Description

Available again, this popular edition of Peter Pan includes the complete and unabridged text accompanied by fifty full-color paintings by Scott Gustafson. Kirkus Reviews wrote "Gustafson's lusty oil paintings of the pirates are akin to N.C. Wyeth's...[he] is a talented craftsman who skillfully melds his references to past greats to create an appropriately traditional style that has enough of a contemporary aura for broad popular appeal." Children and parents will feel like they're in Neverland, too, with this definitive edition of Barrie's timeless classic.




About the Author
J.M. Barrie was born in 1860, the ninth of ten children of hard-working parents in Scotland's jute-weaving industry. Fascinated by stories of her own life told him by his mother, he was determined to write, finding work on the Nottingham Journal after graduating from Edinburgh University. In 1885, he moved to London as a freelance writer and successfully sold the Auld Licht Idylls, a volume based on his mother's tales. By the time Peter Pan opened on the London stage in 1904, Barrie had written more than thirty novels and plays, many autobiographical and several of them major hits such as The Little Minister, Quality Street and The Admirable Crichton. Knighted and awarded the Order of Merit he continued writing into old age. He died in 1937.
