About this book

Peter and Wendy (1911) is the title of James M. Barrie's novelization of his most famous play, Peter Pan: or, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904). Inspired by Barrie's friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family, both the play and the novel tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous young boy who can fly, and his adventures on the island of Neverland with Wendy Darling and her brothers. The novel follows the play closely, though its final chapter is an addition to the original work.

Peter and Wendy was first published in 1911 by Hodder & Stoughton in the United Kingdom and Charles Scribner's Sons in the United States. In 1929, Barrie gave the copyright to the works featuring Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), Britain's leading children's hospital.

From the publisher

Peter Pan and Wendy" is the most famous work of J. M. Barrie, which was published in the form of play in 1904 and then of fiction in 1911. Both versions tell the story of Peter Pan, a boy fairy with the ability to fly and his adventures on the Neverland (Finding Neverland), along with her friend Wendy and her brothers, the Lost Boys and the fairy Tinkerbell, the Indian Princess Tiger Lily and finally the pirata Capitan hook (James Hook). Although the character of Peter Pan had already appeared earlier in 1902 white bird's tale, the story is told here is substantially different and also concerns a different Peter Pan, preadolescent and that he can fly.
