The boy who wouldn't grow up, Peter Pan has the power of flight and lives on a magical island. But he is fascinated by Mary Darling's bedtime stories for her children and makes covert night-time visits to their Bloomsbury home. One evening he loses his shadow, and after Mary's daughter Wendy helps him reattach it, he invites her to fly away with him on an extraordinary adventure.In addition to the famous 1911 novel Peter and Wendy, which tells the familiar adventures of Peter Pan in Neverland and popularized the characters of Tinkerbell and Captain Hook, this volume contains the celebrated stage version on which Peter and Wendy is based, as well as Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, in which Peter Pan is a seven-day-old infant who consorts with birds and fairies and travels down the Serpentine in a thrush's nest.

About the author

James Matthew Barrie, geb. 1860 in Kirriemuir/Schottland schrieb Erzählungen über seine schottischen Heimat und Theaterstücke. Barrie besuchte die Dumfries Academy und machte 1882 seinen Abschluss als Master of Arts an der Universität Edinburgh. Anschließend arbeitete er als Journalist für das Nottingham Journal und ab 1885 als freier Schriftsteller in London. Seine Ehe mit der Schauspielerin Mary Ansell endete kinderlos in einer Scheidung. 1913 wurde Barrie der Titel Baronet verliehen. Er starb 1937 in London.

Joel Stewart verbrachte seine frühe Kindheit in einer Kommune auf dem Land und wuchs später in Sheffield auf. Er absolvierte das »Falmouth College of Arts« mit Auszeichnung und arbeitete bereits vor seinem Abschluss an seinem ersten Bilderbuch. In Deutschland fanden besonders seine Illustrationen zu Andersens Märchen große Beachtung.
