About the author (2003)

J. M. Barrie was born in 1860 in the Scottish mill town of Kirriemuir. As a boy, he loved books about pirates and tales of wonder and magic. In the 1890s he began to write for the London stage, beginning his long career as a successful playwright. During his lifetime, Mr. Barrie wrote six novels for adults and more than forty plays, but Peter Pan is the only text he wrote for children.

Michael Hague has illustrated some of the best-loved works of children's literature, including The Velveteen Rabbit, The Wizard of Oz, and The Teddy Bears' Picnic. His lovingly detailed watercolors have earned him a dedicated following and a reputation as one of America's foremost illustrators of books for children. He lives with his wife, Kathleen, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
