The Lovereading4Kids comment

Mabel Lucie Attwell was one of the best-loved children’s illustrators of the last century and J. M. Barrie himself requested that she illustrate Peter Pan. For many adults her versions of Peter, Wendy, Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys will be the most familiar, remembered from their own childhoods, and her illustrations catch both the cosy safety of the nursery, and the dreamy magic of Neverland. Colour plates and line drawings are both full of life and expression and she gives Peter and Wendy a clear childlike innocence . This handsome edition will make a lovely Christmas gift. ~ Andrea Reece

Both this edition of Peter Pan and Wendy and Alice in Wonderland are introduced by Webster Wickham, great-grandson of Mabel Lucie Attwell.

About the Author

J.M. Barrie

J.M. Barrie was born on May 9, 1860, in Kirriemuir, Scotland. He was the ninth child and third son of David and Margaret ( Ogilvy ) Barrie. His father was a handloom weaver.
Barrie attended Glasgow Academy, Forfar Academy and Dumfries Academy. In 1887he enrolled in Edinburgh University, where he graduated in four years with a master's degree. He worked as a journalist for the Nottingham Journal before moving to London in 1885 to freelance.
When Barrie was six years old his older brother David died. Barrie set himself to console his mother, and later attributed this as his start down the road to becoming an author.
In 1894 he married the actress Mary Ansell. The marriage was childless and ended in divorce in 1909. However, he was friends with Arthur and Sylvia Llewellyn Davies, and when they died, became the legal guardian to their five sons: Peter, John, Michael, Nicholas and Arthur.
In later life, Barrie was struck by writer's cramp, and being ambidextrous, switched hands. He mentions in several places that what he wrote with his left hand had an altogether eerier quality than the more rational right.
Barrie died on 19th June 1937. His grave is in Kirriemuir cemetery, and his birthplace at 4, Brechin Road is maintained as a museum by the National Trust for Scotland.
