Book Review: Peter Pan by Sir J. M. Barrie - Reviewed by Romi Foster (24 Nov 2011)
Peter Pan, the classic that we all know of, unless you don't of course, in which case, grap this beautiful copy; introduced by Tony Diterlizzi, author of the Spiderwick chronicles and more recently The Search for WondLa, he brings a short insight into how Peter Pan effected him when he first read it; more information on the author, film adaptations, old words and more and in the back pages, and they are great little extra's, plus fantastic for middle grade readers who will take up all the Try This's with lust!
Peter Pan is a quirky and sometimes downright scary and crazy book, having almost been scalped Peter get's right back onto his feet, but it is a must read none the less. Perfect for the Holidays!
Author Biography - Sir J. M. Barrie
James Matthew Barrie lived from 1860 to 1937. He was born in Scotland, the son of a weaver. He adored his mother, Margaret Ogilvie - it was the Scottish fashion in those days for wives to keep their maiden names - and, although the family were quite poor she made sure that he was educated. In 1885 Barrie moved to London to follow a literary career.He first wrote short stories and later successful plays which made him rich and famous. He was very nervous when he gave Peter Pan to his theatrical manager because it was a child's fantasy, the first and only time he had ever written especially for children. But Peter Pan with its flying and theatrical devices was a huge success and continues to be performed today. In 1911 James Barrie turned his play into a novel, one of the most thrilling and magical of all the great adventures that have been written for children.
