A tale of romance and upheaval in a Scottish village by the author of Peter Pan.
Inspired by his mother’s stories of her youth, J. M. Barrie wrote this novel recounting a young man’s life in the little village of Thrums, in which the primary industry is weaving. Gavin is a minister in the austere sect known as the Auld Lichts, and he is about to stumble into love—but not without some elaborate complications. In addition, Thrums will be wracked by unrest as the craft of weaving is affected by the rise of industry, and workers chafe at the treatment they receive.Lighthearted and witty, yet filled with emotional power and suspense, this was a popular and beloved novel upon publication—even as it was eventually overshadowed in history by the author’s phenomenal classic, Peter Pan.
“All children grow up. All except one.” That special child is Peter Pan, and since making his debut on the stage in 1904, this eternal youth has carried boys and girls off to magical, marvelous Neverland. It’s a trip that all kids want to make, and with this easy-to-read version of the classic, everyone can fly “second to the right, and straight on till morning” with Peter. Along with Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, they’ll meet the fairy Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, and the menacing Captain Hook.

In this adventure, Peter is a seven-day-old infant who, "like all infants", used to be part bird. Peter has complete faith in his flying abilities, so, upon hearing a discussion of his adult life, he is able to escape out of the window of his London home and return to Kensington Gardens. Upon returning to the Gardens, Peter is shocked to learn from the crow Solomon Caw that he is not still a bird, but more like a human – Solomon says he is crossed between them as a "Betwixt-and-Between". Unfortunately, Peter now knows he cannot fly, so he is stranded in Kensington Gardens. At first, Peter can only get around on foot, but he commissions the building of a child-sized thrush's nest that he can use as a boat to navigate the Gardens by way of the Serpentine, the large lake that divides Kensington Gardens from Hyde Park.
Although he terrifies the fairies when he first arrives, Peter quickly gains favour with them and that’s when another Peter Pan adventure truly starts.
