All you need is trust and a little bit of pixie dust!

I would like to thank the QI minisite on the BBC website for this little literary related nugget of information that I certainly didn’t know before.

JM Barrie, who wrote the children’s classic Peter Pan, was less than 5 feet tall and he also didn’t have to shave until he was 24. I wonder if that had any influence over the original title of Barrie’s stage play of Peter Pan which was originally titled ‘Peter Pan or the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up’.

Barrie famously gave the rights to the play to Great Ormond Street Hospital a few years before he died.

About justwilliam1959

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
