I have one pound seventeen here, and two and six at the office; I can cut off my coffee at the office, say ten shillings, making two nine and six, with your eighteen and three makes three nine seven, with five naught naught in my cheque-book makes eight nine seven-who is that moving?-eight nine seven, dot and carry seven-don't speak, my own-and the pound you lent to that man who came to the door-quiet, child-dot and carry child-there, you've done it!-did I say nine nine seven? yes, I said nine nine seven; the question is, can we try it for a year on nine nine seven?""Of course we can, George," she cried. But she was prejudiced in Wendy's favour, and he was really the grander character of the two."Remember mumps," he warned her almost threateningly, and off he went again. "Mumps one pound, that is what I have put down, but I daresay it will be more like thirty shillings-don't speak-measles one five, German measles half a guinea, makes two fifteen six-don't waggle your finger-whooping-cough, say fifteen shillings"-and so on it went, and it added up differently each time; but at last Wendy just got through, with mumps reduced to twelve six, and the two kinds of measles treated as one.There was the same excitement over John, and Michael had even a narrower squeak; but both were kept, and soon, you might have seen the three of them going in a row to Miss Fulsom's Kindergarten school, accompanied by their nurse.Mrs. Darling loved to have everything just so, and Mr. Darling had a passion for being exactly like his neighbours; so, of course, they had a nurse. As they were poor, owing to the amount of milk the children drank, this nurse was a prim Newfoundland dog, called Nana, who had belonged to no one in particular until the Darlings engaged her. She had always thought children important, however, and the Darlings had become acquainted with her in Kensington Gardens, where she spent most of her spare time peeping into perambulators, and was much hated by careless nursemaids, whom she followed to their homes and complained of to their mistresses. She proved to be quite a treasure of a nurse. How thorough she was at bath-time, and up at any moment of the night if one of her charges made the slightest cry. Of course her kennel was in the nursery. She had a genius for knowing when a cough is a thing to have no patience with and when it needs stocking around your throat. She believed to her last day in old-fashioned remedies like rhubarb leaf, and made sounds of contempt over all this new-fangled talk about 5germs, and so on. It was a lesson in propriety to see her escorting the children to school, walking sedately by their side when they were well behaved, and butting them back into line if they strayed. On John's footer days she never once forgot his sweater, and she usually carried an umbrella in her mouth in case of rain. There is a room in the basement of Miss Fulsom's school where the nurses wait. They sat on forms, while Nana lay on the floor, but that was the only difference. They affected to ignore her as of an inferior social status to themselves, and she despised their light talk. She resented visits to the nursery from Mrs. Darling's friends, but if they did come she first whipped off Michael's pinafore and put him into the one with blue braiding, and smoothed out Wendy and made a dash at John's hair.

J. M. Barrie's classic work Peter Pan (1904) tells the story of the Darling children's journey to the magical islands of Neverland with Peter Pan, an adventurous young boy who refuses to grow up. The omniscient narrator--who addresses the audience in the first person--introduces the Darling family, which includes Mr. and Mrs. Darling; their three children, Wendy, John, and Michael; and a dog named Nana. The family resides in London, where the children share a nursery. In the present, Wendy tells Mrs. Darling about a boy named Peter Pan, who visits her dreams from a place called Neverland.After the children go to sleep, Peter Pan unexpectedly enters through their bedroom window, startling Mrs. Darling. When Mr. and Mrs. Darling leave the house to attend a nearby dinner party, Peter returns with his fairy, Tinker Bell. Wendy awakes and helps Peter attach his shadow to his body. Peter tells Wendy that he has no parents and that he refuses to ever become an adult; he lives in Neverland with a group of abandoned children who refer to themselves as "the lost boys." Intrigued with Neverland, Wendy asks him about fairies, which reminds Peter that he accidentally trapped Tinker Bell inside a closed drawer.The play Peter Pan; or, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up was first produced in December 1904, with Gerald du Maurier--Sylvia's brother and the father of writer Daphne du Maurier--playing both Mr. Darling, the father of the children spirited away by Peter Pan, and Captain Hook, the villainous pirate whom Peter defeats. That play added a new character to the mythology of the English-speaking world in the figure of Peter Pan, the eternal boy. Though the popular conception of the character is that of a charmingly impish figure, bent more on adventure and escaping the tedium of adulthood than anything truly sinister, the Peter of the play and books is anarchical, selfish, and murderous. For example, he kills his compatriots "the Lost Boys" when they show signs of maturing. Notes by Barrie indicate that Peter was in fact intended to be the true villain of the story. The scene in the play introducing Captain Hook was included only as a means of filling the time needed for a set change. The iconic buccaneer was retained in the 1911 novelization of the play, Peter and Wendy.Most of Barrie's stage triumphs have been dismissed by critics as marred by ephemeral whimsicalities, but at least six of his plays--Quality Street (1901), The Admirable Crichton (1902), What Every Woman Knows (1908), The Twelve-Pound Look (1910), The Will (1913), and Dear Brutus (1917)--are of indisputably high quality. Barrie idealized childhood and desexualized femininity but took a disenchanted view of adult life, as reflected in the gentle melancholy of those works. Sometimes he expressed his disenchantment humorously, as in The Admirable Crichton, in which a butler becomes the king of a desert island, with his former employers as serfs; sometimes satirically, as in The Twelve-Pound Look; and sometimes tragically, as in Dear Brutus, in which nine men and women whose lives have come to grief are given a magical second chance, only to wreck themselves again on the reefs of their own temperaments. The elaborate stage directions in Barrie's plays are sometimes more rewarding than their dialogue itself. Barrie proved himself a master of stage effects and of the delineation of character, but the sentimental and whimsical elements in his work have discouraged frequent revivals.Barrie was created a baronet in 1913 and was awarded the Order of Merit in 1922. He became president of the Society of Authors in 1928 and chancellor of the University of Edinburgh in 1930.

The Little White Bird (1902) is a novel by J. M. Barrie. Inspired by his friendship with George Llewelyn Davies, the grandson of writer George du Maurier, Barrie penned this heartwarming tale of imagination and adventure featuring for the first time his beloved character Peter Pan. Broken into short episodes, The Little White Bird follows Captain W., a childless veteran, on his visits to David and his family in Kensington Gardens. Through their friendship, David receives an education in wonder, while the Captain learns what it could feel like to be a father. Set in Victorian London, the novel follows Captain W. on his long walks through the city. With no family of his own, he finds comfort in friendship with David, the son of a local governess. Enchanted by the Captain’s vibrant imagination, David loves most of all his tales of Peter Pan, a magical boy who never grows old, who lives with fairies and never says no to adventure. One night, the story goes, a young girl is locked out of her house in Kensington Gardens past dark. Scared and cold, she finds safety with Peter and the fairies, who have gathered to celebrate life with a magnificent ball. Written for children and adults alike, The Little White Bird was the book that started it all, launching Barrie’s career as a popular storyteller whose tales of the present day are filled with the wit and wonder of history’s greatest fairytales. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of J. M. Barrie’s The Little White Bird is a classic work of Scottish literature reimagined for modern readers.

"Peter Pan" is a classic tale enjoyed by children for more than 100 years, although these days, it is better known through various movie adaptions that have been made from it. And yet, as they say, the 'book is better than the movie.' Why? Because movie makers are notorious for making changes to the books they are based on, and these changes tend to take away from the magic the author poured into the original. It is unfortunately the case that with "Peter Pan," even the book has been adapted many times, too. Well, this is your chance to read the tale as it was originally written with its original illustrations, drinking in the magic that started it all. With even the cover being inspired by the original, this edition is about as close as you can get to capturing the original thrill of "Peter Pan." "Peter Pan" was originally published in 1911 by J. M. Barrie with the title, "Peter and Wendy." This edition is carefully constructed from that original text. It also contains the original illustrations by F. D. Bedford.
