Peter Pan in Kensington Garden

J M Barrie

1977

The story of Peter Pan had its genesis in the 1902 novel "the Little White Bird", the central chapters of which tell of a child "who escaped from being a human when he was seven days old and flew back to Kensington Gardens". Barrie developed this story both into a play (first performed in 1904 but not published until 1928) and this book of 1906.
