It happen today…

On May 09. 1860 was born the Scottish author and dramatist Sir James Matthew Barrie, best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan, the “boy who wouldn’t grow up”,  a fairy tale of a young boy, who can fly and magically refuses to grow up, and a ordinary girl, Wendy, who have adventures on the small island of Neverland.
Peter is the leader of a gang of child, the Lost Boys, who usually interact with mermaids, Indians, fairies, pirates, and (from time to time) meet ordinary children from the world outside.
This fairy tale had its first stage performance on 27 December 1904.
In April 1929 Barrie specified that the copyright of the Peter Pan works should go to the nation’s leading children’s hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. The current status of the copyright is somewhat complex.
Sir Barrie died on 19 June 1937.

When the first baby laughed for the first time, his laugh broke into a million pieces, and they all went skipping about. That was the beginning of fairies…
