J.M. Barrie

J.M. Barrie (Sir James Matthew Barrie) (May 9, 1860–June 19, 1937)—Scottish journalist, author, and playwright—was the creator of Peter Pan. Inspired by the Llewelyn Davies boys, Barrie's Peter Pan (1904) is a magical "fairy play" about a boy who refused to grow up and an ordinary girl who travel together to Neverland. This classic children's story has become known the world over.
