'Clap your hands for the boy who refused to grow up and whom the world will never allow to grow old' Gerladine McCaughrean, Carnegie Medal Winner

"Intensely moving as well as enchanting in its evocation of childhood, the heartlessness of youth and parental grief as children grow older."
- Daily Telegraph

'Clap your hands for the boy who refused to grow up and whom the world will never allow to grow old' Gerladine McCaughrean, Carnegie Medal Winner

James Matthew Barrie was born in Kirriemuir, Scotland in 1860. Peter Pan was inspired by the author's friendship with the Llewelyn-Davies family. Barrie would tell George and Jack Llewyllen-Davies - the original lost boys - stories about Neverland. He originally wrote the story as a play and its first performance in 1904was a hit. He was made a baronet in 1913 and awarded the Order of Merit in 1922. J.M. Barrie died on June 19, 1937.
