J M Barrie’s legacy to the nation’s sick children is to receive a fresh boost from the latest edition of the Angus author’s most famous fairytale.
Part of the profits from sales of the audio book will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, continuing Barrie’s legacy to the hospital he gifted the rights to Peter Pan to in 1929.
Barrie aficionado Lumley has been joined by an all-star stage and screen cast including Kit Harington, Alex Jennings, Alex Kingston, Helen McCrory, Jennifer Saunders, Juliet Stevenson, David Walliams and Zoe Wanamaker for the project.
The story has been abridged by Martin Jarvis, who also reads, and introduced by renowned children’s author, Sir Michael Morpurgo.
Ms Lumley said: “He haunts us all: Peter Pan has never grown up and has never let us forget him.
“His shadow found in a drawer by Tinker Bell trails round the corners of our eyes.
“As I now know, like a grown-up Wendy, that most of our lives are lived in our minds, this strange, thrilling, charming and unsettling work beckons children and adults alike into the world of make-believe, without which our lives would be intolerable.
“A host of stars has gathered to read the story aloud; their gift to the charity is a gift to us all.”
Originally written as a play, the much-loved story of the boy who could fly and his pirate adventures in Neverland with the Lost Boys and the Darling children, was first published as a novel, Peter & Wendy, in 1911.
The book has gone on to sell over 85 million copies in 29 different languages, as well as being made into 13 films.

During their eight-season run on HBO, Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff had a habit of playing pranks on the cast and crew. Not only did they prank Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) during season 1, they also got one over on Kit Harington (Jon Snow) that left him quaking.
Kit Harington believed he would have to play Jon Snow disfigured and bald
According to Business Insider, Weiss and Benioff got Harington good while shooting the eighth episode of season 1 titled “The Pointy End.” The producers convinced Harington that Jon Snow was going to suffer horrible burns. They told him that it would destroy his hair and disfigure his face, which meant hours in the makeup chair for the rest of the series.
GOT writer and producer Bryan Cogman wrote in his book Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones: Season 1 & 2 that the aired version of the episode featured Jon Snow setting a wight on fire at Castle Black to protect Lord Commander Mormont (James Cosmo).
But Weiss and Benioff sent Harington a fake version of the script. In the scene they gave Harington, Jon Snow pulls burning drapes from a fire and throws them at the wight. The fire proceeds to engulf them both with Mormont exclaiming, “Gods boy. I was wrong about you. You’re a ranger, through and through.”
The fake scene ended with the line, “Jon smiles, his teeth shining brightly in his destroyed face. Mormont, sickened, has to look away.”
I am really happy to inform that we have a new and beautiful look here. The site was with the same layout from the beggining (over 3 years) and, although I really loved this, it is time to get a new look.
With my personal situation, it was impossible to have a new look here but my brother gave me the best gift, and ordered this layout for me. So, thanks to Nicky and my friend, Gemma, who made this possible.
What do you think on new style? I love the new photoshoot and also, love colors and style here but I am looking for opinions to make the site better everyday. So, if you have comments, opinions, suggestions, if you find errors…please, feel free to contact me. I really need suggestions to make the site great for you all.
