Read full description of the books:
I just love the original story of Peter Pan, and I was rather excited to learn about this prequel. Unfortunately, my excitement did not last. I found the plot to be confusing and quite frankly, all over the place! Due to this, I found I had quite a bit of trouble understanding what was actually going on in the story, which is a major put-off for me.
In the original story, I am able to connect with all the characters, but with this one, I had difficulties even relating to Peter!
Having said all of these negative comments, there was a magical fairy take element in this story, which is what I came for, and I enjoyed reading parts of Peter Pans childhood. Peter Pan,as a character, has always interested me, even now I am an adult.
Having read this, I feel no different really, so to be honest, this book was unnecessary.

Read information about the authorSir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan.
The son of a weaver, Barrie studied at the University of Edinburgh. He took up journalism, worked for a Nottingham newspaper, and contributed to various London journals before moving to London in 1885. His early works, Auld Licht Idylls (1889) and A Window in Thrums (1889), contain fictional sketches of Scottish life and are commonly seen as representative of the Kailyard school. The publication of The Little Minister (1891) established his reputation as a novelist. During the next 10 years Barrie continued writing novels, but gradually his interest turned toward the theatre.
In London he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him in writing about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about this ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. This play quickly overshadowed his previous work and although he continued to write successfully, it became his best-known work, credited with popularising the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously.
Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital, which continues to benefit from them.
