Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens Synopsis

This is one of four major literary works by Barrie featuring Peter Pan. Most of the text originally appeared as chapters 13–18 of Barrie’s 1902 novel The Little White Bird.

Many consider Kensington Gardens to be a prequel to Peter Pan. Here, Peter Pan is only one week old, and it recounts how Peter acquired some of the characteristics he has in the more famous story, including the ability to fly and his friendship with fairies.
