Peter Pan—the mischievous boy who never grows up and can fly—has captivated the imagination of children and adults for the past century with his adventures on the island of Neverland. Silke Leffler's ethereal art brings new magic to this classic by legendary author, J.M. Barrie.
J.M. Barrie was a Scottish author. He later moved to London, England where he became a playwright and novelist. The Llewelyn Davies boys, who he became their guardian following the deaths of their parents, inspired him to write the indelible and beloved classic, Peter Pan.
Silke Leffler was born in 1970 in Vorarlberg and grew up in Holland, Austria, Germany, and Africa. After graduation she did a tailor’s apprenticeship and studied textile design. Since 1998 she has worked as an illustrator for stationery and children’s books. She lives with her family near Lake Constance.
