‘All children, except one, grow up…’

Welcome to the online home of the centenary edition of Peter and Wendy!  At Merchiston Publishing, the in-house publishing arm of the Scottish Centre for the Book and Edinburgh Napier University, we are proud to be bringing J.M. Barrie’s beloved children’s classic to a new audience.

Peter and Wendy will be published with the permission of Great Ormond Street Hospital, which holds the right to royalties from any performance and commercial publications or products of Peter Pan in perpetuity.

We would also like to thank the Edward Clark Trust, whose generous support makes this publication possible. Copies will be distributed free to children’s hospitals to benefit sick children and help transport them to the Neverland.

Using J.M. Barrie’s unabridged text, as well as classic illustrations to bring the story to life, we hope the book and the materials you find on the website will draw you into an unforgettable world of fairies, pirates, mermaids, redskins, crocodiles and lost boys!
