Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens reveals the magical life of the boy who wouldn’t grow up when he is yet to meet Wendy Darling. J. M. Barrie’s treasured character embarks on his earliest adventures in this charming children’s novel.
Peter Pan, the boy who wouldn’t grow up, is one of the most beloved characters in children’s literature. Long before his escapades with pirates, mermaids, and Lost Boys, he first appeared in our storybooks as a small baby. Escaping from his family home, Peter lives with the birds and fairies in the magical depths of London’s Kensington Gardens. An ever curious and daring child, he explores the fascinating world around him, learning how to fly with his fairy friends. This wondrous tale captures the innocence and imagination of childhood.
First published in 1906, most of the text in Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was originally published in J. M. Barrie’s novel The Little White Bird (1902). Over a century later, this magical read is still loved by people of all ages.
