whiton Professor of American Literature Emeritas at Cornell University.

James Matthew Barrie was born in 1860 and died in 1937.

Multiple edition reviews  Dec 10, 2009
ALL EDITIONS ARE NOT EQUAL! this site has the bad habit of gathering ALL reviews for one title and posting them under ANY edition. Reviewers, PLEASE post all the necessary info to allow readers to discern which edition you are reviewing. The title and author is the same yes but the abridger, adapter, illustrator, edition year/copyright, ISBN would be a help... at least until this site figures out that classics get reprinted a zillion times and reviews are usually about a particular edition.
You Can't Go Wrong With This Book!  Oct 9, 2009
I bought these to be included as favors for my son's 8th birthday party - inexpensive and a true value! This is a classic story! This book gives adults and children everywhere permission to never grow up (at least for a little while). When I read this book I find myself encouraging my own children to use their imaginations and to believe as much as they wish that they truly don't have to age another day!

This story is not only endless fun, but is also a story filled with bittersweet realizations and acceptance. From the first line, "All children, except one, grow up", to the last, "...and thus it will go on, so long as children are gay and innocent and heartless" readers are reminded that the delight and fun of a child is temporary. In the first chapter, it is Mrs. Darling who, in her delight for her daughter Wendy, unwittingly breaks the news - that Wendy will have to grow up: "Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!", she says. Wendy is not upset by this. We see that she adores her mother and may in fact look forward to womanhood when Barrie describes Mrs. Darling's kiss "perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner" of her sweet mocking mouth.

But for now, there is time! Wendy acts as our liason between two worlds and we will enjoy childhood while it lasts. As Peter persuades Wendy to leave London with him she generously invites us to go with her when she insists that John and Michael be included. And then we're off to Neverland! Throughout the story Wendy keeps one foot firmly planted in reality, while keeping the other foot willingly, but cautiously, in Neverland. In admiring the mermaids we learn with Wendy that not everything is as it seems. Being hunted and kidnapped by pirates isn't always pleasant, and to be thought of jealously by a mischievous fairy and beautiful Indian Princess is frustrating. She also recognizes how The Lost Boys have forgotten their mothers and feels it is her duty to remind them how much mothers truly care for their children and is determined to not forget her own.

Part of what makes this book such a favorite is the style in which it is written. It is filled with figurative language and fantastic imagery. One of my favorite scenes is when Mrs. Darling learns "of Peter when she was tidying up her children's minds". Barrie insightfully writes: "It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can't) you would see your own mother doing this, and you would find it very interesting to watch her. It is quite like tidying up drawers. You would see her on her knees, I expect, lingering humorously over some of your contents, wondering where on earth you had picked this thing up, making discoveries sweet and not so sweet, pressing this to her cheek as if it were as nice as a kitten, and hurriedly stowing that out of sight. When you wake in the morning, the naughtiness and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind; and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out your prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on." The vocabulary, similes, metaphors, and imagery used with such tenderness and honesty reveal so much and are not far from the truth - ask any romantic mother!
A Timeless Classic  Mar 20, 2009

I bought "Peter Pan" for my daughter doing her fourth grade at school. Although I had read the book over 35 years ago, its magic rekindled again as I read this unique, amusing and timeless classic. The book makes me laugh and smile.

"Peter Pan" is a fantastic and ageless fantasy adventure book about a boy who magically refuses to grow up. The boy can fly and at one time he visits the Darling family in the company of a fairy and he teaches Wendy and her two brothers to fly and together they fly to Neverland, Peter's fantasy island homeland. In Neverland, Peter is the leader of the Lost Boys and there he performs many heroic and some not-so-heroic feats. There several adventures take place including Peter fighting his nemesis, the wicked leader of a group of pirates Captain Hook, encounters with mermaids, Indians, fairies and the like.

This is a compelling fantasy story that is good reading for the young and the young at heart. The book has pretty colours and it is easy for children to read and follow the story. The only blemish is describing Peter Pan as sometimes very cruel and heartless and one wonders what lingers in the minds of the little ones afterwards.

All in all, this is a high quality, lucid and readable book that I recommend to anyone that loves to read an unforgettable adventure story.

off to never never land  Dec 23, 2008
Charles Vess has the ability to make even a dull and poorly written book amazing and captivating, even though this is not the case. Beautiful art with a timeless classic.
