People around the world know the story of Peter Pan, the boy who would not grow up, but not many know the story of his creator, J. M. Barrie. Barrie’s young childhood was marked by sorrow, but also held great adventure. His adult life and relationship with the Davies family brought about a second childhood that helped him to create his lasting triumph. Masterfully illustrated by Steve Adams and using Barrie’s own words, Jane Yolen tells the story of the author and the boys who changed his life.

Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan, but not many know the story of his creator, J.M. Barrie. He was a gifted writer, playwright, and a second father to a group of brothers who would inspire him to create his lasting masterpiece.

In Lost Boy, you'll find out where Barrie grew up, what his family was like, and what he wrote before his career took off with the opening night of Peter Pan.

Each turn of the page showcases a full color illustration, as well as a quote from one of Barrie's works. The paintings are beautiful and magical, and capture the essence of Barrie's childlike legacy.

Lost Boy is a great resource for reports on this favorite author, or simply a great companion after a family read of Peter Pan.
