J.M. Barrie


J.M. Barrie

James Matthew Barrie, born in Kirriemuir, Angus in 1860, was a novelist and playwright, best known as the creator of Peter Pan.Moving to London from Scotland as a young adult, Barrie began publishing pieces in London newspapers. In 1897, he first met the Llewelyn Davies family, who became an important fixture in his life. He became a close companion of Sylvia Llewelyn Davies and her five sons, taking custody of them after her death. The character of Peter Pan was invented to entertain the elder two boys, and was drawn heavily from all the boys, but in particular the middle son Peter. He maintained a close relationship with the surviving Llewelyn Davies boys throughout his life.Barrie died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Marylebone in 1937. He bequeathed the copyright to all Peter Pan books to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The story of the little boy who refused to grow up has captured the imagination of generations of children (and the adults they grew into) since its publication over 100 years ago. Peter Pan flies in through the bedroom window one night and teaches Wendy, John and Michael to fly. He lures them away from their home and parents and takes them away to endless adventures in the magical Neverland, where they meet the wicked Captain Hook and a host of other characters. Funny, charming, and touching, Peter Pan is an unforgettable story.

My daughter loves her new voxblock and listens to the stories over and over again. Wonderful product and have already recommended to friends. Love the mini books too and the fact there's no wifi. My 6 year old daughter was able to use it directly from the box with no input from me..it was charged and ready to go!




It’s a robust quality product. It’s simple for my 5 year old grandson to use. He loves listening to the wide range of literature available.

Voxblock has been such an amazing gift for my niece, and I love the fact it’s a never ending gift idea being able to get her new stories for her library. She really enjoys spending time listening to books and is happy to replay stories. She’s even got the animals (dog and cat) chilled out listening with her.
