1893. Sir James Matthew Baronet Barrie a Scottish journalist, playwright, and children's book writer who became world famous with his play and story about Peter Pan, the boy who lived in Never Land, had a war with Captain Hook, and would not grow up. Two of Them begins: She is a very pretty girl, though that counts for nothing with either of us, and her frock is yellow and brown, with pins here and there. Some of these pins are nearly a foot long, and when they are not in use she keeps them in her hat, through which she stabs them far down into her brain. This makes me shudder; but, so is she constructed that it does not seem to hurt, and in that human pincushion the daggers remain until it it time for her to put on her jacket again. Her size is six-and-a-quarter, and she can also get into sixes. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
