Overview

This ebook contains two books by J. M. Barrie - Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, & Peter and Wendy. Both books contain all of the original illustrations - 74 in Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (most in full color) by illustrator Arthur Rackham (who also illustrated Alice's Adventures in Wonderland), and 13 in Peter and Wendy by Illustrator F. D. Bedford.

~~ Excerpt from the Editor's Preface:
The Peter Pan character first appeared in Scottish novelist J. M. Barrie’s novel A Little White Bird, published in 1902. The chapters about Peter Pan were a story within the story. In 1904, Barrie’s stage play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up debuted and enjoyed great success. Following up on this success, Barrie extracted the Peter Pan chapters from A Little White Bird (which was a book for adults), and published Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, a children’s book, in 1906. The book was illustrated by Arthur Rackham, who had previously illustrated Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Barrie expanded and adapted his stage play into a novel, which was published in 1911 as Peter and Wendy, with illustrations by F. D. Bedford.

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens is very different from the idea most of us have of Peter Pan (thanks in great part to the Disney film and the Mary Martin Broadway musical). In fact, Peter is only seven days old in this book!...

Meet the Author

Sir James Matthew Barrie (9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. The child of a family of small-town weavers, he was educated in Scotland. He moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him in writing about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about this ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. This play quickly overshadowed his previous work and although he continued to write successfully, it became his best-known work, credited with popularising the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously.[1] Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital, which continues to benefit from them.
