About the Author
James Matthew Barrie is born in 1860 in Angus, Scotland. He is the ninth of ten children and his parents are weavers. As a child he loves reading and playing make-believe games about pirates with his school friends. Barrie grows up in Scotland, then he moves to London because he wants to become a writer. He writes novels, plays for the theatre and articles for newspapers. He also makes friends with many writers.
In London, Barrie often takes his dog for walks in Kensington Gardens. One day he meets the Llewelyn Davies family there: George, John, Michael, Peter and Nicholas, and Their mother, Sylvia,. They become good friends and Barrie starts to spend a lot of time with the family. He invents stories to entertain the boys. He tells them that baby Peter can fly, and the bars on the windows of the children’s bedroom are to stop him flying away. The idea for the story of Peter Pan is born. First Barrie writes a play called Peter Pan. It is very popular and he decides to write a novel. It is called Peter and Wendy. Both adults and children love it.
Barrie dies in 1937. In his will he gives the copyright of all the Peter Pan works to the children’s hospital in Great Ormond Street, London. His birthplace is now a Museum.
