Lost Boy: The Story of the Man Who Created Peter Pan

Jane Yolen, illus. by Steve Adams, Dutton, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-525-47886-7
Fittingly for the writer who would create "the boy who wouldn't grow up," this biography of J.M. Barrie is just as focused on his childhood as it is on his adult life. Before Barrie began his legendary play he first honed his writing, faced love and hardship, and met the five Llewelyn Davies boys, who changed his life forever. Excerpts from the Peter Pan tales and play draw parallels between Barrie's stories and his life experiences, while Yolen's narrative and Adams's paintings shine with the same sense of adventure that has given Barrie's creation such longevity. Ages 6–8. (Aug.)
