About the Book

The Scottish author J. M. Barrie's book The Little White Bird has a variety of moods, from fantasy and whimsy to social humor with dark, violent overtones.
The first chapters of the novel are set in London, contemporaneous with Barrie's writing of them. They involve some brief time travel and other fantastical aspects while remaining in the London setting. All perambulators lead to Kensington Gardens is how the renowned London park is presented in the middle chapters, which ultimately became Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens.
Particularly after "Lock-Out Time," which Barrie describes as the time at the end of the day when the park gates are closed to the public and the fairies and other magical inhabitants of the park can move about more freely than during the daylight when they must hide from ordinary people, the Kensington Gardens chapters include detailed descriptions of the features of the Gardens as well as fantasy names given to the locations by the story's characters. Following the chapters about Kensington Gardens, the third half of the book is once more mostly set in London, but there are a few brief visits to the Gardens that are not related to the Peter Pan story.

About Author

J. M. Barrie

Scottish author Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, is most known for creating Peter Pan. He was also a playwright. He was raised and educated in Scotland before relocating to London, where he penned a number of well-received books and plays. There, he met the Llewelyn Davies brothers, who later served as the inspiration for his works Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a 1904 West End "fairy play," about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. The story of a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens was first included in Barrie's 1902 adult novel The Little White Bird. Despite his ongoing success as a writer, Peter Pan eclipsed all of his earlier works and is credited with making the name Wendy well-known. After the deaths of the Davies boys' parents, Barrie adopted them clandestinely. George V created Barrie a baronet on June 14, 1913, and in the New Year's Honours of 1922, he was inducted into the Order of Merit.
