Sixteen String Jack And The Garden Of AdventureClearance, Junior Fiction, Picture Books
One day, Daisy’s grandmother takes her to an overgrown garden. Many, many years before other children had played in that garden – Sixteen String Jack and Dare Devil Dick were shipwrecked there; and often they fought pirates side by side till the sun went down. But it was only Sixteen String Jack whose fame would never die, for he grew up to become J.M. Barrie, creator of Peter Pan.
In this poignant and beautifully illustrated story, award winning writer Tom Pow and Sendak Fellow Ian Andrew search out the magic that, in time, would produce the most famous character in children’s literature.
‘This is the most charming and beautifully crafted story that captures the spirit and essence of imagination in the very same way that the garden at Moat Brae first inspired J M Barrie and the creation of his iconic character – Peter Pan’– Joanna Lumley, Patron, Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust
